My Take On The CNN Protest Against Fake News: July 22, 2017

Last Saturday, July 22, 2017 … people who are tired of all the fake news, the slander and the assassination of innocent people’s character, came together … in protest … in front on the CNN Headquarters, in Atlanta, Ga.

The founders of Media Equalizer, Brian Maloney and Melanie Morgan were present and vocalized their frustration with the way CNN has conducted smear campaigns against those in alignment with President Trump.

Brian Crabtree, a local talk radio show host in Atlanta, told Breitbart News CNN is “destroying” American culture.”  Crabtree has a valid point when he says that CNN fails to talk about how illegal border crossings are down 70 to 80 percent, and that $65 to $80 billion regulations have evaporated, since President Trump has been in office … for only six months.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported only 30 people were in attendance.  The Hill quoted the AJC, with the same numbers.  Breitbart reported 150 people were in attendance.  The people who organized the event … and, would have a more factual account … reported that there were as many as 250 people who were coming and going during the protest.

What cannot be disputed is that there were no people injured, there was no looting, no buildings or cars were set on fire, and no store windows were broken.  There was no garbage, paper cups, articles of clothing … nothing … left behind for someone else to cleanup. The protesters, while disagreeing with some of the requests by law enforcement (and, challenging some of those requests), respected the police officers, and abided by the law.

I feel that the message sent to the nation is not only that America is tired of fake news, false hysteria and character assassinations …but also … there is a dignified and peaceful way to protest that upholds and respects the very right to assemble in peace and the freedom of speech … as afforded by our glorious U.S. Constitution.

History is not always made by large numbers.  History is made by people willing to stand together, in sweltering heat, no matter the size of the group, to stand up for American values and against the fake news that is tearing this country apart.

As it was with the famous Woolworth’s sit-in in Greensboro, N.C., in 1960 … first day there were four … the next day, 25 … and that number grew into mass protests all other the United States … so will it be … I believe … for the CNN protest and the fight against false hysteria, biased character assassinations, and fake news of which is like a cancer, metastasized and destroying this nation.

God Bless Brian Maloney, Melanie Morgan, the other organizers of this particular protest, and the brave, selfless people who stood in the sweltering heat, mindless to any threat that might have arisen or to any chiding by CNN, or false reporting … for taking on the media conglomerate and fighting to bring back truth in reporting.

This is America.  Give us the truth, and “We, the people,” will make up our own minds and do our own thinking.

  1. Debbie, Your comment concerning the appropriate manner to protest is spot on. I was present during the 9.12 March on Washington in 2009 and 2010, as well as the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor gathering later in 2010. So many fine people acting responsibly and with great civility with no other intention than to let their thoughts be heard. Although there was very little to do, I was part of the clean up teams for these events. Loaded with extra large trash bags, it took no time at all to pick up what little trash remained. Conservatives protest as it should be done. I left all three of these events with a warm fuzzy feeling about my fellow Americans. Wish we got together more often.

    • Thank you so much for reading and responding. And … thank you for all you have done in an effort to preserve our conservative values! If we all do our part, we can do so much.
