‘Simply UNTRUE’! CNN’s coverage of Gaza riots gets them BUSTED for journalistic malpractice [pics]

Another day, another Great Moment in Journalism from CNN:

Some things are open to interpretation and some things are untrue. This, @CNN, is simply untrue. The violent Hamas-led rioters on the Gaza-Israel border aren’t “protesting the [embassy] move.” Their leaders say openly that they want to breach the border and infiltrate Israel. pic.twitter.com/KBsGxwNn80

If it were at all true that the violent Hamas-led rioters on the Gaza-Israel border were merely “protesting the [embassy] move,” why wouldn’t we be seeing anything of the sort happening in the West Bank, which has been relatively quiet all day? https://t.co/MBPHXJnn3x

Because narrative! Must … protect … the narrative.

Well there’s the truth and then there’s #CNNTruth

Very subtle, CNN.

This, and the similar juxtaposing Gaza/embassy photos on news pages (and no doubt in news papers tomorrow), represents a casual and knowing failure of journalism.

This is the “draw your own conclusion bc we’ll rightly be condemned if we tell you what we really think” media. https://t.co/V1PAG34YES

Media is a joke. It’s like they don’t even want to try anymore. https://t.co/gzt45ln3hG
