POLL: Is the media intentionally hiding the truth from the public about the border crisis?
President Trump has repeatedly slammed the media for their “fake news” reporting, but today saw the misleading reports extend to a new level.
Even as President Trump has sought to highlight the severity of the illegal immigration crisis, liberal media has latched onto one phrase and repeated it over and over, claiming in their television broadcasts that President Trump is touting a “manufactured crisis.”
Amid an ongoing government shutdown, which has now lasted nearly three weeks with no end in sight, President Trump addressed the nation on Tuesday night from the Oval Office, to share his concerns about the dangers and costs of illegal immigration. He did so to explain why he is insisting that any government funding must include the $5.7 billion he has requested for a border barrier.
One TV station broadcasted an altered version of Trump’s address, changing his coloring and appearance in a grotesque manner. The staffer responsible for the incident has been fired, the TV station later confirmed.
Thursday, as President Trump was touring the southern border in Texas, CNN’s Jim Acosta did his own report from the border, showing the tall steel fence, and declaring to CNN’s audience that the area was perfectly safe and tranquil. Acosta told viewers that President Trump was just there to do a “photo op.”
President Trump held a roundtable discussion with U.S. Border Patrol officials, and toured the border on Thursday near McAllen, Texas. However, most networks did not even broadcast it to their viewers.
