CNN Rewarded With Emmy For Downplaying Violence Of Floyd Riots

CNN landed an Emmy Tuesday in the breaking news category, one of seven the network captured on night one of the News and Documentary Emmy Awards.

“Last night we won an Emmy for our breaking news coverage of the death of George Floyd alongside so many incredible teammates both in front of the camera and behind it,” wrote CNN Correspondent Omar Jimenez. “Over a year later, I look back on that period of time and still almost can’t believe it happened.”

Neither can those who followed the network’s coverage of the record-breaking riots which erupted in routine fashion all last summer.

Jimenez was the same reporter who, while standing before a car dealership in flames, spoke above a chyron reading “Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shooting.”

The network in the lead for Emmys this year was a primary culprit among legacy outlets downplaying the historic eruption of political violence that engulfed the nation’s cities last year. Meanwhile, it continues to hysterically promote the January riot at the U.S. Capitol as the worst assault on American democracy.

In August 2020, the chyron writer accidentally corrected the network television headline to describe the events in Kenosha as “Violent Protests” for 15 seconds before editing the caption to read simply “Protests.”

The network’s prime-time anchor, Chris Cuomo, showcased his own ignorance of the First Amendment in an attempt to justify the nationwide carnage that eclipsed the cost of the Capitol riot by 66 times.

“Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful,” Cuomo said in early June at the height of the turmoil.

Below the text from the First Amendment reads, emphasis ours:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
