CNN needs to stop deceptively editing videos

Washington Examiner

"Creating a narrative through deception won't help victims or change the minds of skeptics. When people see the media lying to them, it makes it difficult to believe the narrative being crafted.
"Take the recent examples of CNN. The network has now twice edited videos to create alternate narratives in regards to the recent shootings of two different black men by cops.
"ust this week, the pro-police group Blue Lives Matter charged that the network deceptively edited video of the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. The full video, taken by his wife Rakeyia, featured officers repeatedly telling Scott to "drop the gun." In the video aired on CNN, no such demands were shown.
"The editing was clearly intended to give viewers the impression that Scott wasn't armed. By intentionally excluding information to promote the false narrative that the officer-involved shooting of Keith Scott was unjustified, CNN directly contributed towards inciting violence and destruction in the Charlotte riots," the group said in a statement.

"Innocent citizens were hurt during the Charlotte riots, but editing like this also incites violence against police officers long after the riots are over." . . .
