Conservatives are planning to protest CNN’s “blackmail, doxxing and #CollusionDelusion” outside the network’s headquarters on Saturday in Atlanta.
The Media Equality Project (MEP) will be joined by their volunteer leaders, local political activists and Atlanta talk show host Bryan Crabtree according to a press release.

“When President Trump criticized CNN for their “Fake News” it seems to have caused them to double down. CNN has shown an obsessive focus with conspiracy theories that have been debunked and stories based on discredited sources. Numerous CNN stories have been corrected or retracted, and several journalists have been fired or forced to resign in disgrace. This has resulted in a loss of viewers at a critical time for the network as CNN/Time Warner and AT&T pursue a merger,” the press release said.
“The Media Equality Project has to hit a nerve with Americans who feel powerless to do or say anything about the horrible quality of news reporting in this country. We have watched hour after hour of biased, inaccurate, slanted and warped coverage of this administration, coming from outlets like MSNBC and CNN. We are determined to hold them and their stockholders responsible for the outrageous attacks on conservatives, both personally and professionally who work in the Media, as well as Republican nominated to serve the administration. Enough is enough. The airwaves belong to all of us, not just those with a liberal agenda,” MEP co-founder Melanie Morgan told Accuracy in Media.
The attacks by President Trump have stung the network with CNN President Jeff Zucker telling The New York Times a few weeks ago that Trump was trying to “bully” them and that he wasn’t going to allow him to intimidate his employees.
