CNN appears to have been caught on camera staging a fake Muslim protest against the London Bridge terrorist attack.
In footage posted by Rebel Media contributor Caolan Robertson, people who appear to be CNN staff are seen directing the “protesters” on where to stand in front of the camera — posing the demonstrators behind CNN Abu Dhabi Managing Editor Becky Anderson.
A witness to the filming alleged on Twitter that BBC had attempted to also film the “protest,” but were not allowed.
CNN host Brian Stelter denied that his network had staged the shot, tweeting “Far-right twitterers are misleading folks about this video. Bloggers saying CNN was caught ‘staging fake new. Police allowed demonstrators thru cordon ‘so they could show their signs’ to media,
@CNNPR says. CNN, BBC, AP ‘simply filmed them doing so.'”
Stelter’s claim was rapidly called out by other members of the media.
The left-wing website Mediaite defended CNN’s actions, while not denying that the staging took place.
“While the editorial decisions here are up for debate, arranging crowds for background perspective is not uncommon in news shots, and CNN insists that the Muslim crowd was already nearby before they ended up in front of the cameras,” the website reported.
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks on Saturday evening that left seven dead and 41 injured. Currently, 21 victims remain in critical condition.
“A detachment of Islamic State fighters executed yesterday’s London attack,” a statement posted to the Amaq media agency, an ISIS website, read.
Following the attack, many liberals on Twitter skipped right over expressing remorse for the victims who lost their lives — instead expressing support for the Muslims that they worry may face “Islamophobia” in the wake of yet another Islamic terrorist mass killing strangers.
Just minutes after the news broke, former British MP Louise Mensch tweeted, “My dear Muslim brothers and sisters in the UK, I stand with you tonight and every night in friendship and patriotism,” tagging the tweet with #LondonBridge. She was immediately met with outcry from both the right and the left demanding to know if she also happens to stand with those who were injured or lost their lives or loved ones.
The London Bridge attack came on the eve of an Ariana Grande concert to benefit the victims of the massacre in Manchester on May 22. During her concert, an Islamic terrorist had detonated a suicide bomb filled with shrapnel at the exit of her show, killing 22 people — including children. An additional 119 people were injured, 23 critically.
Mandalorian Co-Star Bill Burr Slams Cancellation of Gina Carano: “F****** Crazy Time”
Carano’s castmate spoke against Disney’s purge of Carano.
Comedian and actor Bill Burr slammed Disney for betraying ‘Mandalorian’ actress Gina Carano late last month, likening the leftist purge as “f***** crazy time.”
Carano was fired by Disney from the Mandalorian for voicing opposition to left-wing tyranny on her personal instagram. Carano had compared left-wing cancel culture mobs to street thuggery seen in Nazi Germany, in which members of the Nazi SA enacted terror campaigns targeting their political opponents.
Burr also described Carano, a former MMA fighter, as the model castmate. Burr had appeared in season 1 of the Mandalorian, a show which some had pointed to as the most creative title to be produced in Disney’s Star Wars productions. With the show thoroughly established as a left-wing project in the aftermath of Carano’s firing, it’s likely the production will go downhill.
“I’m on that f—-ing show. Now I gotta watch what the f—- I say,” said Burr on Joe DeRosa’s comedy podcast Feb. 24. “She was an absolute sweetheart. Super-nice f—-ing person and, you know, whatever.”
Burr went on to liken the online mob that had demanded Disney fire Carano to paranoid stalkers.
“There’s people just waiting, just laying in the weeds. … How about you just be an individual, and you continue to buy tickets to people who you wanna go see?”
Unfortunately, Burr, a longtime friend of chimpanzee enthusiast and podcaster Joe Rogan, may have placed himself next on the chopping block for mobs of left-wing crybabies demanding that actors and public figures be purged from the liberal entertainment industry.
