YMCA Accused Of Censorship After Banning CNN From TVs

Posted January 20, 2017

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.

“The timing of this was very peculiar because I think it was basically a day or two after Mr. Trump claimed that CNN was fake news,” Valparaiso YMCA member Greg Quartucci said. “I think they switched to the cooking channel.”

LOL, censorship? It's not like they are stopping anyone from watching it at home. But when it's forced on you, then that's a problem.

Well exactly. But he's ok with limiting that freedom, as long as it suits his own interests.
