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.

President Trump Takes Down Chinese State Media Reporter: “Who Do You Work For, China?”

The reporter works for a company all-but controlled by the Chinese government.

President Donald Trump correctly questioned if a reporter promoting the supposed efforts of Chinese companies to provide needed coronavirus supplies was working for a Chinese-government controlled media company at Monday’s press conference.

Youyou Wang asked a question that was phrased as more of a statement, describing the humanitarian efforts of Chinese companies Huawei and Alibaba as a potential motive for the United States to rescind trade restrictions on China in the wake of the epidemic.

Watch the exchange here:

Who are you working for, China? Do you work for China, or do you work for a newspaper? Who are you with?

Youyou Wang stated that she works for a privately owned media company, but scrutiny of Hong Kong Phoenix TV reveals that it’s closely linked to the Chinese government. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, 37.1% of the company’s parent, Phoenix Satellite Holdings, is owned by a former Colonel for China’s state propaganda TV channel. Another 20% of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company called China Mobile.

Mainstream media operatives immediately pivoted to paint Trump’s wholly reasonable inquiry to the nature of Wang’s media company as somehow prejudiced, claiming that it was inappropriate that Trump question the motives of someone who was trying to defend China’s major corporations and government in the midst of the pandemic.

His suspicions appear to have been validated, considering no more than 65% of the company is owned by individuals and entities with demonstrable connections to the Chinese government. Many of China’s nominally ‘private’ companies are essentially owned by the nation’s authoritarian government and work tirelessly to advance its interests.
