CNN ignored a mob attack on their news crew Wednesday night during demonstrations in Minnesota while promoting a “peaceful” narrative.
As protests and violence erupted in Brooklyn Center, Minn. following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright, a CNN news crew was attacked by demonstrators who are often labeled by the news outlet as “peaceful.”
A CNN crew member was hit in the head by an alleged frozen water bottle and the crew was violently chased away by protestors. The mob continued to throw objects at the crew’s car as they attempted to drive away.
Reporter Andy Ngo captured the attack on video and it quickly went viral on Twitter.
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter did not cover the incident in his “Reliable Sources” newsletter.
Instead, Stelter reported on the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner being canceled and former “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood coming out as gay.
“It was a mostly peaceful attack on the CNN news crew,” a Twitter user wrote.
“CNN’s journalism newsletter buries news that makes its side look bad. Even when its side attacks CNN employees,” Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News.
“It ignored how a CNN staffer was attacked by leftist rioters and then chased from the scene under threat of more violence. Last time I checked that’s news about journalism,” Gainor added. “Imagine CNN’s complete freak out if pro-Trump rioters had violently attacked their staffers. This is how they spin the news.”
The CNN crew member who was hit in the head later tweeted that him and his team were fine.
“My team and I are fine and I appreciate your concern. I hope for equal justice under the law and will continue to report on this vital story as it unfolds.”
CNN has recently been under fire for appearing to push anti-Trump propaganda. Project Veritas released video clips this week that revealed CNN’s alleged focus was “to get Trump out of office” during the 2020 presidential election.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced Wednesday that he is planning to sue CNN for defamation.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser
The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.
Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020 elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.
The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:
As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.
“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.
“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.
“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.
“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.
“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
