CNN has finally broken its silence on the riots in Washington State and Oregon – and elsewhere. After ignoring (censoring) the window-breaking, fire-starting, road-blocking anti-American insurrectionist rioting – including an armed attack on the headquarters of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) federal law enforcement agency — CNN myopically focused on one event.
The report was headlined “police car rams protestors in Tacoma.” Yep! After days and days of destructive rioting and attacks on federal property, CNN was able to find a minor incident that they could spin into an anti-police story.
Using one of the classic techniques of propaganda, CNN anchors told us what we were going to see to prejudice the minds – and that it was a “very disturbing” video. If you do not view the video objectively and critically – and if you are gullible or susceptible to left-wing propaganda – you may actually believe that a police car “rammed” a group of “protestors.”
That is not what happened. What the video actually showed was a police car slowing and methodically moving – in stops and starts – through a group of RIOTERS (not protestors) who were ILLEGALLY BLOCKING THE STREET and ATTACKING THE POLICE CAR. Yes, ATTACKING the police car.
The rioters were pushed aside, and the police car moved on. There were no bodies lying on the street. No major injuries – if any at all. And yet the producers over at CNN saw this as a major news event while making no reference to all the multi-city rioting that preceded, surrounded and succeeded the relatively insignificant police car incident.
What CNN did was an outrageous example of propaganda designed to mislead the public.
No … more than mislead. Their intent was to incite hostility toward America’s police as part of the left’s larger anti-law enforcement narratives.
It is important to keep in mind that this is the same news outlet that ignored the attack on the ICE headquarters – an attack on our federal government. The riot at the capital is exaggerated as an attempted coup – and given hours and hours of ongoing airtime and reams of print coverage. But an attack on a federal agency commissioned to find and arrest heinous criminals who entered America illegally is not even worth a mention.
This came a day after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Biden’s response to the rioting on the west coast by folks who hate him almost as much as they hate Trump – and she said that she did not know because … ready for this? … they had not discussed the matter.
Now, either Psaki is lying … or someone is controlling the information Biden receives and does not receive … or the President is part of the strategy (conspiracy?) of protecting the left by censoring the news. For whatever reason Psaki dodged the question, it shows that the promised transparency, honesty and full disclosure is a bunch of political hooey.
If you harbor any hope that the news coverage might become fairer and more professional after Trump, think again. The left’s hatred is not limited to Trump but extends to half of America who did not vote for Biden. The devotion to left-wing propaganda by much of our media is getting worse. The only thing that has changed is that the Fourth Estate now stands in uncritical adoration of the person in the Oval Office.
So, there ‘tis.
