On Tuesday there was an incident in the parking lot of Kohl’s located in Monmouth Country, New Jersey. A four-month-old baby was sitting in the back of a hot and locked car. With an outside temperature going into the upper 80s, it didn’t look good for the child. Luckily Steven Eckel was there to save the day for the child.
Eckel heard the sound of the baby crying and broke the window of the car to save the child. It is absolutely a heroic act, and when you hear these stories, the media often wants to interview you. Well the sister network of CNN, HLN, decided to give Eckel an interview.
It should be noted that during the live interview, Eckel was wearing a blue “Trump 2016” shirt. During the live interview with HLN, it was shown. However some people can’t always catch the live broadcasts and turn into the reruns.
Those people that turned into the reruns were greeted with the same segments, except for one crucial detail. HLN decided to blur the Trump logo. Yes that is right, they couldn’t bear the thought of Trump getting any sort of good news so they blurred out Eckel’s shirt.
This is actually a form of censorship. This hero wanted to wear something that was pro-Trump. So while he does get the interview, his pro-Trump message isn’t shown. This goes with the narrative that CNN and their affiliates are doing what they can to influence voters to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Think about it. Why else would they even consider blurring this image? There was nothing on the shirt that could be considered offensive. There was no foul language. There was absolutely nothing except a “Trump 2016” logo. And yet they still decided to blur the image.
So not only is this considered a form of censorship, but it is another way that CNN and its other channels actively doing what they can to influence this election. There was absolutely ZERO reason for HLN to blur this image. You can bet that if the Eckel were wearing a pro-Clinton shirt they wouldn’t have blurred the image.
Once again the media is proving that they are doing whatever they can to influence voters to go for Clinton. The media seems to be absolutely against anything that can help Trump in any way, shape, or form that they are going to do whatever they can to show people that anything that has to do with Trump is bad.
This had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the election or anything related to politics. And even if it did, this would be considered absolutely wrong! This was a human-interest story! Shockingly enough, people like to hear about babies being saved from death! Yet the media couldn’t stand the fact that this HERO was wearing something that was pro-Trump.
They couldn’t tell him to take off the shirt. They couldn’t tell him to wear something different. So instead they decide to have it on the live broadcast, but then blur it out for those people that couldn’t see the original broadcast.
This is a much bigger deal than people realize. This is a form of censorship against a political candidate! It might start off small like this. A person has a pro candidate shirt blurred. Then it turns into something bigger, like a rally not being shown. Then it gets progressively bigger and bigger until eventually they are not even talking about this candidate at all!
That is bad because then the government can take over and tell this network what to say and how to say it. Once that happens we are in a dictatorship to say the least. That is something that we are actively trying to avoid. But the media doesn’t seem to grasp that as they are censoring everything that could be considered pro-Trump.
This unnecessary action by the HLN network once again shows that the media is going what they can to influence people to vote for Clinton and any other Democrat. The media used to only report the facts and never have any political bias whatsoever. Now it appears that media outlets are going to have incredible bias.
Once again the media was censoring something that couldn’t even turn political if they tried. They were talking about this individual saving a baby from a hot car and yet HLN decided to make a political stance on the matter. They just effective proved that everything they report on politics is going to be slanted towards the liberal side.
So they effectively shut out an entire political side, which is only going to hurt them in the long run because it will affect their ratings. People are going to see this and realize that this network is going to slant EVERYTHING towards politics. They are going to ram it down your throat even on subjects that aren’t political in nature.
This is not only going to hurt the HLN network, but it is going to hurt CNN as well. People are going to realize that they are sister-networks and that will make people wonder if CNN is going to do the same thing. This was a disgusting act of censorship and people should realize that completely.
Once again there was a heart warming news section about a man saving a baby and yet the HLN network decided to have some completely unnecessary censorship of that hero and his Trump shirt. Share this article if you are sick and tired of the media trying to censor everything and anything possible. This is hopefully going to hurt this network in the long run.
