As much as CNN likes to call out conservatives about fake news stories, CNN itself was labeled as fake news by President Donald Trump. He constantly condemned the fake news media, including CNN.
Trump’s huge rally in Ohio, didn’t get an audience on the three major cable news networks.
The reason: They didn’t carry it.
C-SPAN carried the rally as part of its Road to 2024, as Trump is a potential candidate in the next election, and it also drew coverage on outlets like Newsmax and One America News Network. Fox News stayed with its Saturday night lineup of Watters World and Justice with Judge Jeanine; CNN featured an interview with former Vice President Al Gore, among other segments, and MSNBC had The Week with Joshua Johnson.
CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta posted a video late Wednesday night that showed supporters of President Donald Trump screaming at him. He said the behavior “isn’t normal” in politics.
In the clip, Trump supporters in Arizona scream at Acosta while he puts on his face mask. Most of them are not wearing masks.
“This happens at just about every Trump rally. I’ve covered five presidential campaigns… long enough to know this isn’t normal. Sometimes I’ll scan the crowd, not for the folks who are chanting but for the people who look back at me silently, letting me know they know it’s wrong,” he wrote.

Another CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan tried to interview a Trump supporter but didn’t get the answer he wanted.
Donie O’Sullivan is a reporter at CNN, where he focuses on the real-world effects of disinformation and conspiracy theories he is even considered an expert in this area by the outlet.
O’Sullivan tried to interview a Trump fan at the former President’s Ohio rally yesterday– the first since he left office.
In the clip, O’Sullivan asks a man wearing a red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and smoking a cigarette for his name, to which he replied “My name is go f*** yourself”.
After a short pause, O’Sullivan says “Right.”, and asks “Are you from Ohio?” to which the man answers “No”.
The video was allegedly scrubbed from the internet but one of our fans sent us a copy of the video.
What would you answer if a CNN reporter asked you a similar question?
