CNN accused of 'fake news' over London Bridge video

CNN has denied claims it positioned anti-extremism demonstrators behind its cameras to'create a narrative, insisting the group arrived to be seen by TV cameras

Alt-right trolls make 'nonsense' claim that CNN staged a fake protest in London

On Sunday, the day following the attack, Daily Mail's Katie Hopkins tweeted video footage of CNN's Becky Anderson standing in front of a street corner waiting for protestors to fill in before filming and narrating the shot.

CNN is calling it "nonsense" the network staged a news report of demonstrators in an effort to make Muslims appear sympathetic, the Washington Examiner reported Monday. "Sources familiar with this live shoot tell Mediaite that the protesters ('Muslim Mothers') were already very near the location and the Police simply allowed them to move behind Ms. Anderson and crew". CNN will probably be nominated for a Tony Award for the best staging of a fake news story following a REAL news story.

Mark Antro, a London-based citizen journalist, recorded the hoax and blasted it across the Twitterverse, with a humorous, yet ominous, disclaimer, "I'm going to bed".

"This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show their signs". CNN along with other media simply filmed them doing so. Now, CNN, they're vietnamly denying this saying what you can obviously see, saying, quote, "staging".

And despite several other news agencies being present, including the BBC and ITV, the user posted the caption: "CNN creating the narrative #FakeNews".

No, that is not what happened. Of course, with CNN, this IS how they manipulate the viewers into buying their brand Kool-aid.
