Against the backdrop of Kenosha, Wisc., in flames, CNN still insists that the protests are “mostly peaceful.”
Underneath an on-the-scene report amidst the chaos from CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez, the so-called worldwide leader in news (alternatively “the most trusted name in news”) ran a chyron that read in what might be an unintentional pun that “fiery but most peaceful protests after police shooting.”
Despite what in-denial studio producers claimed in the labeling, Jimenez pointed out in the video clip embedded below that behind him was one of multiple locations in Kenosha that were on fire.
In the daytime, he added, protests were “largely peaceful,” but that after it got dark, “things began to get a little bit more contentious.” He asserted that the events reflected the “anger and frustration” about what’s been playing out across the country between the police and citizenry.

Blake is hospitalized in serious condition and is paralyzed. An investigation by several law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin is ongoing.
The Kenosha unrest has also left two protesters dead after they were shot and killed by an alleged vigilante, who authorities have charged with murder. Another man was wounded in the incident.
As exemplified by CNN or similar news outlets, the liberal media has generally adopted the mostly peaceful mantra to describe demonstrations against police brutality that have devolved into rioting, looting, assaults, and arson during the overnight hours in U.S. cities.
Democrats run most, if not all, of the locales such as Minneapolis and Atlanta where police misconduct has recently occurred.
Kenosha’s longtime mayor, moreover, is a Democrat.
After first turning him down, Wisconsin’s Democrat Gov. Tony Evers has accepted President Trump’s offer of more National Guard troops to restore order in the city.
It is fundamentally unclear how agitators destroying the property owned by innocent citizens and business owners or engaging in general lawlessness or anarchy addresses the police misconduct issue.
Twitter reacted to the fake-news chyron presented by CNN. Here is a sample:
If they’re lying to you when it’s this obvious, think of all the other things they are misrepresenting to protect a narrative.

Nothing says peaceful like rioting, looting and arson.
CNN should just turn in their journalistic credentials, it’s become parody now.

Hard to find a dialogue and solutions when you have MSM gaslighting. They’re willfully ignorant when something doesn’t fit their narrative and hyperbole to make things fit their narrative. It creates divisions and fear, people don’t really know what is going on or has happened.

Mostly peaceful = I haven’t been hit by a brick yet

LOL “Fiery…peaceful” ???😂 the justification, bias and level of disconnect/denial just never fails to amaze me. 😆. Got it! One must not let one’s lying eyes, burning fires and all around violent chaos lead to falsehoods 😝

Can’t believe there are some people who might actually believe in this sort of crap. @CNN you’re downgrading yourselves each day more
