Start at like 3:30 if you want to skip to the good stuff.
So imagine you are a reporter from CNN.
You have been told there was a deadly chemical weapon attack in syria. These chemicals unleashed by Assad are so deadly that merely breathing them in
killed many and caused many others to get violently ill and need to receive treatment.
So you get to syria and someone tells you they have a backpack that was contaminated with this deadly gas.
What do you do?
well if you are this reporter from CNN, you take a big whiff of that deadly chemical gas!
You cant make this stuff up!
She doesnt seem worried at all! But notice how she, in her no doubt epxert opinion of huffing deadly chemical agents, recognized that this backpack
does smell starnge and of potentil chemical gas.
I have been laughing for like 5 minutes at this!
How dumb do these people think we are! This is one of the most comical stunts I have seen on the media in a while.
And as usual, Jimmy Dore nails it in making fun of it.
edit on 27-4-2018 by Grambler because: (no reason given)
when I test for the weapon status, I generally point the weapon at one of my kids and pull the trigger and say "bang" just for fun. So I see this as
a perfectly acceptable way to verify the existence of chemical weapons.
This proves it, this proves that the whole thing was a setup by CNN. According to play ground rules (which CNN uses as a business model) "He who smelt
it, dealt it". CNN must have set this whole thing up in order to get viewers back.
***BACK TO REALITY...SADLY***
CNN doesn't have any real science correspondents any more. This became very obvious during a Shuttle Landing when they had a hard time explaining why
the Shuttle looked weird (spoilers, they were watching it through an IR camera). So this stupid, stupid behavior of sniffing a "suspected" bag that
may/may not have been contaminated with a chemical weapon, is just par for the course with these idiots. Personally, if I was in charge of there
safety, I would ask CNN to leave the country, before they got really hurt. This is just beyond stupid, this was dangerous and a whole new level of
moronic behavior from CNN.
I dont find this even slightly amusing.
Its not news, its propaganda and they know they can get away with touting any bull# they like so they do.
The mainstream media either needs to start placing a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen saying "for entertainment purposes only" or they need to
be held accountable in a serious and meaningful way for every single story they run with that is unverifiable and lock up the ones who have been
proven as liars.
Absolutely sickening to watch what has become of "News"
That reporter is lucky this is a proxy war where just about nothing is real. Someone better put her back in the office before she gets herself hurt...
or worse. The world isn't as safe as her gated community or 80k SUV.back home.
