CNN has responded to claims that a leaked video shows them fabricating a Muslim-led anti-terror protest after the London attacks, calling the allegations “nonsense.”

The video has been circulating around social media and shows CNN reporter Becky Anderson standing by while her crew organizes and directs a group of Muslim protesters holding anti-terror signs.

CNN Responds To Claims They Staged A Muslim Anti-Terror Protest

This video is unbelievable,

it looks like CNN has set up a small set to get a group of Muslims together and pretend that there is a Muslim protest going on, it's all choreographed so well, everything is made to seem spontaneous but it's not

I have to say that it's getting a bit out of control to see mainstream media create narratives these days, it has gotten progressively worse and worse and they have become so bold and so anti-western. The left won't even care about this video, even if it isn't entirely nefarious it is disingenuous.

The video represents the very definition of 'staging'.

No, no CNN - you are the most pure of all journalists... yeah, that's the ticket.

Good grief, who do you think you are fooling? LOL

How many threads are there on this?
Anyway the police allowed those demonstrators already there to do this. It's pretty common with the media. And why are they so unconcerned about someone videoing this?

Would it also not be possible that there were Muslims there protesting, and CNN just wanted to "organize them better" for TV presentation?

A bit like posing for a photo.

CNN International responded to the claims that they staged the protest, writing, “This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs. CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so.”

While I will not generally jump to a conclusion that supports CNN and its news telling, I will say that my experience working in newspaper photography for a short while does dictate that sometimes you have people who are already doing something (i.e.: Protesting) move to better positions and whatever in order to have a better background or better grouping of people in a shot. Most groups are willing to accommodate because they want the exposure.

This COULD BE what is going on here, although I think that the possibility that it's stages is equal.

Yup, and it's done quite often by media organizations.

Like you, I noted this possibility, and also felt a need to note that I am not defending CNN

Just when I thought there was hope for CNN (Firing Kathy Griffin)...they go and pull a stunt like this.

Now CNN is outing the police as being complicit. Lol

As well as other MSM outlets.

Credibility crumbling all around. HA!

CNN International PR ✔ @CNNPRUK
@KTHopkins @CNN This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs. CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so
Twitter

They even suck at lying to cover up their lies.


The video plainly shows CNN didn't "simply film them".

Tell them that. They seem to think that means they were "staging" a fake news.

Sure, Andy, in the strict-sense of the wording, it does.

However; In the context of this, it was being used as "completely fake". IE, hired actors paid to fake a protest.

Let's not be intellectually dishonest.

I wonder how many times CNN HASN'T been caught staging these things.

Hmmmm..."Turn to love"....remember after Sandy Hook it was "Choose Love" ?

Always have the trendy hashtags ready for any emergency.
Everything in the video is put there on purpose; cute 2 year old kid, lots of women wearing pink (so you'll know the Islamic feminists), nicely scribbled signs to give them authenticity....

There were no actual protests for CNN to cover then?
Is that the response of the Muslim community in London?

CNN truly needs to be shutdown and dissolved... This isn't the reporting of "news" this is pure propaganda that these c*nts are manufacturing...

On a different note, I saw only 14 people placing flowers on that spot for this "vigil". They all looked to be dressed in traditional Muslim attire (I apologize of that is the wrong description). So of the thousands upon thousands of "moderate" Muslims we hear that denounce this type of action, only about a dozen show up to pay respects?

Not a very big turnout IMO. What is that less than 0.0007% of the population that supposedly do not agree with the terrorists or support them in any way?

If CNN is telling the truth, why was everything set up BEFORE the "protesters" were let through? Why did they want to be let through?

Ps: what is that weird platform they are standing on?
