Published

A pair of CNN hacks shared an image Monday that allegedly depicted Tunisian citizens protesting a visit from Saudi Arabian government officials which turned out to be photoshopped.

“The [sic] IS the shot of the day as Tunisians, who managed to preserve their revolution against tyranny, protest the upcoming visit of #Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. #Khashggi #Tunisia” CNN war correspondent Ben Wedeman said, sharing a photo of Tunisian man holding a chainsaw in a crowd of protestors.

Wedeman shared the fake photo with his 126,000 followers before CNN’s Jim Sciutto piled on.

“Wow,” he said, spreading the fake news to his 280,000 followers.

Shortly thereafter, a Twitter user called “samarkand” shared the real image, and alerted the esteemed purveyors of information over at CNN that their version was a fake.

“As much as I loathe Saudi Arabia’s government, it does appear that this is a photoshopped image, cased on one that tineye.com finds appearing as early as January, 14, 2011,” the user said. “(If you zoom in on yours, you’ll see hoe the hand blurs under the chainsaw.)”

Turns out, this was actually the photo of seven years ago – not the “photo of the day,” as Wedeman claimed. The Tunisian in the original photo appears to be holding a bird house. Hat tip to Fox’s Stephen Miller, who compiled the three images in a Tweet.

CNN really wanted to forward the narrative that Americans should be outraged over the death of a Muslim Brotherhood operative, and that we, too, should demand action against Saudi Arabia. Successfully conveying that narrative would make President Donald J. Trump, who has refused to go to war with Saudi Arabia over a the death of a terrorist. Jamal Khashoggi, a known Muslim Brotherhood-linked Washington Post columnist was murdered by the Saudi Arabian government.

“Deleted tweet about Tunis protest,” Wedeman later Tweeted. “Turns out it was fake.”

“Deleted my RT as well,” Sciutto replied.

“Turns out it was fake” would make an apt slogan for the fine folks over at CNN.

In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.

Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”

Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
