Local Station Says CNN Spiked Segment on Border After Learning Reporter Was Pro-Wall (Mediaite)  

A San Diego TV station is claiming that CNN reached out to them, asking if they could provide one of their reporters to offer a “local view” from the U.S.-Mexico border — but declined when they discovered that the reporter, and the station at large, are pro-wall.

KUSI — an independent station owned by McKinnon Broadcasting — says that they were contacted by CNN on Thursday morning asking for one of their reporters to offer the perspective from the border. The network, in response, supplied reporter Dan Plante, whom KUSI says has filed “dozens” of reports from the border.

CNN, according to the San Diego station though, abandoned their request.
