After a certain CNN contributor attacked Breitbart News for allegedly platforming “conspiracy theorist” Paul Joseph Watson, the ever-popular YouTuber fought back with a scathing upload detailing the network’s long history of deceptive reporting.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Watson or any of his contemporaries have been viciously attacked by the mainstream press. However, considering that CNN has seemingly abandoned its policy of pretending people like Watson don’t exist, there’s definitely something to be said about the rise of alternative media’s popularity.
In the video below, Watson goes through decades of CNN making false or misleading reports, which have often been used by governments or other political actors as a justification for their questionable actions.
“Hands up, don’t shoot,” for example, was used as a rallying cry by the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of a white police officer shooting Michael Brown in Ferguson — despite the fact that Brown was shot during a violent altercation with the officer.
This barely scratches the surface of CNN’s myriad of half-truth broadcasting. Watch the video below for the full list.
