A CNN reporter launched a false attack on Fox News host Martha MacCallum by using a deceptively edited video Wednesday evening that was from a hardcore left-wing hit group. The video’s purpose was to inaccurately portray an exchange MacCallum had with a retired FBI agent.
MacCallum featured the FBI profiler and forensic linguist Jim Fitzgerald to discuss the rash of bomb packages delivered throughout the day. Fitzgerald is uniquely qualified to discuss the topic, given he helped to catch the infamous Unabomber.
Speaking about the different potential scenarios of who could have been behind sending the devices, Fitzgerald explained that it could be someone on the political Right, a foreign entity looking to meddle in U.S. elections, or a false flag attack staged by someone on the political Left.
“A false flag, they also call it black ops, [is] some kind of an operation where a crime, or a letter, or something is done to make it look like it belongs to one entity when it actually in real life belongs to the other,” Fitzgerald said. “And I’m by no means locked into this theory, but I’ll tell you this Martha, these devices were either made and sent by a right-wing guy who doesn’t like the Dems — and we can’t rule out international aspects to this, Russians messed with our 2016 elections just using Facebook, could they have done this? — the other [possibility] is that false flag.”take our poll - story continues below
“And there could be someone in there, some Democrat, that low-level person, I’m not suggesting anyone on the top, but who just decided, ‘I’m going to put this out,’ because two weeks before a major election, who’s going to look like the bad guy here? The Republicans,” Fitzgerald concluded.
MacCallum responded by saying, “Fascinating,” before launching into her next question.
CNN’s Oliver Darcy tweeted a video clip from Media Matters that cut out most of what Fitzgerald said. The clip only included him saying:
…the other [possibility] is that false flag.

What this little clip failed to show was that Fitzgerald also discussed how it could very well be a right-wing person or even a foreign entity responsible for the activity. He also noted that he was not sold on the “false flag” theory.
The heavily edited clip also did not mention that he was an expert FBI profiler, noting that he was a “Fox News guest.”
Here’s what Darcy posted along with the deceptive video clip:
“It’s the responsibility of @marthamaccallum to make sure that after her guest spreads an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory on her air, she immediately corrects it for viewers and provides them the facts. Instead she simply replies, ‘Fascinating.'”

The real question here is how many times has CNN jumped to conclusions and perpetuated conspiracy theories without waiting for the full facts on a situation to be gathered and disseminated for the general public?
How about that whole Russian collusion stuff? Or when Brian Stelter suggested that Fox News manufactured the crisis at the U.S.- Mexico border. Or the time a CNN analyst hypothesized that the Boston Bombing could be the product of right-wing terrorists?
Conveniently, they seem to have forgotten all about those situations.
Here’s the full video with MacCallum and Fitzgerald:

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’
There is justice in The Sunshine State.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.
Biden Demands that Americans Snitch on their ‘Radicalized’ Neighbors
Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous.
Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous. Biden is demanding that Americans be on the look-out for “radicalized” behavior and to call the police when they think they see it. Of course, by “radicalized,” he means being conservative and white. In a recent conversation with the press, a senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it spreads. The teleconference discussion was posted to the White House website. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said according to the White House posting. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility. “This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends, or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official added. But instead of Islamic terror, Biden thinks we have to worry about evil white people. As Breitbart News reminded us all: Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.” The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization. “Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the…
