(PresidentialWire.com)- We all know by now that CNN isn’t interested in telling the truth, but over the last few years, the outlet’s reporting has gone from inaccurate to plain propaganda. A recent report on the violent riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, from CNN suggested that they were “mostly peaceful” despite the reporter standing in front of a literal fire.
Many assumed the footage was parody before realizing it was a real report from the far-left news network. It occurred on Tuesday evening as yet another night of violence broke out in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting. The chyron at the bottom of the screen said that protests were “fiery but mostly peaceful” and the anchor can be seen wearing protective gear in front of a massive fire.
Take a look for yourself.
You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN’s chyron reads:

The claim was just so insane that Twitter users from the left and the right started editing the footage and turning it into various memes. James Lindsay, a left-wing academic who co-authored a book about wokeness called “Cynical Theories” published a meme depicting the sinking of an ocean liner, with a chyron that reads, “Ocean liner’s first voyage mostly successful.”

Who in CNN signed off on that chyron?
Lindsay posted another one, showing images of cars crashing into a broken bridge, with a chyron that reads, “Issues arise in mostly structurally sound bridge.”
At some point, people have to start realizing that CNN isn’t a news outlet, right? November will be an excellent test of that. Lots of polls show Biden ahead, but with so many people tuning into CNN only to see news anchors claim to not see the violent extremism right in front of them, it’s surely only a matter of time before people start voting and thinking differently.
