Patterico's Pontifications


CNN Edits Video to Make Bloodthirsty Woman Look Peaceful

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:56 am

It’s good to have the occasional reminder of how your media lies to you, right to your face. The latest example is this 28-second video, in which CNN edits a video of a woman screaming for violence in the suburbs to portray her as “calling for peace”:

CNN says it was “unintentional.”

Thus blatantly lying again.

Thanks to Tom Woods on Facebook. (Check the links on the sidebar for his Liberty Classroom. A couple of people have joined up and I hope to post more about it soon.)

  2. Congratulations, Patterico — you are part of the lying media.

    Lies of omission, lies of exaggeration, lies of distorted balance… you’re the Hate Trump media really no different that MSNBC but without the pictures.

    What will you NOT say to denigrate Trump with petty criticisms or out right lies about him… though you hide behind the idea that “opinions are not lies, just opinions.”

    But Hillary… relatively unmentioned in your little Anti-Trump-Troll-A-Thon.

    A real lover of facts and the rule of law, you are.

    Hillary thanks you and her minions thank you for “voting your conscience”.

  3. Huh? What have Trump or Clinton got to do with this?

  4. The media is the handmaiden of the left: fifty years of unadulterated attacks on traditional America.

  5. What the hell are you talking about, PTS? Patterico is pointing out how CNN edited this crazy broad to make it look like she was asking for peace and calm when in fact she was asking rioters to take the burning to the suburbs. Where did Patterico lie? And where did Patterico “denigrate Trump with petty criticisms or out right lies about him”? Am I suffering from The Mandela Effect?

  6. Maybe PTS is a bot that post these rants automatically.

    You’re suffering from selective memory disorder.

    Nearly every post Patterico makes is some crazy meme about Trump… very few about Hillary.

    He’s doing the same thing CNN does… highly edited to shape his point of view.

    What’s related is dishonest reportage.

    PTS (ce7fc3)

  8. On the one hand, yes, this is dishonest editing by misrepresenting the woman’s point of view.

    But on the other hand, I would be reluctant myself to broadcast video of people calling to burn down the suburbs, because that might encourage other people to burn down the suburbs.

  9. You might have a point, PTS. Not sure what it had to do with this post.

  10. PuTS, do you go to your neighbors’ homes and shit on the carpet?

    SPQR (2ba2b2)

  11. Kevin, you are on to something. PTS’s “contributions” to our blog rarely have anything to do with the subject matter. Perhaps this is a simple program that spews today’s message in the topic that happens to be at the top of the page. It would then be a matter of when the message is received by PTS for rebroadcast that determines what topic is the recipient of his widsom.

  12. When has Patterico lied or misrepresented anything?

    Milhouse (5a188d)

  13. You’re suffering from selective memory disorder.

    I really hope not, PTS. I try to be very fair but everybody has their own interpretation of things that happen. WE all have a point of view and I don’t see Patterico’s point of view being any more or less corrupt than any man who tries to be a fair minded individual. None of us is perfect (except the liberals).

  14. I expect lies from the news, not the truth.

  15. “But on the other hand, I would be reluctant myself to broadcast video of people calling to burn down the suburbs, because that might encourage other people to burn down the suburbs.”

    A common ethical/religious principle is, One should not commit a small evil in order to prevent a greater evil. You have no idea what Providence has in mind. Which is why the common thought experiment of going back in time to assassinate Hitler makes no sense. Rod Serling would just tell you, Fine, you just created Mega-Hitler. Jesus said, I come to bear witness to the Truth. He didn’t say, “Holy Fuck, I better not speak the truth, or else they might like crucify me or something!”

    This girl is the face of madness and evil. Madness and evil need to be observed, diagnosed, and confronted.

  16. Dear PTS

    Can’t you see all your efforts will come to naught? You can’t expect people in our bumper sticker society to understand irony or hypocrisy.

    Why do you think I’m so successful!

    Just keep it simple for them

    I love to tell voters that they have many choices in this election and that I am but one… that they should all vote their conscience since that is part of the unique value system on which our country is founded. On and on and on, blah, blah, blah

    See, you just overwhelm them with what sounds like complicated concepts, and way too many choices.

    Then give them a simple one line solution to all this, and they’ll always take it. ME! Ha ha ha.

    (That’s why Bill says, “don’t give them a sound meal, give them a sound bite.” HA HA HA!)

    Ever since Director Comey endorsed my honesty and integrity, the Trumpkins have continued to spread lies about me.

    But Patterico is truly doing his part to help with my election by slamming Trump on a daily basis. His is one of my favorites blogs along with Daily Kos. Any time someone goes after Trump, it is a big help to me.

    CNN, too is a great purveyor of the truth… MSNBC also!

    Did you read where Chris Mathews (I could just hug him) said to either get informed and vote for me or don’t vote at all!?

    Chris understands this is a … what do you call it, like in futures trading… ahh yes…. a “zero sum game.”

    This simply means a non-vote for Trump sustain’s my margin of lead. It is simply the next best thing to voting FOR me!

    This Patterico fellow is doing such a great service for Bill and me, racking up the non-votes against Trump.

    Rest assured that once we’re in the White House again (and it will certainly need a new coat of “white” after the monkey leaves, ha ha ha!) Bill and I intend to have Patterico up for dinner, (Bill wants to know if he has a teenage daughter in which case he’ll arrange a private game of naked Twister), and a free night in the Lincoln Bedroom for Patterico and “friend”.

    Speaking of friends, Bill and I DON’T EVER FORGET our friends… another zero sum game we love playing, if you catch my meaning, LOL.

