Fake News CBS is at it again.

CBS on Thursday got roasted for posting a race-baiting, anti-police headline with the intention of fanning the flames to stoke racial tensions.

“Deputies kill half-brother of black man found hanged in park” CBS said in its headline.

Deputies kill half-brother of black man found hanged in park

Robert Fuller’s half-brother was stopped just north of L.A. by deputies tracking him for numerous alleged crimes including kidnapping and opened fire, authorities said.

There is a lot to unpack here.

First of all, the ‘black man founding hanging in a park’ was believed to be a suicide.

CBS’s headline was designed to push the idea that a black man in California was lynched.

Second of all, the ‘half-brother who was killed by deputies’ actually opened fire on the police officers.

Per the CBS News article (emphasis our own):

The half-brother of a black man found hanged in a Southern California park was killed by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies Wednesday after, they say, he opened fire on them.

Detectives with the sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit were tracking a man who was wanted for kidnapping, spousal assault and assault with a deadly weapon but when they tried to stop his car, he opened the door and began shooting, authorities said.

CBS got roasted.

READ THE ARTICLE. This is the type of media click bait headline civil people in a civil society should call out. Where’s twitter support? I thought they were in charge of flagging misleading content. Publisher? …platform? No wonder the public at large is confused.
