CNN is out of control.
Their efforts to validate fake news and fake documentaries for the sake of pushing their liberal agenda is downright disgusting. Their latest shenanigan is just another addition to the long history of fake news stories run by the leftist media giant.
According to The Conservative Treehouse :
CNN is promoting a highly charged false claim about new, heavily edited CCTV footage from the Ferguson Liquor Market on the night before Mike Brown was shot and killed. We have thoroughly deconstructed the lies HERE.
CNN is promoting this fake documentary, “Stranger Fruit“, that uses heavily edited footage of an earlier Mike Brown visit to the store. According to the documentary Mike Brown was exchanging marijuana for store product at 1:13am the night (early morning) prior to his return and strong arm robbery of the same store. The footage is edited to give the appearance of store employees accepting weed as barter for product. This is false.
Secondarily, the producer of the video, Jason Pollock, is claiming the police never released the earlier in the day CCTV footage and instead tried to hide it. Again, this is false. Both the Grand Jury and the FBI were given -and reviewed- all of the CCTV footage including footage from the 1:13am visit. However, CNN is promoting the falsehoods by the documentary producers in an effort to stir trouble.
What ensues after CNN reports on this fake documentary as truth?
Protests and gunfire outside the Ferguson Market. Rags stuffed in gas tanks of police cars with the intent to blow officers up.

Though damage was “minor”, this could certainly have escalated quickly, to disastrous proportions.
All because CNN chooses not to check facts and instead go with the juiciest story. FOR SHAME.
Furthermore, what I don’t get is HOW Michael Brown visiting the market to deal drugs (before he assaults and robs store workers later) does anything to prove his innocence.
Even if store owners had accepted a barter transaction, how does this clear Brown’s name?
Not only does this story not prove his innocence, it only incites emotional and passionate responses from Ferguson protesters.
Is it worth it, CNN? To promote false news and put police officers’ lives in danger?
Are ratings that bad? Or is this your form of entertainment?
