Was It CNN’s Biggest Mistake?
On Wednesday, CNN gave 90 minutes of airtime to Trump and gave his authoritarian revenge tour its biggest legitimacy boost yet.
We’ve been shouting from the rooftops about this media malpractice since the Town Hall was announced weeks ago. Now we want to get your thoughts. Take our latest community survey to let us know your thoughts on Trump’s Town Hall.
We’re eager to read your responses. As this campaign season continues, Trump is only going to be shoved in our faces more and more. And sadly, it looks like mainstream media outlets are as happy as ever to do his bidding for a little rating boost.
Yes, the media is falling for the same mistakes as they did in 2016 and 2020. But we’re not. We know the Trump Trap, we know the game he’s playing, and we’re ready to fight it.
But we need to be on the same page. That’s why surveys like these are so important. They let us hear directly from the pro-democracy community about the issues that matter most.
Let us know. Did the pro-democracy movement take a hit Wednesday night? What’s the best way to fight back against the media’s legitimization of Trump? How are you going to fight back against Trump’s return in your community?
