Two rallies protesting manufactured, fake news will be held outside CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta at noon on Saturday.
The Media Equality Project (MEP) announced on Tuesday that co-founders Melanie Morgan and Brian Maloney, along with volunteer leaders, local political activists, and Atlanta talk show host Bryan Crabtree of Biz 1190 and AM 920 The Answer, will converge upon the grounds of the news outlet’s headquarters “to call for unbiased, balanced coverage of national issues that people care about.”
The Main Street Patriots, a group aligned with the Tea Party, will also participate in the demonstration.
“For too long, CNN has been allowed to warp, misrepresent and outright manufacture news events out of thin air. Real damage has been done to the targets of CNN’s misreporting, not to mention the country as a whole,” said Maloney.
CNN’s “obsessive focus with conspiracy theories that have been debunked and stories based on discredited sources” will be called out during the rally.
“We are fired up to confront CNN’s blackmail, doxing and #CollusionDelusion head-on,” said Morgan. “Our message to the network: No more lies, conspiracy theories, or punks with reporter pads!”
According to Debbie Dooley of the Main Street Patriots, the group plans to protest CNN every month, “as long as they are a Fake News outlet.” She said, “Trump supporters need to rise up and say ‘ENOUGH’ with a loud voice!”
Bryan Crabtree observed the way that CNN takes every opportunity to make President Trump look defeated. “It will be interesting to see if CNN will notice that real news is happening outside their front door as Americans gather to protest the hysteria and fake news being peddled by their network every day,” he said, noting, “Americans want real, truthful news and that’s why CNN is not even in the top ten – even trailing Nick at Nite.”
For the past several months, the MEP has documented “the biased reporting, offensive on-air behavior, slanderous inaccuracies and other examples of manufactured news by CNN reporters.” Visit MediaEqualizer.com for updates.
