CNN apparently is “fake news.” Not only does the leftist cable network distort its coverage, but it apparently makes up “news” to promote its agenda.
That’s what London-based citizen journalist Mark Antro claimed in a series of tweets that showed CNN reporter Becky Anderson and her crew staging an anti-ISIS protest by Muslims one day after the London Bridge terrorist attacks.
In the behind-the-scenes video, Anderson and her crew are seen coaching hijab-wearing Muslim women where to stand and how to hold their phony anti-ISIS protest signs.
If you didn’t know this was supposed to be “news,” you’d think you were watching a commercial or a movie being filmed.
CNN presumably shot the propaganda video to push its narrative that most Muslims oppose ISIS. The only problem is, CNN and other mainstream media then tried to pass off the staged protest as a legitimate demonstration.
In tweets that have since been deleted, Mark Antro narrated how the staged protest played out. At one point, Antro said a BBC news crew tried to horn in on the action and film the phony scene, but CNN shooed them away.
Anton also said the on-set “director” replaced white police officers with Arab-looking ones because it better suited CNN’s pro-Muslim narrative.
Note the white police officers leaving before the CNN shot & the Asian officers coming in. They then left after they went off air!

The Associated Press later used CNN’s propaganda photo to shill a news story, but cropped out the CNN crew to make the demonstration look real.

A London TV viewer tweeted that he saw footage of the staged protest on a BBC broadcast later that day.
It was on the BBC1 News just before the Manchester concert, I took a pic as I couldn’t believe it. Hope that helps. pic.twitter.com/rJLUZfUWXZ

Mark Antro wrote a disclaimer on Twitter letting people know that if he suddenly turned up dead (like Seth Rich), it wasn’t by his own hand.
Meanwhile, the reaction to CNN’s fake news propaganda was swift and intense.
This is outrageous. Propaganda. Choreography by "news" channels. https://t.co/2hSsmVqgov

BBC refuses to air tape of terrorists saying "this if for Allah".
CNN stages Muslim anti-ISIS protest.
We are being conned.

CNN denied the protest was staged. But the phony behind-the-scenes footage is damning, so who are they fooling?
This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs. CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so.

CNN media hack Brian Stelter also defended his employer, telling us we shouldn’t believe what we saw with our own eyes.
Police allowed demonstrators thru cordon "so they could show their signs" to media, @CNNPR says. CNN, BBC, AP "simply filmed them doing so."

Not surprisingly, most people did not believe him.
Brian, CNN did not record what’s happening. @BeckyCNN shaped what will happen and then started a report. Not bad; just a fact.
