From the Hunter Biden scandal to the Washington Post’s false reporting about former President Trump, the outright lying of the left-wing media has become a scandal of its own.
Sadly, Americans have come to expect to be lied to by the media.
And, while almost everyone knows CNN makes up Fake News, this time their actions are downright criminal.
CNN correspondent Ed Lavandera recently did a report on a group of smugglers using motorboats to ferry illegal aliens across the Rio Grande.
According to Lavandera, his video captured the operation going down in real-time.
Too bad for the left-wing reporter, the validity of his video was quickly called into question.
It didn’t take long for the video to be flagged as a fake.
The Daily Caller reported:
The American Prospect noted that activists “flagged” the “unusual video” and suggested it was “deliberately manufactured to present a story of a border crisis.” The activists also speculated that Border Patrol participated in the alleged “staged” event, The American Prospect reported.
“In the CNN footage, the smuggler leading the boat wears fatigues and a black ski mask,” according to the article. “Smugglers typically attempt to blend in with the migrants, to avoid more severe punishment should they be caught. Smugglers also don’t normally provide face masks and life vests, nor ferry six boatloads of people across in broad daylight. Migrants also don’t typically line up single file along the shore to cross.”
The Biden administration continues to downplay the very real border crisis resulting from their “open up the gates” policy.
Chaos has ensued at the border due to Biden’s flawed policies and desire to overturn the good former President Trump had accomplished.
Biden continues to keep the press from the border, which is, in turn, frustrating his once staunch supporters.
Thousands of illegal alien children are being crammed into unsafe and unclean facilities, and Biden has put a gag order in place preventing border patrol agents from telling the press anything.
Now, instead of covering the very real crisis at the border, CNN has taken to making their own videos and staging illegal border crossings.
While the blackout put in place by the Biden administration is absolutely appalling, that does not give so-called news outlets the right to stage scenes.
