According to a report, at 9:09 p.m. on Wednesday, CNN’s town hall event at Saint Anselm College featuring former President Donald Trump concluded, almost 69 minutes after it had begun. Although the town hall was scheduled until 9:30 p.m., numerous attendees complained that it stopped far sooner.
According to tweets posted by Puck’s Dylan Byers, the network had ceased the broadcast before 70 minutes, despite the fact that network officials could have continued the presentation if they chose to, if they wanted to maintain high ratings.
Over the last year, Byers has written extensively about CNN and the company’s newly appointed CEO Chris Licht, and his coverage has been mostly critical.
According to Mediaite, from the beginning, both the Trump campaign and CNN supported 60 Minutes. Earlier on Wednesday, the report’s author claimed he spoke with a senior network official about the cable TV program’s 90-minute length. He was informed that the event was scheduled to last an hour, but it was likely to go over that time by a few minutes, or a block. Indeed, it turned out to be the case.
On Wednesday, President Trump participated in a town hall interview with CNN.
He stood up to presenter Kaitlan Collins when she tried to harass him over J6, abortion, and Ukraine.
Trump remained true to his beliefs and successfully responded to “gotcha” questions from Collins while captivating the crowd.
According to media accounts, Collins’ terrible performance did not win over liberals watching TV or posting on social media, including AOC. Many others started becoming nervous that Trump would eventually win the Presidency again.
Trump’s social media followers, on the other hand, enjoyed the town hall and delighted in posting memes mocking CNN’s public shaming.
Hopefully, President Trump had as much fun with the carnage as his supporters did.
