Is it an apple or a banana? Well, if you look at this slip-up, it’s clear that CNN definitely stepped on a banana.
Remember kiddies, CNN says that they are all about ‘Facts First’.
Ben Wedeman, CNN’s Senior International Correspondent based in Beruit, fell for an incredibly obvious photoshop of a Tunisian holding a chainsaw being hoisted into the air during a protest of the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince.
The photo didn’t look at all legitimate with the chainsaw balanced precariously on the open hand of the protester as he was being lifted by other protesters.
One Twitter user noted that the hand under the chainsaw was also blurred. Another noted that there is a sliver of the original white background showing at the top of the chainsaw.
Nevertheless, Jim Sciutto, CNN anchor and National Security Correspondent, was totally blown away by it and retweeted it.
The Media (D) has been critical of President Trump for not condemning Saudi Arabia after the murder of Saudi national Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul. Khashoggi wrote occassional opinion pieces for the Washington Post, and also was sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization. Yet, he’s being hailed as a martyr by the Media (D) and suddenly they’re all anti-Saudi. Interesting that this coincides with President Trump’s lucrative deal with the Saudi government, and, despite the horribly bungled, and completely inappropriate murder of Khashoggi, the beginning of freedoms being introduced into restrictive Islamic kingdom.
Members of the Media (D) have been lambasting Trump for not ending our relationship with a key Middle East ally after the White House released a statement from the President stating that the relationship is too valuable to be destroyed over the death of one man, however inappropriate it was.
Also note that the Media (D) defended Obama for his Iran deal which turned a blind eye to (while simultaneously propping up) the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
So, spare me the ‘moral’ outrage.
The Media (D) is desperate to make the Saudi regime look bad, which means they’re totes kewl with spreading images of protests and ‘freedom fighters’ against the current regime and the Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman. In one instance, Reuters fell for a story and reported that the Saudi consul in Istanbul was fired and under investigation relating to the Khashoggi murder, but they had to pull the story and issue a retraction because it was based on a fake news website that modeled itself after Saudi Arabia’s online neswspaper, Sabq.
Sciutto and Wedeman got called out for spreading ‘fake news’.

Ouch. That’s embarrassing.
Both Wedeman and Sciutto have deleted their tweets.
Of course, not only are a couple of CNN hacks embarrassed, but we got some great photoshops out of the blunder.

This guy has a problem:
This isn’t going to help their reputation with conservatives that don’t trust the mainstream Media (D).
This is precisely why we need alternative media. We live in two worlds one of the left and the Media (D) and the right and alternative media. Social Media (D), the Democrats, and the Media (D) are trying to snuff out their competition because only one view is permitted.
We need to fight that, and you can help.
