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.

All in the Family? Andrew Cuomo’s Brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment

Published

Chris Cuomo

A guest essay written for the New York Times by veteran television journalist and former executive producer Shelley Ross alleges CNN host Chris Cuomo sexually harassed her when they had previously worked together.

The alleged incident occurred when the two worked together at ABC News in 2005 and Ross now wants the host to “journalistically repent” for his behavior of squeezing her buttock without her permission.

“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” she wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”

Ross added Cuomo said to her, “I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss” and did it “with a kind of cocky arrogance.” Ross said she told him he couldn’t, pushed him off her and revealed her husband was right behind her, and they quickly left the party.

The party was for an ABC colleague’s departure. Later that evening, Cuomo sent her an email, which Ross printed. The email stated, “[T]hough my hearty greeting was a function of being glad to see you … christian slater got arrested for a (kind of) similar act, (though borne of an alleged negative intent, unlike my own)…and as a husband I can empathize with not liking to see my wife patted as such.”

Cuomo added he would like for Ross to pass along an apology to her “very good and noble husband,” and also “I apologize to you as well, for even putting you in su]ch a position.” He added he would remember his lesson the next time he was happy to see her.

Ross writes in her essay, “Mr. Cuomo may say this is a sincere apology. I’ve always seen it as an attempt to provide himself with legal and moral coverage to evade accountability.”

Afghan Journalists Release Photos After Being Severely Beaten by Taliban for Covering Women’s Protest

Journalists

Two Afghan journalists, photographer Nematullah Naqdi and reporter Taqi Daryabi were severely beaten by the Taliban for reporting on a women’s protest in Kabul. The two were battered after being beaten with batons, electric cables and whips. The beating occurred after being detained for several hours by Taliban fighters a day earlier.

The two men, who work for Afghan’s media outlet Etilaat Roz, released photos of their bruised bodies once back in their Kabul office, after being released from Taliban custody. Naqdi told Agence France-Presse “One of the Taliban put his foot on my head, crushed my face against the concrete. They kicked me in the head…I thought they were going to kill me.”

Daryabi added “we were in so much pain that we couldn’t move.” Naqdi said he was told “you are lucky you weren’t beheaded” when asked why they were being beaten. When covering a protest on Wednesday outside a Kabul police station calling for an end to Taliban violations of women and girls, Naqdi said a Taliban fighter immediately tried to grab his camera when he began taking photos.

Journalists

The Taliban were also rounding up anyone filming or taking photos of the demonstration, added Naqdi. The two say they were taken to a nearby police station where the beatings took place, only to be released after several hours.

Journalists

The New York Post reports dozens of Afghan reporters have been beaten or accosted in recent weeks since the Taliban has recovered control of Afghanistan. The Taliban, however, claims that they will uphold press freedoms under their new regime. As has been proven time and time again, not much faith, if any, can be placed into anything the Taliban says or promises.
