Yes it TRUE, President Trump cut ties with CNN, and is refusing to send his spokespeople to any of the network’s programs. This has effectively shutout the network out from having any voices from the government on the air.
“We’re sending surrogates to places where we think it makes sense to promote our agenda,” stated a White House official, who claimed that CNN is not such a place. According to Politico, the official continued by saying that the prohibition will not be permanent.
A CNN journalist said that this is the White House’s endeavor to lower the media network’s ratings as a means of punishment for them. “They’re trying to cull CNN from the herd,” the reporter said. The last time an official from the Trump government went on CNN on January 8, when Kellyanne Conway made her last appearance over there. Nevertheless, operatives with the Trump White House are still answering questions from CNN contributors.
While progressives are up in arms about it, former president Barack Obama had similar tiffs with Fox News during his eight-year term as president. An ex-official in his government acknowledged that they had their “battles with Fox,” and that there were times where “we sent people on other networks and not on Fox.”
Taking into consideration the way CNN has behaved towards Trump ever since he first entered the presidential race, when they incessantly taunted him that he thought had a shot of winning, it’s clear that he would not want to appear there.
