This Is...The Staged News Network

When you can't find fake news, create your own:
Things started out impossibly awful when one of the left-wing network's big stars, Kathy Griffin, staged a fake beheading of President Trump. Believe it or not, things actually went downhill from there. Within a few days CNN host Reza Aslan would publicly attack Trump as a "piece of shit" (and then lie about it). Less than 24 hours later, a five alarm credibility-calamity hit when video was released of CNN caught red-handed staging a protest for its cameras (and then CNN lied about it).
....

For his part, CNN's left-wing media reporter Brian Stelter attempted to Orwell away his network clearly manufacturing news, by dismissing it as a right-wing thing and doing what CNN always does — blaming the cops:

Police allowed demonstrators thru cordon "so they could show their signs" to media, @CNNPR says. CNN, BBC, AP "simply filmed them doing so."

First off, CNN is supposed to go where the news is. Not allow the news to come to them.

Secondly, Stelter doesn't address (because he simply can't) the CNN reporter, along with the behind-scenes-crew, all of whom are clearly seen stage-managing how and where the protesters stood.

This is not reporting or capturing news; this is CNN caught on video manufacturing a cherished narrative for maximum on-camera effect.
It's not like they haven't had practice doing this before...
