CNN Launches Attack on Fox News Host Martha MacCallum. There’s Just One Problem.

Due diligence is a critical component of solid journalism. Now. Someone just needs to tell CNN that.

Published

on

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.”

“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.

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

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:

After Notre Dame Fire, Man Arrested with Gas Gans in NYC Cathedral

The news comes just days after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was accidentally set ablaze.

gasoline fire arson

The hellish blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week was a disheartening spectacle that none of us would ever hope to see again, anywhere in the world. For many, the timing of the inferno was almost too coincidental to be accidental, given that this is the beginning of Holy Week for the Christian faith, culminating with Easter Sunday in just a few days.  Online conspiracy theorists have long been trying to tie these threads together in order to fit their own narrative, mind you, complete with the occasional race-baiting insinuation that this was Islamic terrorism. To be clear, there is no evidence of a criminal act having taken place at Notre Dame. In contrast, however, police in New York City have arrested a man who looked to clearly be ready to reenact the Notre Dame blaze at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral just yesterday. A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The unidentified 37-year-old man had pulled up Wednesday night in a minivan outside the landmark cathedral on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, walked around the area, then returned to his vehicle at 7:55 p.m. and retrieved the gasoline and lighter fluid, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller. That’s scary enough…but it gets stranger. “His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. That his car had run out of gas,” Miller said. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.” The incident comes as another potential copycat criminal was found dead after “obsessing”…

North Korea Taunts USA with New Weapons Test

North Korea has a history of diplomatic ebbs and flows, but this is the sort of bait-and-switch insult that could have Trump ready to wallop Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un

Perhaps it was always too good to be true. Donald Trump, a President who was widely lambasted by the liberal left on account of his political inexperience, became an unprecedented hero in an unlikely situation with North Korea early into his presidency. For reasons perhaps still unknown, Trump’s opening of a dialogue with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly seemed to bring the DPRK back into the global community.  Part of this resurgence included, as it must, a promise of denuclearization by the hermit kingdom. Somewhere along the way, things have fallen off the rails, likely at the behest of Kim himself. Now, ever more astonishingly, the dainty despot is pushing the envelope even further with claims of a new weapons test. North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness. And that’s not all:  The DPRK is also now taking pot shots at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations. Was this all a ruse by North…
