CNN Creates Fake Anti-ISIS Protest

If you’ve ever read The Last Centurion by John Ringo, you’d think this type of thing would stay in fiction. Of course, Ringo was basing his book on reality, and what happens, like this

(Powerline) Mark Antro observed CNN staging a protest by Muslims against ISIS and terrorism, and filmed it. As you watch the video, you can see that this is not a bona fide demonstration that CNN observed and reported on. Rather, the entire event–one could say, the pitifully small event–is being stage-directed by CNN for its cameras, to advance CNN’s narrative. In this case, the story CNN wants to promote is that most Muslims reject extremism. That might be true, but if so, it would be nice to see more than 15 or 20 people participating in a faked event.

As noted, once the filming was done, the “protesters” immediately dispersed. Powerline also shows that the AP ran with the fake protest. CNN’s Brian Stelter is trying to defend the video. It’s not working.

The BBC ran with the “protest”, as well. 20 years ago, the media would have been able to get away with this.

Let’s consider, if it was Fox News manufacturing a protest, or the Daily Caller, Breitbart, etc, can you imagine the coverage that would be given by the major news media calling them out? So far, the rest of the media is saying nothing.
