CNN reporter pretends protesters are not yelling at cops at NYC memorial

There’s nothing like reporting on peaceful conditions during the NYPD memorial coverage and actually hearing residents yelling in the background against that narrative.

CNN Correspondent, Sara Ganim, said most of the people who had showed up were calm and paying their respects to the officers,  amid the noticeable disturbance in the background.

“I do, just in full disclosure, want to say that in the last couple of minutes, for the first time today, we’ve seen protesters come out here and start yelling at groups of police who are mourning their slain police officers.”

Ganim continued “it’s just a few of them, Suzanne, and like I said, just in the last five minutes, and they’re quite frankly yelling at a group of police officers who are standing here silently, just looking at the memorial of candles and flowers and posters, and they’re yelling similar rhetoric that we’ve been hearing over the last couple of weeks related to the shooting of — the chokehold death of Eric Garner and the shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri.”
