(Liberty Bell) – After CNN was just exposed as the propaganda-pushing, disinformation machine we all know they are, you’d think all the other leftist sycophant networks would want to be on their best behavior.
You’d be wrong, however.
It turns out that the other establishment media outlets are just going to continue pushing fake news, false narratives and sensationalized propaganda until each and every one of them are called out and exposed.
It looks as though it’s CBS News’ turn now.
After the tragic and deadly shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago, CBS News made the decision to run edited video footage from the incident which essentially portrays Toledo complying with police orders and crops out footage of the Latino boy holding a gun.
CBS is attempting to frame the incident as if police shot an innocent unarmed teen.
Video footage from the officer’s body cam released by the Chicago Police Department shows the police officer exiting his squad car and running after the boy through a dark alley.
Another suspect disappears from view as the officer shouts, “Police! Stop! Stop right [expletive] now! Hands! Hands! Show me your [expletive] hands!”
As the boy turns and raises his hands, the officer shouts, “Drop it!” and shoots his weapon.
Amid the grief and outrage over the deadly shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago, CBS News is facing criticism for video posted on Twitter that crops out brief footage of the Latino boy holding a gun.
A clip from the officer’s body cam released by the Chicago Police Department shows the policeman exiting his squad car and chasing the boy down a dark alley as another suspect disappears from view.
The officer shouts: “Police! Stop! Stop right [expletive] now! Hands! Hands! Show me your [expletive] hands!”
The boy turns and raises his hands, and the officer shouts “Drop it” and fires his weapon.
After the shooting, police officers shine a light on a handgun behind the wooden fence that was thrown there by Toledo. In an effort to deceive and manipulate Americans, CBS tweeted a video of the incident that was formatted for mobile devices in which both sides of the video are cropped resulting in the image of Toledo holding the gun being omitted.
Of course, CBS does not provide a disclaimer or any further clarification on the video.
The CBS tweet said: “Newly released bodycam footage shows Chicago police chasing and fatally shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo, as he appeared to comply with orders to raise his hands.”

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out CBS’s framing of the story and posted two images side-by-side exposing CBS’s editing deceit.

Americans on social media were offended and outraged by CBS’s attempts to manipulate viewers’ perception of the event.
Regardless of how anyone feels about this shooting. Right or wrong. Justified or not. EVERYONE should be outraged that it was purposefully edited to elicit a desired response from us. If we don’t wake up to what they’re doing, we’re gonna tear ourselves apart. Smarten TF up.

I was so appalled at this video when I first saw it… then remembered this is CBS and low and behold the video has been edited. The right side of the screen has been narrowed ever since slightly.. in the unedited Version this man has a gun in his right hand https://t.co/pvZz1TuONb

Naturally, Toledo is becoming the next BLM martyr despite the fact that he was holding a deadly weapon prior to being shot and the President of the Chicago Police Union alleged Toledo was a member of the Latin Kings gang.
