According to former CNN Contributor Paris Dennard CNN “benched” Pro-Trump contributor Steve Cortes after he worked with Prager U to debunk The Charlottesville Lie.
CNN “benched” its own contributor Steve Cortes, said Dennard, after Cortes joined Prager U to present a video titled, The Charlottesville Lie.
Here is the video:
Don’t be fooled by media activists masquerading as journalists.

Did President @RealDonaldTrump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots?
The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? pic.twitter.com/JjvS0G3zGz

We looked into a Hollywood reporter article from four days ago that touched on this:
Steve Cortes, a prominent surrogate for the Trump campaign in 2016 and “happy warrior” for President Trump, has not appeared on CNN in the U.S. in more than a month.
They also directly tied this to the same claim made by Dennard:
While his dry spell dates to before the incident, Cortes came under fire for appearing in a Aug 5. video called “The Charlottesville Hoax” for PragerU that criticized media coverage of Trump’s infamous “very fine people” comment.
“They just won’t book him,” a former CNN contributor said of Cortes. “They’ll just pay him. They won’t fire him, because that’s just blatant. But they won’t book him, and they’ll tell all the producers not to book him.”
It is unclear whether Dennard is just going off this report or he knows behind the scenes stuff but either way this is disgusting. Why should Cortes be banned for accurately pointing out the Mainstream Presses lies on Charlottesville?
There is no question that CNN is done even acting like they are objective and now is just purging those who disagree with their far-left bias. Will Stelter and Acosta get mad about this?
