CAUGHT: HLN Censors Baby-Saving Hero's Pro-Trump Shirt
We've called out bias in the media time and time again (see CNN Forced to Apologize For Doctoring Violent Milwaukee Video). This time their bias, or more specifically anti-Trumpness, has shone through in a painfully obvious way. A man rescued a baby girl from baking to death in a hot car. Swell guy. Naturally, HLN interviewed him so their audience could behold his awesomeness. What they didn't want their audience to see? His pro-Trump shirt. Too triggering. So they censored it.
Here's the original interview, along with a snippet of the edited clip.
A retired police officer [Steve Eckel] saved a life earlier this week. A four-month-old girl [was] left inside of a locked car as temperatures climbed into the high 80s that day. Eckel... broke the windows so he could get the girl out.
On Wednesday, Christi Paul interviewed Eckel on HLN to get details on the rescue, at which time he was wearing a blue pro-Donald Trump shirt. HLN re-ran the interview about an hour later, at which point the "Trump for President 2016" on Eckel's shirt was noticeably blurred out.
The ole censor trick didn't work, of course. People didn't buy it. Just like people don't buy shirts with the words blurred out. Nice try, HLN.
It's a tad embarrassing that HLN went to such great lengths to shield their viewers from the mere sight of Trump support. Especially considering his supporters aren't exactly a fringe group of Americans. Because even while leftists try to drown them out, they still make up practically half the country...
Unfettered liberal bitterness towards Trump, and his supporters, isn't a new thing (see Tolerance: Leftists Burn Trump Supporter's Lawn... Because of a Sculpture?). But this? Reveals the frailty of the left. No disagreement allowed. Not only that, but they won't allow the sight of your disagreeing viewpoint to affront their feeble, weakling eyes. Get it? NO. DISAGREEMENT. ALLOWED.
It's a T-shirt...
Might I remind you, we're talking about a shirt here. A shirt. The offense part of this story? Should be the woman who left her baby in a hot car. But no, HLN blurred a shirt - a baby saver's shirt - who wants Trump for president. The nerve on that hero!
It's 2016, folks. Leftists want to turn the entire world into a safe space. Allegedly. And the media? Leading the charge. No, really...
