CNN Offers '24/7 Armed Guard Protection' To Reporters Who 'Criticize Trump'
Critics say hiring 24/7 armed guards go directly against networks' anti gun stance
Following CNN's heavy 'Anti Trump' narrative and bias from its new anchors and reporters, the news outlet has now offered around the clock protection to its staff after The President called fake news “the enemy of the people.”
According to TMZ, the Pro-Democrat new network fears that Trump's accusing them of 'dishonest reporting' and 'fake news' will lead to violence against journalists.
CNN is offering employees security to and from work, including 24/7 armed guards.
Many critics of the new network claim to hiring 24/7 armed guards go directly against their 'anti-gun' stance.
Only recently, Jim Acosta’s White House press pass was revoked following a confrontational and disrespectful exchange with President Trump last week.
It's unclear whether Acosta has opted for 24/7 security.
According to The WJ: He recently wrote a string of tweets condemning fake news and asking the media to report accurately and fairly. In his opinion, this is what is necessary to bring Americans together.
CNN, in particular, has a history of drawing criticism from the president.
During one of Trump’s press conferences recently, an incident caught on camera involving CNN reporter Jim Acosta earned even more criticism than usual from the president.
Acosta, who is strongly opposed to Trump, went on the offense during the Wednesday conference, attacking Trump’s characterization of the migrant caravan.
He shot the president loaded questions, such as asking if Trump thinks he “demonized immigrants” during the midterm elections, to which Trump answered, “No, I want them to come into the country, but they have to come to the country legally.”
Trump called on another reporter, but Acosta interrupted and refused to let a White House aide pass the shared press microphone to the next journalist.
“I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them,” Trump told Acosta.
“You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”
Trump certainly has no qualms about calling people out. However, he’s not supporting violence by doing so.
People like to characterize Trump supporters as violent idiots just looking for a fight when most are actively trying to bring unity back to politics. Hopefully, CNN’s precautions will be completely undue.
