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.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
