CNN Fesses Up for Editing ‘Burn Down’ Suburbs Quote From Milwaukee Woman to Make Her Sound Peaceful
But what we originally covered as a minor point in the article has become a much larger story.
CNN had the clip, and didn’t use it. As first reported by Independent Journal Review, in footage CNN ran on Monday, they described her as peaceful. That was clearly inaccurate, as she was urging people to “burn” the suburbs.
Now the news network is confessing their mistake.
Ana Cabrera, a reporter involved in the story, says they “shorthanded” the quote, and that it was unintentional.
