The CNN feed-cut is something that’s been elevated to an art form during the past few years. Every time something inconvenient pops up on air, it’s time to go away from it posthaste — no matter how bad it looks.
We found that out yet again this weekend when the least trusted name in news covered the pro-Trump “Mother of All Rallies” (a rally which had already received less attention than a nearby gathering of Insane Clown Posse fans — or “Juggalos” — protesting their treatment at the hands of law enforcement) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
CNN found Diante Johnson, the president and CEO of the Black Conservative Federation, in the crowd and decided to interview him about something CNN had spotted on a shirt at the rally. However, it didn’t exactly go as planned, and ended with them appearing to censor what he was saying.
“I (have seen) one shirt that said ‘no white guilt,’ things like that,” CNN asked Johnson. “I mean, there have been some messages that might not be that open to folks from diverse perspectives. What would your message be to folks like that?”
“When it comes to ‘no white guilt,’ I agree with that, I actually just made a post about it on my page and a video about it,” Johnson said.
“There are some White Americans that feel guilty for what their ancestors did, you know, this and that, and the thing about it is, they shouldn’t have to feel guilty, this is America –”
And even though the video shows him still talking, it cuts right there. You can almost hear the director in the control room shouting, “Cut the video! Cut the video!” Maybe it was done because of time constraints, but unless you were concerned about maintaining narrative, that seemed to be the most interesting part of what Johnson had to say, all in response to the most loaded question of the interview.
“Certainly, an interesting perspective there from an African-American who supports Donald Trump and is here today,” the reporter can be heard saying.
Johnson had made it clear beforehand that he stood for unity, an important point that the media seems to miss. Instead of viewing people as human beings, the left constantly treats the American polity as if it were a huge identity pool where factions need to be pitted against one another.
This man wasn’t buying it. Neither should you. It’s time we made it clear as a country that racially-motivated guilt makes as much sense as racially-motivated stereotypes.
