CNN Mocked for Chyron Calling Protests “Mostly Peaceful” While Building Burns

CNN became the subject of mockery and ridicule Tuesday when they ran a Chyron that claimed protests in Wisconsin were “mostly peaceful” while reporter Omar Jimenez stood in front of a building that was being burned down.

Jimenez offered a somewhat sympathetic tone towards the rioters who had clearly committed criminal arson, saying “What you are seeing, the common theme that ties all of this together, is an expression of anger and frustration over what people feel like what has become an all too familiar story.”

Caleb Hull wrote “You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN’s chyron reads: FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING””

Ian Miles Cheong “This is CNN”

 

“I thought this was disinformation when I saw the screenshots; It’s not….MSM is a parody of itself.

“This is a real CNN clip.”

Look peaceful to you?
