(NaturalNews) The one thing about technology is that it can come back to bite you at some point. For CNN, that has happened on more than one occasion.
The network became famous for its supposedly live broadcasts during the first Gulf War in 1991, when it sent its journalists – supposedly – to the front lines to cover the drama as it unfolded. In this broadcast, for instance, it appears as though then CNN correspondent Charles Jaco and another reporter, Charles Rochelle, were caught in a potential SCUD attack in the middle of a broadcast.
At one point in the video, viewers can hear air-raid (or, in this case, missile-raid) sirens going off. A graphic at the bottom-left of the screen says, “Saudi Arabia,” while on the bottom-right there is a graphic that says CNN Live. As the sirens wail, Jaco and the other reporter grab “air raid gear” – Jaco puts on a gas mask while Rochelle grabs a military-style Kevlar helmet (why both wouldn’t have gas masks, since then-Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had threatened to launch chemical weapons at coalition forces, is not clear – yet).
It all looks and sounds real, of course. But it’s not.
CNN is not news but infotainment at best
The next scenes feature backstage shots of the Saudi Arabia “set” – an entire news crew, complete with fake props.
Turns out Jaco, Rochelle and their crew aren’t in Saudi Arabia at all. They are on a sound set near the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, a faked broadcast that the cable news channel eventually had to quietly admit.
The video contains clips of Jaco and crew clowning around. Jaco holds up a mock SCUD missile with a rag attached to its tail that acts as a rocket “plume.” The CNN reporter goes on to joke about how “they always call an ‘all clear’” when he orders his “burger and fries.” He clowns around about other things as well.
Fast-forward to today. CNN is up to its old tricks, this time with Anderson Cooper acting as the “live, on-the-scene” reporter who is, quite obviously, somewhere else other than where he says he is.
According to radio and TV host Alex Jones, a close examination of this Cooper broadcast, in which the host claimed he was standing in front of a church in Newtown, Conn., at a funeral for one of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Just more proof that the lame stream media cannot be trusted! If you want the truth to what is going on in the world, you will not find it by flipping through the TV channels,it is infested with lies and propaganda.
