CNN calls Kenosha riots ‘Fiery but mostly peaceful’

JONATHAN TURLEY:

CNN national correspondent Omar Jimenez was reporting live from Kenosha, Wis. with a raging fire in the background over a chyron reading, “FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING.”  Not to get “all mavericky,” but claiming these protests are mostly peaceful but “fiery” seems a tad oxymoronic. ..

… CNN’s Don Lemon (who has been repeatedly criticized for vehemently anti-Trump rhetoric) declared that the rioting had to stop because it was starting to work for Trump and “showing up in polls.”

This follows a long effort to downplay the violence and looting around the country. Indeed, Democratic senators at a hearing on violent protests (where I appeared as a witness) insisted that the violence in Portland was due to federal officials being present and that the violence immediately subsided after they were pulled back.

Witnesses pointed out that the night before a riot was declared by Portland police and the violence had continued unabated. It still continues.The fact is that there is considerable violence including arson and looting at protests.

    Little Donnie Limon at least blurted out what everyone else in the left-wing media have been signaling (albeit without much subtlety). They couldn’t care less about destruction (and now death) in American cities–even third-tier ones like Kenosha–but if it helps Trump it’s got to stop.

    CNN’s Don Lemon & Jacob Blake’s mother: “I apologize to President Trump…” Loathsome Lemon gets a surprise !

    Not sure if CNN still has this up BUT here’s another site -Go 1 minute, 38 seconds in. The look on Don’s face looks like he’s chokin’ on his own last name. And this lady is pure class.
