CNN Quietly Changes Headline After Internet Teaches Them When ICE Was Founded

Published

on

CNN was forced to change an embarrassingly incorrect headline after learning from internet users that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was founded two years later than they claimed.

“This year saw the most people in ICE detention since 2001,” read a headline from a Monday CNN piece.

Internet users quickly taught CNN that ICE was not founded until 2003.

“This is CNN,” said Twitter user Ben McDonald, juxtaposing the headline with a Google search showing that ICE was founded in 2003.

“ICE didn’t even exist until March 1, 2003,” reporter Ryan Saavedra said.

Even the updated article still makes the claim that ICE was collecting data as far back as 2001. How does an organization that does not exist gather information?

“ICE held an average of more than 42,000 people in custody each day throughout fiscal year 2018. The previous record high since ICE began tracking the data in 2001 was just over 38,000 last year,” the article said.

The network also had to update the story after failing to properly give credit to Daily Beast, who apparently reported the statistics first.

“UPDATE: This story has been updated to credit The Daily Beast with first reporting the statistics,” the last line of the piece said.

Just another day at the Cable News Network.

CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant

How on earth does this man have his own TV show?

Published

On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.

In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:

“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.

Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”

“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”

Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”

Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.

Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.

Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.

Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
