It is truly sad the lengths liberal media outlets CNN will go to to remain politically correct, even in the face of horrifying crimes such as mass murder committed by radical Islamic terrorists.
CNN was at it again recently when host Jake Tapper covered the latest terror attack in New York City on his program The Lead. In this tragedy, a man in a rented van drove into a bicycle path next to the Hudson River in Manhattan.
The man intentionally mowed down pedestrians, resulting in eight deaths and fifteen other wounded people. After committing his act, the assailant got out of his van, brandished fake firearms and, according to witnesses, yelled “Allahu Akbar!”
Said one witness about what happened, “I saw the car crash so I ran up the bridge. When I ran up the bridge, I saw this dude with two guns. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around. He was getting chased. And then all of the sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running.” The perpetrator is now in custody and the FBI is investigating the event as a terrorist act.
Instead of calling a spade a spade, CNN’s Tapper clearly tried to soften implications that the assailant might be a radical Islamic terrorist. Tapper mentioned that the killer screamed “Allahu Akbar!” but called the phrase “beautiful.” Commented Jake, “The Arabic chant Allahu Akbar, God is great — sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances and too often we hear of it being said in moments like this.” Are you sickened by CNN’s “journalism”?
