Over the past several years, CNN has been caught staging events and twisting facts so many times, that it’s a miracle anyone still watches them.
In their latest scandal, however, they reach a new low. After the recent terrorist attacks in London, which seem to be happening more and more frequently, they gathered a small group of Muslims protesting, and attempted to make it look like a massive gathering.
In fact, you can even see the CNN director ushering the people over, closer together, so that the cameraman can give the appearance that the group is 10x larger than it actually is.
Thankfully, Twitter User @markantro first captured the deceptive tactics used by CNN on camera. He tweeted a video out on June 4th, which has recently been picked up by some of the bigger media watchdogs, such as @Cernovich and Gateway Pundit.
CNN caught staging news!
They even brought "peace group" printed out papers and props.

Since then, Twitter has seen a frenzy of angry users attacking CNN and Becky Anderson, the woman involved in this staged news report. The #MAGA movement has even got several hashtags trending, such as #CNNisISIS and #CNNisFakeNews.

You can very clearly see, from the Mark Dice video above, that the directors carefully orchestrated the crowd into an organized group, so as to make the protest look much larger than it was…anything to maintain the narrative, right?
After multiple alternative news outlets such as Zero Hedge, Info Wars, and Cernovich attacked CNN for the obvious breaching of journalistic ethics, they responded by claiming that the protest was not, in fact, staged…and they expect you to believe this.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“But CNN dismissed the claim that it had staged the scene for any purpose outside of getting a clear shot on camera.”
” ‘This story is nonsense,’ CNN said in a statement. ‘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.’ “
It’s very clear from the footage shown that CNN did not present the protesters simply “doing so,” but rather painstakingly organized them to make their movement look like it was overwhelmingly mainstream, when it wasn’t.
Zero Hedge adds that CNN is desperately clamoring to push the “Religion of Peace,” narrative, despite the fact that numerous ISIS supporters and supposedly “moderate,” Islamists have been celebrating the attacks.
“Being one of the more inept tentacles of the deep state, CNN was apparently caught staging Fake News in the aftermath of the ISIS claimed London attacks which claimed 7 lives and injured 48.”
“While ISIS supporters are celebrating the attacks, MSM propagandists have been hard at work pushing the “religion of peace” narrative – trotting out hijabbed women and a child to hold signs expressing Muslim outrage at the terrorist attacks.”
Even news sites as large as the Daily Mail have been calling out the Caliphate News Network, as some have jokingly called it.
“But a video which emerged of the group apparently being positioned by TV reporters led to claims online that the channel was ‘creating a narrative’.”
“The video shows the group being ushered past the media and positioned so that cameras can see them.”
“[Becky Anderson] called the demonstrators a ‘poignant scene’ and urged the camera to pause on them to viewers ‘how people feel here on the streets of London’.”
“The man who filmed the footage, a Twitter user called @markantro, tweeted: ‘CNN creating the narrative #FakeNews’ “
It seems that every day more and more Americans lose faith in traditional media, and turn to alternative outlets. Yet, with CNN still having an enormous amount of power, they’re doing everything they can to cling to their once prestigious reputation.
