CNN sees nothing wrong with ‘Staged’ protester video during London aftermath

CNN International admits that this is simply business as usual:

Via mediaite: CNN Rebuts Claim They ‘Staged’ a Pro-Muslim Shot During London Aftermath | Mediaite

CNN’s Statement: “This story is nonsense. The group of demonstrators that was at the police cordon was being allowed through by officers so they could show their signs to the gathered media. The CNN crew along with other media present simply filmed them doing so.”

CNN’s statement unwittingly illustrates the criticism here exactly, that the CNN crew used the photo opportunity to set up a staged shot that allowed the reporter “editorialize” while claiming that it was straight news reporting.

CNN, BBC and AP actually see nothing wrong about the blatant violation of traditional news reporting ethics here.

So who are you going to believe, Brian Stelter … or your lying eyes?
