#SayHisName Trends on Twitter After Scant Media Coverage of Shooting Death of 5 Year Old Boy

#SayHisName trended on Twitter after mainstream media outlets have seemed to ignore the stunning shooting death of 5 year old North Carolina boy Cannon Hinnant by 25-year-old Darius Sessoms.

Some believe that the reason the stunning story has not been covered is because the 5 year old boy is white and his alleged killer is black.

Had the races been reversed, some believe the mainstream media would likely be covering the story as yet another George Floyd, Breanna Taylor “BLM” story.

DailyWire reported that “CNNNBCCBSABC, and MSNBC, as of Thursday morning, have yet to cover the attack. Fox News has covered the tragic news.”

Say his name. 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood while riding his bike. The accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters. Reverse the races and this is the only thing anyone talks about for a month

Cannon is from Wilson NC and he was shot by his neighbor in the head execution-style. Little Cannon is 5yrs old and was riding his bike with his siblings nearby when the neighbor just walks up and puts the gun to the little boy’s head.#SayHisName #JusticeForCannonHinnant

Have any mainstream media outlets covered Cannon Hinnant yet?

The deception in selective reporting is their most potent weapon because it drives availability bias which, in turn, distorts reality. It is the same as lying.

Just imagine if the races were reversed. #SayHisName

So Alyssa would post a video that is years old a few hours ago…but nothing on this 5 year old boy being brutally murdered a few hours ago… #SayHisName
