I’m glad somebody’s taking a stand like this against CNN! More airports across the country need to turn it off also.
CNN is usually played in a lot of the business establishments and organizations having TV in their lobbies. If there is one thing Donald Trump knows how to do is brand. Once he gets you into his crosshairs after you have pissed him off the only person that can save you is God himself.
This establishment decided to make a fundamental change by removing CNN due to a plethora of fake new stories, and I couldn’t agree with them more.
From CBS Chicago:
Not long after President-elect Donald Trump accused CNN of being “fake news” and refused to take a question from a CNN reporter, the Valparaiso Family YMCA has declared the channel off-limits in its workout room.
“To me, it’s blatant censorship that I find very surprising,” said Greg Quartucci, who has been a member of the YMCA in Valparaiso for more than a decade.
He said CNN has been a fixture on a TV at the Valparaiso Y for years.
Quartucci said the Y has given in to a minority who complained about CNN, and he called it “blatant censorship.”
“It is a Christian organization. It’s all about freedom and opportunity, and what they’re doing, I personally think is against what they have on their walls and against what they have as their mission,” he said.
A statement from the Valparaiso Y said:
“In order to eliminate perceived political bias associated with national news outlets, the Valparaiso Family YMCA will only be showing local news channels in the future.”
I stand behind this owner 100 percent and any other establishment that makes the same decision to take CNN off of their TV stations. There are other bipartisan news channels that you can promote if that’s where you want to go, but CNN is not one of them.
