CBS Edits Out Gun of Black Youth Shot by Police

The “mainstream” media bears responsibility for helping to whip up the hundreds of race riots that have besieged America over the past year. To what extent will the left-wing activists who run the media blatantly deceive us to advance their destructive agenda? CBS News answers the question by editing the gun out of the hand of Adam Toledo, a black youth who was shot by Chicago police.

Fox News reports on video of Toledo and another person running from police:

Toledo stops for a moment before he turns toward the officer, at which point the cop tells him to, “Show me your f—— hands.”

Toledo appears to have his hands up when he is shot once in the chest. He ultimately died from his injuries.

Also shown in the footage is a brief glimpse of Toledo holding a gun, which he apparently discarded an instant before the fatal shot was fired.

CBS News, however, tweeted a video formatted for mobile devices. As a result, both sides of the bodycam footage were cropped and the image of Toledo holding the gun was omitted.

The impression created was that the police chased down and executed a child, when the actual story was a cop making an understandable mistake in a split-second life and death decision.

So-called journalists have gone from burying the lede to deleting it.

This is hardly out of character for CBS News, as it struggles to distinguish itself as the propaganda agency most aggressively devoted to promoting Democrats’ preferred narrative. A recent 60 Minutes smear job on Ron DeSantis was shockingly dishonest. Demonstrating that it is loyal only to the Democrat Party, not the public, CBS News arrogantly stands by the report.

Before that, CBS News was accused of full-throated “activism” after it ran a report with the headline, “3 ways companies can help fight Georgia’s restrictive new voting law.”

That law is not in the least restrictive, yet has resulted in an economic/propaganda attack on Georgia to set the stage for HR1, which would institutionalize voter fraud at the federal level so as to guarantee Democrat victory.

We might have to get used to the CBS News brand of journalism. Democrats are seizing on what they see as a window of opportunity to lock in permanent single-party rule. If they fail, there will be a backlash at the polls against their radicalism and lust for power. If they succeed, the lies told by the liberal media may be the closest thing to information that is allowed. Instead of merely getting repeatedly hamstrung by Big Tech censors, conservative media will be criminalized through laws against “hate speech” and “misinformation.” The public will be left to guess at what is really going on.

People are likely to be killed in riots incited by this sort of propaganda. That’s a price the apparatchiks at CBS News are willing to pay, so long as it helps strategically destabilize the country to facilitate the Democrat power grab. You can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
