A former ABC News viewer and Trump supporter in Texas took out a billboard that slams ABC News for pushing the fake news Russia story.
The Blaze reports:
A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and a longtime member of ABC News’ audience purchased a billboard in Texas to deliver a message to the influential television network: “We are through.”
The billboard was purchased in June by Texas businessman Kyle Courtney, who says ABC News’ biased coverage of the alleged connection between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government has driven him away from the network forever.
“ABC News: I grew up with you. We are through. The Russians didn’t elect Donald Trump. I did,” the billboard reads, according to MySanAntonio.com.

“Why did you want to put that billboard up?” asked “Fox & Friends” co-host Abby Huntsman.
“I just watched too much misinformation, and I’ve been around awhile and I think I know the truth when I see it, and I think I know when someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes,” Courtney said.
Courtney also told “Fox & Friends” he believes the American news media has lost touch with everyday people.
“I don’t know where [the mainstream media] get their information,” Courtney said. “It’s as if they never leave New York City. But there’s a lot of America out here. There are a lot of people who we don’t feel like they represent us.”
