CNN Camera Crew Attacked At BLM Protest

Protester Throws Water Bottle at CNN Crew Who Gets Mocked After Falling Down

As rioters gathered again Wednesday night to do their part in fighting police brutality by violently attacking innocent people, looting stores, and other acts completely unrelated to police brutality, the rioters assaulted CNN crew members and chased them away.

“Man part of CNN crew for CNN reporter @miguelmarquez was hit in the head by a protester at the #BLM protest in Brooklyn Center, Minn. He falls to the ground from assault,” Andy Ngo, a journalist who covers domestic terrorism, wrote on Twitter. He later reported, “CNN reporter @miguelmarquez & his crew were violently chased away from the #BLM protest in Brooklyn Center, Minn.”

The riot broke out Wednesday night, marking the fourth consecutive night of rioting after the shooting of Daunte Wright by a police officer. Rioters gathered around the Brooklyn Center police headquarters, leading to an assembly that was deemed unlawful. According to USA Today, “One video showed one protester carrying the head of a fake pig on a pole near a fence outside the heavily guarded station as police monitored the crowd from the structure’s rooftop.”

Police were forced to use rubber bullets to attempt to disperse the crowd, as the rioters threw objects at the officers.

 “That’ll add to the zip-tie bruises I got the other night,” a rioter who was hit by a bullet told USA Today, unintentionally illustrating the power of propaganda through his determination to riot.

The attack on CNN crew members comes less than a year after rioters protested police brutality by attacking CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, after the shooting of George Floyd in May 2020.

    BLM has bitten the hand that makes excuses for them.

    The Left always turns on itself, and it couldn’t happen to a worse “Propaganda” machine.

    These “people” are so stupid they don’t even recognize their best supporters. CNN deserved it, though.

    I can’t say I feel sorry for CNN. I hate, loathe and despise that race-baiting, Marxist network of conspiring leftists.

Chris Cuomo Forced Out Of SiriusXM After CNN Firing – Report

Published

Chris Cuomo

On Monday, ex-CNN host Chris Cuomo announced that he had resigned from his SiriusXM radio show just days after being fired from CNN over his deep involvement with the handling of sexual assault allegations against his brother ex-Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo.

“The way my time ended at CNN is hard,” he said in a statement. “While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So, right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next. That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there. I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my loyal listeners. I will miss our conversations a great deal – but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future.”

 

“Following Chris Cuomo’s statement that he is leaving his SiriusXM show, Let’s Get After It will no longer air. We thank Chris for his work at SiriusXM,” a SiriusXM spokesperson said in a statement.

According to the New York Post, a source said that Cuomo was “forced out” of Sirius after “a former female colleague at ABC News accused him of sexual misconduct.”

“Cuomo ‘really wanted’ to stay on Sirius but was told he needed to leave,” the New York Post reported, adding, “A source familiar with the matter said of Cuomo, ‘He was asked to resign, which he did.’”

CNN also reportedly learned of a new accusation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo, unrelated to his brother, that led CNN to take “immediate action.”
The New York Times
reported, “On Wednesday, Debra S. Katz, a prominent employment lawyer, informed CNN of a client with an allegation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo. Ms. Katz said in a statement on Saturday that the allegation against the anchor, which was made by a former junior colleague at another network, was ‘unrelated to the Gov. Andrew Cuomo matter.’”

When asked about the new allegation, a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement on Saturday night, “Based on the report we received regarding Chris’s conduct with his brother’s defense, we had cause to terminate. When new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action.”

Twitter Releases Redesigned Orange and Red ‘Misinformation’ Labels

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth. Reportedly the company has been testing new labels since July, and “are an update from those Twitter used for election misinformation before and after the 2020 presidential contest” reports the Associated Press.

The new designs include added orange and red labels to “stand out” more than the old blue version, which blended with Twitter’s blue color scheme. However, the company was also cautious, as “its tests showed that if a label is too eye-catching, it leads to more people to retweet and reply to the original tweet.”

The AP writes those labels used in the presidential election “drew criticism for not doing enough to keep people from spreading obvious falsehoods.” Therefore the redesign will launch on Tuesday in hopes of being “easier to notice.”

The AP states experts say such labels are helpful to users and allow the big tech social media giants to “sidestep the more difficult work of content moderation – that is, deciding whether or not to remove posts, photos and videos that spread conspiracies and falsehoods.”

In its testing phase, Twitter said the redesigned labels showed a 17% increase in “click-through-rate” meaning more people would click on the labels to read the information debunking false or misleading tweets. “Misleading tweets that got the redesigned label – with an orange icon and the words ‘stay informed’ were also less likely to be retweeted or liked than those with the original labels.”

Twitter labels three types of misinformation: “manipulated media,” such as videos and audio believed to have been deceptively altered in ways that could cause real-world harm; election and voting-related misinformation and false or misleading tweets related to COVID-19.

The AP adds “tweets with more serious misinformation – for instance, a tweet claiming that vaccines cause autism – will get a stronger label, with the world ‘misleading’ and a red exclamation point. It won’t be possible to reply to, like or retweet these messages.”
