CNN is living up to one of its monikers as the “Communist News Network” like never before.
Plagued with numerous incidences of open bias, and stealth editing, it looks like the network has taken deceitful journalism to a whole new level.
As BizPac reported over the weekend, the riots in Milwaukee over an armed black career criminal being shot by a black police officer, have escalated to a degree independent sources on the ground are saying exceeds racial tensions in Baltimore and Ferguson.
The sister of Sylville Smith, the man shot by police, has been a loud voice during the protests. That’s not to say, Sherelle Smith isn’t justified in her grief, and arguably justified in her anger over the circumstances much of America’s inner city black communities face, but the focus of her rage, is what is way off base.
Sherelle was caught on camera in an all-out epic rant condemning just about everything but the violence happening in the city, BizPac reported. When she did address the violence she said, “You all burning down gas stations. F**k that gas station!”
She wasn’t urging rioters to stop setting buildings on fire, and to quit looting businesses, but instead told them they need to redirect their rage and take it to the suburbs.
“Burning down sh*t ain’t going to help nothing! Y’all burning down sh*t we need in our community,” she said before adding the next crucial part. “Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down! We need our sh*t! We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”
Twitter user DeeconX was among the first to carry part of the video in context:

When CNN got around to covering Sherelle’s rant, the network edited out that oh-so-crucial part.
What was left was something that sounded a lot different as CNN’s Ana Cabrera reported the Smith family had come together in prayer, “with his sister calling for peace.”
Word of CNN’s edits have started to spread, and is not being taken lightly by those who desire truth. *Warning for strong language.

Even so, it is an uphill battle to be sure.
