Quote:You can only present things as you have them. The kids reacted after Philips made his statement. OF course it would be after.
However, they reported it early in the morning, when they got there side.
Isn't that the whole point? That CNN and everyone else reported before getting the kids' side, for full verification and fairness?
Quote:There were also reports that the kids families were urging them not to talk until they talked to a lawyer, which would have delayed things.
That's not an excuse for rushing to judgment. The news, all of them, goofed badly. A 16 year old kid's name has gone public now, and his family has received death threats. It's not right, and every news network that ran their stories should now apologize. They have not retracted their previous news stories, and Chris Evans (Captain Shit Bag) has still not retracted his Twitter post. In fact, he has doubled down, retweeting that videos "BACK UP/STRENGTHEN Mr. Nathan Phillips," despite all the evidence I showed to the contrary. This, to me, is proof how toxic liberals have become.
Even still, there's this USA Today columnist who still denies the evidence. Both she and Chris Evans cited Lisa Sharon Harper as their source.
Here's Ms. Harper. Look at her Twitter feed and judge for yourself what kind of honest and fair person she is.
While I could allow for the press to be wrong...it happens sometimes. The doubling down part and citing of people like Ms. Harper as a reliable source when she clearly is biased has me on the side of essentially calling this FAKE News as well.
To only represent one side....to not fact check...to not investigate...to double down...how is this any different than Trumps comments he keeps gong back nd forth on...there is no difference.
Here's another CNN screw up for you:
CNN is looking worse every day
