(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Despite undeniable evidence that the gunman who was attempting to assinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was armed, leftist media outlet CNN spent three full hours to come to terms with that fact, the Media Research Center reported.
CNN law-enforcement correspondent Whitney Wild was particularly guilty as she blatantly ignored—or even denied—reports that the potential assassin was armed with a gun, a knife and pepper spray.
Instead, she suggested that he may not have been threatening at all.
“Very little detail at this point,” Wild told host Kate Bolduan. “We don’t yet know what the nature of the threat was. We don’t know what language the threat was or what kind of weapon this man might have had, if he had one at all, because the information at this point is just so thin.”
Wild was in the midst of her claim as a message scrolled across the chyron at the bottom of the screen stating, “Man with weapon detained near Justice Kavanaugh’s home.”
Even fellow mainstream-media hacks NBC even recognized that the fact that the assassin was carrying weapons was too blatant to deny.
NBC justice correspondent Pete Williams said the hour before that “he was armed with a gun, a knife, and pepper spray and told authorities that he was there to kill the Justice.”
Of course, the facts of the case did not matter at all to Wild, who had tweeted earlier that day suggesting that the assassin was armed.
