CNN reporters are stunned. One, more than others, after getting hit in the head with a water bottle thrown by BLM and Antifa-linked rioters in Brooklyn City, Minnesota, on Wednesday night. In the liberal world of only peaceful protest, this didn’t happen, so the left-leaning network must be freaking out about having to report such lawless insurrection which actually affects one of their own crews.

CNN can’t believe it
The bigwig suits at CNN are having a terrible day trying to cover and not cover a story at the same time. They can’t ignore it because they’re smack in the middle, literally. This just doesn’t happen in the liberal narrative so they haven’t figured out how to spin it yet. For once, they’re sticking to the facts without any propaganda cover story.
One of their crew members, they report, “collapsed after being hit in the head by a water bottle while covering the protests over the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.” They left the word peaceful out but still won’t call it a riot. They certainly won’t call it “insurrection.” His Wisdom Joe Biden could be pulled from the throne if they did.
Part of the big problem for the Cable News Network is that rival outlet The Washington Examiner scooped them by posting video of the attack on Twitter. “Protesters threw a water bottle at a CNN crew member and hit him square on the head. They mock him when he falls down,” staff writer Nicholas Rowan posted.
The intercontinental ballistic water bottle exploded into the crew member’s skull while senior national correspondent Miguel Marquez was trying to “reason with protesters who were accosting the network’s journalists.”
The injured staffer was dazed and while struggling to recover from the unexpected blunt force trauma, someone yelled “medic!”
The entire news unit was forced to make a strategic withdrawal under fire, chased off by the mob of barbarians who even threw “eggs at them and their vehicle as they drove away.” Rowan tweeted that out too. “Protesters just chased the entire CNN crew away from the police precinct.”
The crew was okay
Soon after moving to a more secure location, Marquez notified the public that his entire CNN crew was safe. “My team and I are fine and I appreciate your concern.
I hope for equal justice under the law and will continue to report on this vital story as it unfolds.” Neither Marquez or any of his crew are talking to other reporters about the violence though.
CNN was there to report on the third night’s attempt to burn down the Brooklyn Center Police Department building. With help from outside forces including the National Guard, they managed to make some arrests, as many as “dozens.”
The mob is angry because a Black criminal who was resisting arrest was shot by a cop who meant to draw her taser. On Monday night, the first night of related riots, one of the network’s reporters was also confronted, but not assaulted.
The local residents seem to take offense at the way CNN has been covering the controversy to stir up even more violence. Of course, they put it more “colorfully” than that. “Y’all be twisting up the stories and sh*t,” one polite resident told Sara Sidner.
“All the press and all the extra sh*t y’all do makes this worse.” Media propaganda is totally to blame. You be “doing all the extra sh*t for the backhand sh*t and making people look all crazier than what the f–K they are.” As difficult as that may seem…
