Nice pun. I like it. I have to take everything they say with a grain a salt, or two, as well. You wonder what their angle is? You know?

I refer to you that link. That link is from a third party news site, that has embedded a CNN video. This video was posted on the tenth, or 11th by CNN. I looked for that video on CNN's web site. I couldn't find it. It's buried somewhere deep in their site. If it's still on their web site, they hid it good.


CNN choosing to not headline a single protestor calling for violence does not support a claim that CNN would headline and write multiple articles on a single Trump protestor doing the same.

If it were a public figure telling Hillary supporters to do something like 'grab their muskets', then yeah I'd wonder why they weren't making a big deal about that. But a single random off the street? Big deal.

Fox News and MSNBC make it pretty clear what their angles are. They make thin references to journalism while heavily editorializing in light of their respective party support.

CNN and most other major news outlets tend to lean left, but keep their editorials clearly separate from their news coverage.

CNN spent airtime and wrote multiple articles to cover how 'Pepe the Frog' is a evil Trump-Nazi meme. They cover an internet meme but refuse to air again an illegal calling for dead bodies and say that that is wrong.

They are biased lying press like every other outlet.

How dare CNN report on an internet meme that briefly had mention in political discourse and not report on an unsubstantiated internet rumor as well. That's not equivalent of CNN headlinging a civilian level Trump supporter calling for violence.

CNN are saint compared to WP. they just tried to push the blame that Hillary received questions beforehand to Trump (1) (this is not to mention the several accusatory articles against trump. some without evidence. they literally said Trump would cause a WW3 and end humanity (2).) maybe (thankfully) they seem to be giving up - one of their recent articles is about a ticklish rat (3)

I misread the dead bodies thing as an obtuse reference to dead people voting.

An internet meme hijacked by alt-right 4-chaners and mentioned by a presidential candidate is not somehow equivalent to a random on the street calling for violence, in terms of headline material. Unless you're looking for another internet meme to demonize the left I suppose.

The dead people being registered to vote is real, several people have been arrested for it, mostly poll workers.

And no. Just because the media has brainwashed you into thinking a cartoon frog is more important than a likely illegal alien screaming for corpses and blood because of the election results doesn't mean it actually is.

Yeah, clearly I'm brainwashed to not see how important a single 'scary' protester is more important than a brief coverage of the alt-right cranking out racist memes using a cartoon frog.

I can't find it on CNN's web site. I can't find that video report on their own website, and it's their report. Why did they hide it? Does it not fit with the narrative they want to build? That the protests are principled, and that it's all Donald's fault?

They're still one sided, it seems.


I believe you are looking for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rn6EVXdg7U

There have been dozens of reposts of various edits. Though I get the sentiment, now that what they showed on their news channel is happening large scale, they are pretending it's not their fault and covering it up (as usual, worst cover up ever).

How about the protestors throwing rocks at the police? How about the protestors that are shooting each other in Portland? How about the ones arrested with molotov cocktails?

protesters blocking traffic and burning cars / breaking store windows:

>damage to infrastructure (poor store owners will have to coup with the cost of replacing the windows, even though they did nothing to deserve it. heck, they might actually have opposed Trump)
>prevents people from getting to work, possibly getting some of them fired, losing their only livelihood
>making firefighters waste water to combat the fire. Cali is in severe draught, so those holes made them use an already scarce resource.


cartoon frog with racist meme:
>feelings getting hurt
