Boston, Ma — The Media Equality Project (MEP) has announced a rally in Atlanta outside CNN’s headquarters at noon on Saturday, July 22 from noon until 1:30 pm Eastern. MEP co-founders Melanie Morgan and Brian Maloney will be joined by their volunteer leaders, local political activists and Atlanta talk show host Bryan Crabtree of Biz1190 and AM920 The Answer to call for unbiased, balanced coverage of national issues that people care about.
When President Trump criticized CNN for their “Fake News” it seems to have caused them to double down. CNN has shown an obsessive focus on conspiracy theories that have been debunked and stories based on discredited sources. Numerous CNN stories have been corrected or retracted, and several journalists have been fired or forced to resign in disgrace. This has resulted in a loss of viewers at a critical time for the network as CNN/Time Warner and AT&T pursue a merger.
“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 Brian Maloney, MEP co-founder.
“We are fired up to confront CNN’s blackmail, doxxing and #CollusionDelusion head-on,” added co-founder Melanie Morgan. “Our message to the network: No more lies, conspiracy theories, or punks with reporter pads!”
Bryan Crabtree noted, “If there’s one anti-Trump protester standing in Times Square with a sign, CNN will rush a camera to the scene seizing the opportunity to make our President 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. Americans want real, truthful news and that’s why CNN is not even in the top ten – even trailing Nick at Nite.”
