CNN, REALLY?! Brian Stelter shames ‘news outlets’ reporting on ISIS in LV without a ‘shred of evidence’

Ok, so Brian Stelter has a point – news outlets probably should wait for actual evidence before running with a story – but coming from a guy who works for CNN … ZOMG.

Gosh Brian, ya’ think?

Whatever gave you that impression?

From the Associated Press:

The Islamic State group on Monday claimed responsibility for the mass shooting in Las Vegas, saying the perpetrator was “a soldier” who had converted to Islam months ago, without providing any evidence to support the claim.

The group’s Aamaq news agency released two brief statements hours after the shooting at a country music concert that killed at least 50 people and wounded at least 400. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

IS did not name the suspected shooter, but said he had “executed the operation in response to calls to target countries of the coalition” batting the extremist group in Iraq and Syria.

Police have identified the shooter as Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, and have said he killed himself after the shooting. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said authorities believe it was a “lone wolf” attack, and the U.S. Homeland Security Department said there was no “specific credible threat” involving other public venues in the U.S.

Hrm.

Kinda.

Heh.

Depends on the narrative that day.

And sorry, but a lesson on responsible reporting from anyone who works for CNN is just hilarious.

Shh … narrative.

Hilarious, right?

We’re still laughing.
