Default Told CNN to take a hike

I've been a ACW reenactor for 30 yrs. Out unit has been in numerous movies, TV shows, Conan, news,etc...A high level CNN exec contacted us earlier about our upcoming event wanting permission to film and do interviews. Nope. Take a hike. It's on private property and we know how you will distort us and the facts these days. We have worked with them in the years past and they treated us well in their reporting. Can't see that happening these days. I even spent an entire day with them a couple of decades ago.

I can just imagine their video footage of us, editing, and voice over story about all of it.

Any news agency, the slant will be there, I put them in the same category as slimy used car salesman, and with the lower than whaleshit politicians.

You'd be poster children for anything they wanted to label racist and you know they'd post every name and call you all a bunch of racist. I can see it now. "hate is alive and well in (your city)"
Good call to tell them off.

Of course, they won't admit that they'd be the ones spewing the hate.

I can't imagine the smear tactics they'd employ on Civil War Reenactors. Holy hell. Good on ya for sending them packing.

CNN - In a celebration of the days of slavery and white supremacy, a group of Civil War re-enactors carry on a long held tradition of remembrance in tribute of our divided nation and the beginning of systemic racism in our country...


Yeah, it would go something like that but worse.
