Accuracy in Media

Ignoring recent events, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked if using a vehicle as a mass casualty-inflicting attack vehicle was a “copycat” of the Charlottesville tragedy, where a neo-Nazi sympathizer used his car to run over counter-protesters.

Here’s what Blitzer said:

“There will be questions about copycats. Questions, if what happened in Barcelona, was at all, at all, a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia,” Blitzer said. “Even though they may be different characters and different political ambitions, they use the same killing device. A vehicle going at high speed a group, a large group, of pedestrians.”

However, Blitzer seemingly forgot about the motivations of the alleged Barcelona terrorist suspect, which was radical Islam and possible anti-Semitism. He also forgot that the Bastille Day terrorist attack in Nice, France, where a terrorist used a truck to run over civilians, in addition to an attack in London close to British Parliament and a Berlin market attack were perpetrated by a radical Islamist terrorist. Those are only three examples of recent vehicular terrorism attacks by radical Islamist terrorists, not white supremacists or neo-Nazis, in case Blitzer forgot those attacks.

Please check your facts next time, Wolf Blitzer.

    Yes of course it was. Considering Yahoo News didn’t even mention the terror attacks this morning on their online home page. Let’s consider all the neo Nazi flags and KKK emblems in the crowd from the tragic pictures of Barcelona.

    It was Trump’s fault right Wolf ? You loser!!!

  • Paul Anderson

    The “Wolf” has come down with rabies, and has lost his mind: Who in his/her right mind, takes this foolish talking serious.

    These people on the left are deranged and delusional.

    How pathetic. Maybe it’s time for him to study the tactics of Goebbels and emulate them. That’ll do wonders for CNN.

  • gene456

    Is he freaking SERIOUS?!? My God, these people are absolutely SICK!!!

  • Rich Schmidt

    ISIS claims responsibility. Perps are known to be political radical left. Killed a act at “demonstration” Threatening violence. In most ways the events are clearly independent.
    Now Wolf makes startlingly (and silly) deduction: both assailants used automobiles as weapons.
    Thisman claims to be a reporter/journalist?

    Enjoy your bubble, Wolf Blitzed.

    And the Muslim vehicle attack in Sweden which tore a young girl in two. Pravda has nothing on CNN.

    OMG, at least if they were stupid i’d be ok, but they are willfully lying and deceiving. Wold Blitzer has just destroyed whatever trace of credibility me might have had (probably none at this point though) Shame on you CNN and Blitzer.
    I guess since Blitzer eats corn, and a pig eats corn, we can infer he is a pig, there, just using his logic 🙂

    That GOAT-FACED leftwing garbage bag Wolf Blitzface is a POS LIAR –like the rest of ‘his kind’—schumer, schiff, weinstein, tapper, todd–sickening anti-American traitors who’d sell their soul for less than 30 pieces of silver.

    Blitzer has to be a numb nut. Either that or he is woefully ignorant, maybe a bit of both.

    From 2014: Palestinians are being urged to run over Israelis with their cars, as a campaign gathers pace on social media.
