PAW Patrol Have Not Been Cancelled
On Friday 24th July, the White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany during a Press briefing at the White House made numerous claims regarding some shows which are being cancelled all over America and how President Trump isn’t a fan of these developments.
One of the shows which McEnany said had been cancelled is Nickelodeon’ CGI animated series, PAW Patrol. In the press briefing, McEnany had said, ‘We saw a few weeks ago that PAW Patrol, a cartoon show about cops was cancelled. The show, Cops was cancelled, Live PD was cancelled’. The series which has been airing since 2013 is very popular with kids all over the country, and, McEnany’s claim quickly led to a lot of concerns from fans of this show. However, facts have emerged that the Press Secretary has gotten her facts all wrong as it relates to this show. Here is why.
A few hours after the press briefing at the White House, PAW Patrol had released a short and concise tweet on their official Twitter account. The tweet reads, ‘No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not cancelled.’ Several media houses, including BBC US and Canada has also debunked the claim on their websites.
USA Today also confirmed to have reached out to the Nickelodeon’s Executive Vice President on Corporate Communications, David Bittler, in a post on their website, and Mr. Bittler was said to have denied the claim.
Going by all the facts available, it’s clear to see that McEnany had not gotten her facts right, and this claim is misleading and false.
