Oh sorry, that was back in May of 2008, when CNN built “the Wright-Free Zone” to protect Obama’s presidential bid when he tossed Rev. Wright under the bus. The rest of the world doesn’t get that kind of helpful service from Time-Warner-HBO.
“CNN Releases Photo, Personal Info Of Filmmaker,” Breitbart.com’s Larry O’Connor notes today, also noting that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula took great effort to conceal his identity when being hauled away by police this weekend:
CNN acknowledged this fact and then went on to show a picture of Nikoula as well as reveal information that they boastfully said they “dug up” on the filmmaker. CNN went on to editorialize by saying the film would be “Oscar worthy, if HATEFUL were a category.” This continues CNN’s long history of going beyond reportage of “facts,” as they pretend to do, and actual advocacy for the agenda of America’s enemies. Former Chairman Ted Turner was famous for his support of the Soviet Union during the cold war and CNN gained exclusive access to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq while staying silent about many of the regime’s atrocities they witnessed.
One wonders if CNN would have done all this digging on author Salmon Rushdie when he was first threatened with a fatwah in 1989. At the time, Rushdie was celebrated and hailed as a courageous artist for penning “The Satanic Verses” which radical Islamists found so offensive Rushdie was sentenced to death in absentia in Iran.
Hey, that’s different — just ask Rushdie himself.
