Pro-Israel and conservative blogs have been all over the story of CNN peddling a bit of Hamas theater today. As you watch this video, take a good look at the supposed "victim" and the medical treatment he receives.
After the uproar erupted, CNN pulled the video from its servers, without a word of explanation. Following the links provided on many of the blogs led you to a CNN video player page with the simple notice that this video was "no longer available."
Now, more 12 hours later, even the empty video page is gone. Now, the link takes you to a text-only story with no evidence that a video ever existed.
So, the video was questionable enough that it had to be removed, but the story supporting the fradulent video stays?
That's not bad journalism, that's out and out propaganda.
And still not a peep from "the most trusted name in news."
CNN doubles down on deceit.
I love this explanation:
Responding to accusations that the resuscitation efforts of Mashharawi's brother appeared inauthentic, Martin said that, based on his years of reporting from Gaza, doctors often go through such efforts even with little hope that a patient can be saved.
So, if there's little hope that someone can be saved, you do chest compressions on the kid's stomach?
Also watch the video again and focus on the damage allegedly caused by an Israeli missile launched from a drone. The only missiles capable of being launched from a drone are Hellfire missiles. Is there any doubt that a Hellfire missile would've caused much more damage -- including flattening the entire home?
CNN brings new meaning to the term "useful idiot." Who are you going to trust? The "most trusted name in news" or your lying eyes?
