Oh CNN. I really do have a love/hate relationship with that entire organization of unapologetic leftist hacks. CNN shamelessly pushes narratives in the digital equivalent of broad daylight, while claiming to be a serious news organization. Along comes the internet and bursts their delusional bubble.
Here’s what happened. Sister of slain Syville Smith from Milwaukee voiced her honest thoughts. Ten points for sincerity.

You saw and heard that correctly. Sherelle encourages protesters to stop burning “their own sh!t,” and to refocus the pyrotechnics on the ‘burbs.
CNN found this displeasing. Well one does. The sister is, after all, encouraging violence. Violence in the suburbs, an area which is stereotypically white. But rather than air it as is, CNN got a little creative, deciding to cut away from the part where the sister calls for MOAR FIRE.
Here, lemme show you:
Uh huh. Now some might call that “editing for time.” I call that “editing to be deceptive little dingleberries.” This story burned up Reddit, for reasons I’ve already explained.
Well apparently the heat got a bit too intense for CNN. What with everyone calling them out for the douche-dispenseriess they clearly are. They were forced to “apologize” for their little whoopsie, and did so by slipping it in with another segment. Blink and you’ll miss it.

#UneditedFootageMatters people. Yes, editing for time, editing for clarity, editing for impact happens in just about every video in the history of moving pictures. It’s necessary. We’re not against editing video. Okay? Okay.
But what CNN did was edit to be deceptive. CNN clearly said the sister was calling for peace. When she was calling for violence. One of these things is not like the other. Which CNN knew, hence their cutaway. Reminds me of that time Katie Couric was caught deceptively editing video for her anti-gun documentary. Memories.
Obviously I can’t say for certain why CNN chose to edit that little tidbit of flame-inciting from their segment, but I can venture a guess. In an attempt to paint Mr. Smith, the shooting victim, as nothing but a victim, they tried showing how even his sweet sister was calling for peace. CNN may have been trying to show how even amongst all this “hate” toward black people, the sister of the victim was super reasonable.
For the record, calling to burn the suburbs, when no one in the suburbs was responsible for what happened in this shooting? Not reasonable.
By the way, this very same CNN accused David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress of “deceptively editing” the videos which exposed the horrors of Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts. Let that sink in.
Speaking of BlackLivesMatter being a bunch of violent turds, check this out:
