Mark Antro observed CNN staging a protest by Muslims against ISIS and terrorism, and filmed it. As you watch the video, you can see that this is not a bona fide demonstration that CNN observed and reported on. Rather, the entire event–one could say, the pitifully small event–is being stage-directed by CNN for its cameras, to advance CNN’s narrative. In this case, the story CNN wants to promote is that most Muslims reject extremism. That might be true, but if so, it would be nice to see more than 15 or 20 people participating in a faked event.
Here is the video:
Once CNN was done shooting, the “protesters” dispersed.
The Associated Press shares CNN’s agenda, so it was happy to piggy-back on CNN’s astroturf with this tweet, showing the same photo-op, but cropped to make it look less forlorn:
This is a good example of fake news of an unusually important kind. One of the great issues of our time is whether “normal” Muslims are willing to take decisive action against Islamic terrorism. The evidence so far is not encouraging; if it were, CNN and the AP wouldn’t need to stage photo-ops.
