AWKWARD: CNN tries to display what NYC killer said – without actually saying it

Powered by Topple

As usual, it took a long time for the mainstream media to finally acknowledge that Tuesday’s Lower Manhattan truck attack by 29-year-old Uzbeki immigrant Sayfullo Saipov was actually a terrorist attack and not some random, crazed ‘lone wolf.’

You’d think the fact that multiple witnesses heard the killer shout “Allahu Akbar” might have been a clue, but apparently admitting the obvious has become a ‘hate-fact,’ or something.

Given that, CNN had quite the creative way around this predicament.

Here’s the original tweet from The Situation Room:

Smooth move, CNN. Sadly for you, nobody’s buying it and everyone knows exactly what you were trying to do.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the brouhaha by downplaying his network’s downplay:

But nobody was buying that either.
