Accuracy in Media

Maybe we should give CNN half credit for not only writing about white supremacists and neo-Nazis, after the Charlottesville tragedy where a neo-Nazi sympathizer used a car to kill one woman and injured others, but allegedly reporting in-depth details about Antifa activists.

Antifa, or “anti-fascist,” is the “black bloc” movement which covers their faces and wear black clothing to become anonymous violent protesters.

CNN’s headline read, “Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement: Activists seek peace through violence,” and they interviewed activists who blamed President Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric for their violent activism.

The article noted the violent protests that Antifa participated in, ranging from the anti-Milo Yiannopoulos and anti-Ann Coulter protests at the University of California-Berkeley, destruction of property in Portland, Oregon, to name a few.

But, the article accepted their reasoning to use violence to allegedly promote peace.

So, all in all, it was a half-credit-type effort by CNN to profile Antifa and to appear balanced.
