CNN - media bias

| No Comments

The riots in Milwaukee have not been reported very accurately. Everyone from BLM to major media outlets have filtered the actual events through their agenda.

The narrative is that a police officer shot and killed an innocent black youth. Example - from the Huffington Post:

23-Year-Old Black Man Killed By Milwaukee Police Officer Is Identified
Milwaukee police on Sunday identified 23-year-old Sylville K. Smith as the man fatally shot by a Milwaukee officer Saturday afternoon following a traffic stop.

Smith’s shooting death sparked hours of violent unrest in the Sherman Park neighborhood on the north side of the city, including vandalism, eyewitness reports of shots fired toward police vehicles, six businesses being set on fire and 17 arrests.

Not being mentioned is the fact that Smith had a long record and was pointing a gun at the black Police Officer who shot him in self defense. From Blue Lives Matter:

Bodycam Shows Black Milwaukee Officer Shot Suspect, Sylville Smith, Who Was Raising Gun
An officer-involved shooting on Saturday afternoon prompted a massive riot in Milwaukee. Word about the shooting quickly spread on social media about a white officer who shot a black man in the back while running away. It is no surprise that the information that was spread by agitators on social media was entirely false.

The officer involved in the shooting was a black police officer, and he had his body camera on at the time of the shooting. The suspect, Sylville Smith, 23, was indeed black, but he wasn’t shot while just running away.

After reviewing the shooting footage, Milwaukee Chief Edward Flynn said, “The individual did turn toward the officer with a firearm in his hand.” Chief Flynn added that Smith was “raising up with” the gun at the time that he was shot by the officer.

The initial stop occurred at around 3:30 PM on Saturday when Milwaukee police officers conducted a traffic stop on a suspicious vehicle. After the car stopped, at least two of the vehicle’s occupants, including Smith, fled on foot.

An unidentified 24-year-old black male officer chased after Smith. During the chase, Smith pulled out a stolen pistol that was fully loaded with stolen ammunition, and Smith raised the pistol to the officer. The officer ordered Smith to drop the gun and shot when he did not comply.

This image shows CNN's level of bias:

That is some really serious journalism there. I'm going to take everything you say at face value. (SET SARC=OFF) These people are so far in the tank for the progressive hive-mind that they can not see it. Clueless and out of touch.
