CNN’s New Mexico extremist compound headline has folks struggling in disbelief

Only on CNN can you find an interpretation of 11 severely malnourished children found at the New Mexico compound, along with a buried child who did not survive, as a family struggling with life off the grid.

Keeping in mind that prosecutors said the children were being trained to shoot up schools by the Muslim extremists at the compound.

“New Mexico compound family struggled with life off the grid,” CNN declared in a tweet Sunday.

In effect, CNN shifted the entire story away from a Muslim extremist camp being use to train future terrorists into a full length feature about living off the grid, conjuring up images of hippies in the 60’s turning on and tuning out.

Readers are told that “apart from their dirty clothes and skin color,” little about the black Muslim family stood out.

“Otherwise, those who met them said they seemed friendly. A resident recalled how one of the men tenderly wiped the nose of a crying child,” the article reads.


The reaction online was one of anger and disbelief… here’s a sampling from Twitter:
