Let’s face it, the liberal media is facing a major integrity crisis and is willing to do just about anything to convince you they are right even when the overwhelming evidence proves them wrong…
Following Saturday’s horrific attack in London which has left 7 dead and over 40 wounded by the hands of Islamic terrorists, CNN is now being accused of staging a protest in an effort to spin the senseless tragedy into a ‘pro-Muslim’ narrative.
The sickening display of journalistic malfeasance was captured on video by Twitter user London video Mark Antro and has since sparked a firestorm of controversy for the embattled network CNN which is still struggling to recover from President Trump’s 2016 allegations that the outlet is nothing more than ‘fake news.’
As a result of the allegation that reporter Becky Anderson ‘directed several self-described “Muslim mothers” to stand behind her as they show support for London Police,’ CNN has now been forced to defend themselves, insisting that the entire controversy is nothing more than an attack by the ‘far-right’ attempting to discredit the organization.
Police allowed demonstrators thru cordon “so they could show their signs” to media, @CNNPR says. CNN, BBC, AP “simply filmed them doing so.”

So what exactly did CNN do now? Let’s take a closer look…
In a tweet containing his video evidence that the protest was staged, Antro blasted CNN for ‘creating the narrative’ calling the outlet #FakeNews. Additionally, Antro alleged that ‘CNN also timed this, BBC wanted to film it when they were on air,’ before adding the CNN’s staff ‘were having non[sic] of it.’
But it gets better…
As if staging the photo-op was not enough, Antro accused the media outlet of replacing ‘white‘ police officers with ‘Asian‘ ones to create a more diverse image.
Note the white police officers leaving before the CNN shot & the Asian officers coming in. They then left after they went off air!

CNN is being accused of creating a pro-Muslim narrative for a live TV shot just hours after Saturday’s terrorist attack in London, but the network is calling the claim “nonsense.”
In a YouTube video published Sunday, it appears that reporter Becky Anderson directed several self-described “Muslim mothers” to stand behind her as they show support for London Police.
CNN released the following statement to Mediaite regarding the matter:
“This story is nonsense. The group of demonstrators that was at the police cordon was being allowed through by officers so they could show their signs to the gathered media. The CNN crew along with other media present simply filmed them doing so.”
