ROTHSCHILD — Guests at one local hotel who switch on the TV in search of the latest news no longer have CNN as an option.
The Stoney Creek Inn, 1100 Imperial Ave., in Rothschild has dropped the 24-hour news channels CNN and CNN Headline News from its basic cable offerings.
Tony Magro, 76, of Barrington, Ill., stayed at the inn Monday night and said he was told by a receptionist that the hotel chain’s corporate office had issued a letter calling for the removal of the channels because CNN aids terrorists.
“I’m not an activist, and I really don’t have any interest, but that struck me as over the top,” Magro said. “I’m rather zealous about my rights as an American citizen, particularly when I’m paying for the service.”
I partially agree; it’s not a “right” to watch CNN, but dropping it from the hotel’s cable is a little over the top.
But only a little, because the hotel’s corporate office is right. CNN is aiding terrorists.
