Cities are engulfed in flames across the country.
Protests over the murder of George Floyd have gotten out of hand.
And CNN got caught spreading fake news about one disgusting violent protest.
The so-called mainstream media has been a horror show in the face of the George Floyd protests.
They’ve excused violent rioting and looting in the name of protest, but the peaceful protesters have largely gone home.
Instead of pointing out the violence, outlets like CNN have fanned the flames of outrage, although they took a break from hate-mongering in order to chastise rioters who attacked their headquarters in Atlanta.
The network has struggled in the ratings, so they’ve gone all in on perpetuating the chaos in the streets by refusing to condemn it.
And CNN’s Brian Stelter, the network’s so-called media watchdog, got busted spreading fake news about a violent protest.
St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., a historical landmark where Abraham Lincoln and other presidents attended service, was set on fire by violent rioters.
But Stelter, that bastion of truth, scolded a writer and video editor for The Daily Caller for pointing out the fact the church was on fire.
“You can see the church on your TV, right? No sign of smoke or fire at the church. Small fires across the street. Your tweet is going viral, and it’s not accurate.”
But the church was on fire, and Stelter was ultimately forced to delete the tweet and apologize.
And this is CNN’s media watchdog.
Instead of doing five minutes of research, he chided a conservative publicly because the narrative was more important than the truth.
This has been the type of reporting that has become customary from big media, particularly in the Trump era where liberal outlets are determined to take down Trump with every single story.
Arson at St. John’s is just the latest beating churchgoers have had to endure.
The coronavirus lockdowns barred parishioners from congregating at their local church.
The fire also reminded people of the mysterious fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris that went unsolved.
Tensions are running high, so it’s more important than ever for the press to be accurate in their reportage.
But the corporate press has shirked its responsibilities in order to be a full-throated #Resistance wing of the Democrat Party.
The same press that was vilifying non-violent protesters, who desperately wanted the country to open back up as data showed the coronavirus wasn’t nearly as lethal as originally thought, is now seemingly unconcerned about the Wuhan virus.
The press ran stories with incendiary headlines like “Georgia’s Experiment in Human Sacrifice.”
Now they’re silent on the virus because violent riots are better ratings boosters and better political cudgels.
The violence will only escalate unless the corporate press does the responsible thing and denounces the rioting and looting without qualification.
Thus far, they’ve refused to do it, and the consequences are devastating.
