One of the organizers -- Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the Tea Party activist group Main Street Patriots -- said her group was outside CNN a month ago and would be back in August and September.
“We’re going to keep on holding them accountable,” Dooley said.
She said the demonstration was not necessarily to show support for Trump but to call attention to what they see as “biased” coverage of the president, the investigation into Russia’s meddling in last year’s elections and Trump’s policies.
"We're here to tell CNN no more fake news," said another organizer, Melanie Morgan of the Media Equality Project. "They have to know people who are here expect fairness in journalism."
She had a list of people CNN has allegedly wronged, — including former Trump aide Monica Crowley and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
Also, they cited stories they think were unfair, like tracking down of the Reddit user who created a wrestling GIF that the President retweeted, and the Russian collusion story that CNN retracted and which resulted in some CNN employees resigning.
CNN spokeswoman Bridget Leininger declined to comment on the protest.
