The multistate manhunt for the Easter Day killer, Steve Stephens, is still underway. Every American continues to wait on edge for this cold blooded killer to be caught, especially those living in and around Cleveland, Ohio where he committed his heinous crime on an innocent elderly man enjoying a Sunday afternoon stroll. As the media continues coverage of this horrifying ordeal, CNN just screwed themselves for what was seen on their screen during a live broadcast.
The only thing that could make this unthinkable event worse, is what the news station decided to do when they broadcasted it. They not only perpetuated their reputation of dishonesty and bias, but they put everyone’s lives at risk with the big favor they gave to this killer currently on the loose.
It’s imperative in cases where any crime has been committed and when law enforcement needs the public’s help to find the suspect, that an accurate description of the culprit and photo is released. This not only makes nabbing the criminal faster, but it keeps the public safe. When people know who to look out for, they can call 911 after realizing who is in their path and before the suspect sees them, preventing this person from taking out more victims. CNN apparently didn’t see the importance of this, deciding to protect the killer in the worst way possible.
Skin color is a key factor in any description, but rather than describing Stephens as a black male, CNN eliminated that identifying factor altogether, along with his picture. Other descriptive facts were provided and when updated later, they included Stephens’ picture, but still failed to note he’s a black male. Later, a second image emerged online which purported to be a screen image from Fox 8’s report and description of the suspect that raised some eyebrows.
Fox 8 News provided a similar list to CNN’s of details about Stephens, eliminating his skin color as well, in what seems to be an obvious attempt to convince people of something different than our own eyes can clearly see — a large black male weighing 224 pounds. As the investigation into Stephens’ whereabouts progressed, an image from this broadcast began to circulate which had a line added to the top about his race, noting that he’s not white, or black, but “dark white.” However, it may not be all that it seems since Gizmodo is reporting that the photo was photoshopped with that description, adding a before and after image of the broadcast.
Both network’s lack of race description seems to be a clear attempt to make this crime about a personal agenda and not a matter of public safety. What adds to that disgusting tactic is the outrage from others over the suggestion that Stephens is Muslim, given the signature style of his facial hair. While there were facts that backed this claim up, namely that he had routinely visited an Islamic mosque, some were more enraged over this, than they were about the reluctance to put his skin color in the details by these two stations.
The protection of Stephens, who is actively being sought out by all ranks of law enforcement, continued through the single statement his ex-girlfriend made on the matter. As we reported earlier, her description of him was, “Steve really is a nice guy… he is generous with everyone he knows. He was kind and loving to me and my children.”
“The utterly irresponsible reporting indicates exactly how out-of-touch news agencies have become,” Angry Patriot Movement reported. “Providing news is a vital service and we require accurate information to maintain our safety. CNN has proven they will put their narrative before the truth.”
Despite all that we saw of this black man who live-streamed himself killing an elderly black man, we’re supposed to take media and the ex’s word for it that Steve Stephens is a nice, loving guy who may or may not be black. It’s a good thing that state marshals and the FBI aren’t going off this ridiculous description since Stephens would have killed a number of others before this ruthless black murderer is ever arrested.
It’s bad enough to lie and twist reports for their own agenda on a regular basis, but to do so in a life and death situation is completely irresponsible. Hopefully, this is the final straw that will wake people up to what’s going on at these liberal propaganda networks and make them change the channel.
