CNN’s ubiquitous presence in airports is a source of aggravation for many travelers, especially those who disagree with the network’s coverage of the Trump administration and those who’d prefer a quieter environment while waiting for their planes. This bill would use grant money to entice airports to stop signing contracts with CNN Airport News.
While CNN is imperfect, it’s a major U.S. news network. Additionally, the hefty contracts that CNN Airport News signs with airports — which are in the six digits annually — are an important revenue source for airports, which may struggle to make ends without this money.
