CNN on Friday finally “close[d] the loop” on its obsessive coverage of a white box truck that blocked the network’s view of President Trump golfing earlier this week.
A reporter for the network confirmed that the truck had license plates that showed it belongs to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.

Mike Magnoli, a reporter with CBS’s West Palm Beach affiliate, tracked down the truck. He reported that the vehicle belonged to the sheriff’s department but that it was not intended to block reporters’ views of Trump golfing at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
The finding settles a story that CNN has pursued since Wednesday, when the mystery truck pulled up in front of its live shot of Trump’s golf outing.
