CNN widely ridiculed for “mostly peaceful” caption in front of burning building

SHARE

The mainstream media is continuing to push the “peaceful protest” narrative, even while cities such as Kenosha burn by way of enraged anarchists.

CNN is currently being criticized for describing the city pillaging as a  “FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING,” posting the chryon to appear on screen as Omar Jimenez stood in front of a fire-licked urban landscape.

“What you’re seeing behind me is one of multiple locations that have been burning in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the course of the night,” Jimenez said, sporting a respirator.

According to the New York Post, Jimenez ultimately attempted to dismiss the riots as “peaceful.”

“It wasn’t until night fell that things began to get a little bit more contentious. Things were thrown back and forth. Police started using some of those crowd dispersal tactics like tear gas, even playing very loud sounds to push them out,” Jimenez said.

The coverage was lambasted by individuals on Twitter, including Eric Trump.

The riots were kicked off by the non-fatal shooting of Jacob Blake, a repeat offender who -while armed with a knife- attempted to flee police after engaging with them.
