New York, NY – As if it’s not bad enough that Muslim immigrants are turning our pickup trucks into weapons of mass destruction, the mainstream media, in what can only be described as a blatant “whitewashing” of actual events has downplayed the color of the Islamic terrorist’s skin as well as the Muslim war cry he shouted when he committed the cowardly attack. On Tuesday, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, a Muslim immigrant from Uzbekistan, home to the Islamic extremist organization – the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan – drove a truck onto a popular cycling lane in New York City, killing 8 and injuring 11.
Immediately following the attack in New York City, CBS reported an exclusive picture of the terrorist Saipov.

The only problem with the picture of the terrorist provided by CBS is that his skin tone was deliberately lightened to give the Islamic terrorist an impression of “whiteness”. The real picture of Saipov, with no filters or enhancements is seen on below on the left.
Normally this might be one of those things to pass off as accidental, or part of rushing a story to the headlines. However, the image on the left (the raw image) was immediately available and would have required no work to release, whereas the image on the right, which has obviously been doctored would have required work to reduce the resolution as well as to lighten the skin tone.
To make matters worse, it was reported by eye-witnesses and confirmed by law enforcement that during the attack, Saipov yelled “Allahu Akbar!” the rallying war cry used by Islamic terrorists or militants before an attack. Yet when CNN reported it, they deliberately left out this detail, characterizing it instead as “God is great!” However, the literal translation of the Islamic rallying war cry was clearly intended to blunt the effect of the Islamic terrorist attack. CNN also refused to share a description of the New York City terror suspect, despite other networks already broadcasting photos as well as descriptions of the Islamic terrorist. It was only until law enforcement officials confirmed that a note pledging allegiance to the Islamic State was found on the truck which Saipov had used to kill innocent New Yorkers, that CNN finally relented and called a spade a spade.
It is finally sinking through. 46% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE MAJOR NATIONAL NEWS ORGS FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT ME. FAKE NEWS, even worse! Lost cred.

The mainstream media, despite being called out repeatedly by President Donald Trump as “fake news” continues to pedal subtle propaganda to further its left-wing agenda, through its use of innuendo, selective presentation of facts as well as carefully chosen news items to cover all add fuel to President Trump’s charge of a biased media. Whilst a functioning democracy requires a free press, efforts by the mainstream media to alter public opinion through the systemic use of propaganda tools can only seek to contribute further to its already dismal levels of trust by the public. At last count, 46 percent of Americans believe that news reported by the mainstream media is fake, at what point does it become 100 percent?
