Brian Stelter ignores mob attack on CNN news crew

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.

Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.

“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.

In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.

“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”

The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
