CNN Tried To Pass The Buck Off To Time For ‘Fake Cover’ Being The Cause American’s Distrust Them
Just one problem, they have been on the exact same bandwagon as Time Magazine. Even spreading the same image while playing audio clips of children crying. How stupid do they think we really are?
The two hosts agreed that Time was wrong and furthered the wedge between Americans and the media – but never mentioned their own piece of that pie.
“Not just Republicans should pounce, media should pounce, Democrats should pounce, because when you make someone the emblem of a problem in a land where people have a lot of suspicions about media coverage and think this might be somebody messing with them or exaggerating a problem that existed in a different capacity under Obama,” Ham said.
“Then yeah, when you put that person as the symbol and it turns out she is not affected by that policy and was in fact not separated and her mother was a repeat offender coming over the border again…yes people are going to wonder if you’re lying to them about other things,” Ham added.
According To The Blaze:
The cover’s depiction, which showed the girl cowering to President Donald Trump, was dishonest because the actual girl in the viral image was never separated from her mother. In fact, according to the photographer who took the photo, the girl cried because her mother was being detained for illegally entering the U.S.
According to CBC, the picture of a crying young Honduran girl in a pink jacket and jeans became a powerful image to illustrate the controversial U.S. policy of separating children from parents arrested for crossing illegally from Mexico.
But the picture has sparked its own controversy, as it has since been learned the image did not tell that specific story.
“The picture just does not say what we all thought it said. And I think that’s a problem,” said Dan Kennedy, an associate professor of journalism at Northeastern University.
In fact, the girl’s own father came forward to set the record straight. Telling readers of the Daily Caller that his family was never separated. Worse, that the three-year-olds mother took the little girl without telling him.
So, now we have CNN trying desperately to separate themselves from the bogus reporting over the border crisis. Do you think people are going to buy it? Let us know in the comments below.
