Amidst the horrific news and footage that came out of Manchester last night, CNN Terror Analyst Paul Cruickshank was a reporting live on Anderson Cooper’s AC360. Live television during the earliest moments of a story such as this apparent suicide bombing are among the trickiest moments of live cable news, as the hosts and reporters are left to fill air with very little reporting and a fair amount of speculation. …
Cruickshank went out of his way to remind viewers that there may be other explanations behind the attack. “It must also be noted that in recent months in Europe, there’s been a number of false flag plots where right wing have been trying to blame Islamists for terrorism,” before adding “we have seen that in Germany in recent weeks.”
The establishment will do or say anything to protect open borders and Islam. And what false flag plots were these?? I’m confident that if they were real we would have heard all about them — because the media is very keen to trumpet any crimes by right wingers, and any terrorism that isn’t Islamic.
