CNN Bias as usual

Blue Lives Matter, a law enforcement group, is charging CNN (aka Communist News Network) of editing video of the racially charged shooting of a Charlotte, NC man in order to make the police look like racist murderers. 

It used to be the networks reported the news, now they make it.

The organization is made up of active and retired law enforcement officers. They claim CNN edited video of the September 20th fatal shooting of Keith Scott, editing out the video in which the police repeatedly ordered Scott to "drop the gun." Of course, this poured gasoline on the anarchists' fires where they claim Scott didn't have a gun, but had a book when fatally shot by Officer Brentley Vinson.

Vinson is black but that didn't stop the anarchists from claiming racism was the motivation for the shooting. It doesn't matter the color of the cop, only the color of the victim when shot by a cop. It doesn't even matter when a black thug shoots a black child in, say, Chicago. If it doesn't fit their tiny-minded agenda, it simply doesn't matter to the hypocrites.

"The editing was clearly intended to give viewers the impression that Scott wasn't armed. By intentionally excluding information to promote the false narrative that the officer-involved shooting of Keith Scott was unjustified, CNN directly contributed towards inciting violence and destruction in the Charlotte riots," Blue Lives Matter said in a statement. "Innocent citizens were hurt during the Charlotte riots, but editing like this also incites violence against police officers long after the riots are over."

The video in question was taken by Scott's widow, Rakeyia Scott. You can hear her telling the police, "He has no weapon." That's what CNN viewers heard. What they didn't hear was the police yelling at Scott to drop his gun, which was found at the crime scene.

Police later released video showing Scott in his SUV rolling a joint, getting out of the vehicle and backing away from police as they had their guns drawn and assumed the shooting position. The video is grainy and we can't see if there was a gun in his hand, but police recovered a stolen, loaded handgun at the scene and revealed that Scott was wearing an ankle holster.

The full, unedited video includes a cop shouting, "Gun. Gun. Drop the gun."

Rakeyia Scott yells, "Don't shoot him. Don't shoot him. He didn't do anything." Police continue yelling for him to drop the gun at least 12 times in 38 seconds.

The edited video, Blue Lives Matter claims, helped create the false impression that the police acted with unnecessary force and it may have played a role in the rioting [along with George Soros, I bet].

"There are consequences to editing video like this, and it may cost more officers their lives," Blue Lives Matter said.

But the network is no stranger to the editor's cut. In August, they were accused of editing comments from the sister of a black man, Sylville Smith, killed by a black police officer in Milwaukee. Smith was ordered to put down his gun and he refused. 

The incident touched off riots, as usual.

CNN made it appear the sister, Sherelle, was calling for peace. She was quoted as calling for an end to violence "in the city." But CNN left out what came after that statement: a call for protesters to burn down the suburbs.

CNN's so-called 'correspondent' Anna Cabrera, tweeted an apology for the edit. "We short-handed sister's quote. Unintentionally gave the impression she was calling for peace everywhere. Correction."

Four people on Twitter read that tweet.

CNN isn't in the habit of apologizing on air as there may be over 1,000 viewers who see it.

You can see why the public no longer trusts journalists and the media.