    So PTS, you may as well give up and join me in the winner’s circle with my friend Patterico.
    Believe me, people don’t want to get a brain hernia with critical thinking and truly doing what’s best for the country. I’m counting on it! HA HA HA!

    Your Soon to be President

  17. Sadly, Dejectedhead, I’ve come to expect nothing but lies, obfuscation, slant and evasion from the news media too. I remember as a kid watching the Huntley/Brinkley Report or Walter Cronkite and believing what they said. Everybody believed them in those days, even the adults. Now I remember back and realize they too were just playing us. Oh, not a badly or as in-your-face as today but they played us nonetheless. Then within a few years they were secretly cheering for the communists in Vietnam and using every trick in the school of journalism playbook to make America look bad, the cause appear lost and our soldiers painted as baby killers. Now when I watch the news I’m constantly alert for lies, innuendo and lies of omission and they never, ever disappoint me.

    Rev. Hoagie® (0f4ef6)

  18. Joshua K: People are responsible for their own actions. this was a deliberate attempt by CNN to make BLM look “normal.” There is no way in hell you can convince me some editor or person at CNN sat and watched up to the point they cut it and said “enough, run it.”

    This person watched the entire “diatribe” by this woman and then said “stop it here.”

    Steve_in_SoCal (58e1f9)

  19. Dear Rev Hoagie

    When I was a kid, great emphasis was placed on teaching us to think critically… IOW, make a fully (or optimally) informed decisions by taking all facts, pro and con, eliminating all conjecture opinion, etc., understanding the consequences that could result from your decision and then making your choice. It was also reinforced that “not to decide” is deciding as well.

    In a reasonably curious intellect, there simply is no refuge from reality.

    We live in a truly global era of “bread and circuses”. With the attention span of fleas, our populace, especially younger people, can’t imagine a world before the internet, and live in an alternate state of reality fed by such diversions offered by the “Star Chamber” as Pokemon Go, etc.,

    But there is a sinister side to enjoying the “shiny bobbles” offered by the Powers That Be.

    Even when installing Windows 10 on your computer, you are agreeing to allow Microsoft to intrude into your computer any time it likes and do anything it likes while tracking what you do and selling this information to propagandists of one sort or another.

    When one’s kids down load Angry Birds or some other app, they are agreeing to terms and conditions and violations they could not possible understand… or care about.

    “They”, I’m afraid, are winning.

    The ONLY news network I know that broadcasts “real news” any longer (just the facts, Ma’am) is Fox… which of course also has opinion commentators.

    In terms of this election, if you relied on MSM, all we’d know is that there is an ever expanding “vast right wing conspiracy” trying to take down poor Hillary and Bill.

    I think we’re playing out a combination of “Brave New World” and “1984”. The MSM (Main Stream Ministry of Truth) is in charge, and it is decidedly “leftist progressive one world socialistic”

    The Ministry of Truth knows that all they have to do is get the minions, droids, drones of the hive mind, excited enough to vote their way ONE DAY in November and then its done… maybe for a generation.

    Its a bit like hyper advertising some block buster movie that rakes in gazillions on opening day and then flops.

    But unlike Hollywood, all the Ministry needs IS opening day to make a vast fortune in power and control.

  20. @PTS:Even when installing Windows 10 on your computer, you are agreeing to allow Microsoft to intrude into your computer any time it likes and do anything it likes while tracking what you do and selling this information to propagandists of one sort or another.

    There is an alternative. It has a steeper learning curve than Windows but it’s a) free, b) secur,e c) entirely under your control, if you wish, and d) free.

    And while you’re busy learning how to do that, you will be too busy to poop on comment threads unrelated to the topic you are interested in.

  21. Conclusion: No matter what the topic, PTS will try to turn the thread into a rant about Trump. Troll.

  22. the style is not how i’d like, but the point is valid,

    after we’ve covered every abuse of power that this regime, commits, or enables by commission, in the footnotes we can admonish trump,

  23. It’s not a lie if it helps the left.

    AZ Bob (d6a3a9)

  24. I agree with the good Rev.
    Back in the day we all thought Walter Cronkite and others were nothing but truth tellers.
    One can’t think critically very well if not given adequate information to think about.

    And we all know why there is not more criticism of Clinton here,
    for the same reason I don’t remember any posts on water being wet or humans needing to breath gas with oxygen in it.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  25. no, md, we must be reminded she is an instrument of the regime, she accepted the full assent of the likes of the lovely ms smith, at the convention,

    narciso (732bc0)

  26. There are many things I need to be reminded of,
    How corrupt, duplicitous, and evil the Clintons are
    Is not one of them.
    She was an Alinskyite before Obama.

    INCLUDES. Don’t Stop, Don’t stop, Don’t stop.

    What has happened to our SOCIETY, when LIBTARDS are 100% completely willing to LIE for the CAUSE of HONESTY?????

    GUS (30b6bd)

  28. @17 Steve: Yes, I assume it was dishonest editing.

    But my question is, would it have been responsible journalism to broadcast the woman calling for people to burn the suburbs? Or would that be inciting people to go and start fires and looting in the suburbs?

    Joshua K. (9ede0e)

  29. Do you want news media airing people’s calls for race war?
    I’d rather have them lie by deceptive editing to encourage people NOT to burn down stores and homes.

    NickM (c2b33b)

  30. cnn lies way too much

    they’re so sleazy how much they lie

    happyfeet (a037ad)

  31. I just caught on that the reporter literally said that the woman was “calling for peace” (which Patterico had mentioned in his original post). I’m sorry I didn’t notice that before.

    The reporter saying that the woman was “calling for peace” was just a lie, or at best a statement that bore no resemblance to reality. Regardless of anything else CNN was going to do, they shouldn’t have added that characterization.
