CNN created an online campaign to bombard conservative broadcast company Sinclair over an interview it was scheduled to broadcast with Dr Judy Mikovits, the author and creator of the 'Plandemic' film and book, and it worked as Sinclair eventually agreed to pull the interview.
Mikovits, who contends that the Coronavirus outbreak is being inflated and used to push vaccines on people, had already filmed the interview with 'America This Week' host Eric Bolling, but the interview did not air this weekend as planned.
Despite the interview also featuring a doctor who refutes Mikovits' claims, CNN complained that it didn't push back hard enough.
Leftists on Twitter then made it their mission to get Sinclair to drop the broadcast.
Initially, Sinclair refused to do so declaring that "at no juncture are we aligning with or endorsing the viewpoints of Dr Mikovits."
But just hours later the broadcaster had completely capitulated to the censorship mob:
We also interviewed a medical expert who debunked Dr. Mikovitz's claims as conspiracy theories. We're a supporter of free speech and a marketplace of ideas and viewpoints, even if incredibly controversial.
