The liberal mainstream media have worked to paint President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, conservative new media and the entirety of the so-called “alt-right” as anti-Semites. However, a chyron CNN ran during a story about the alt-right showed its massive hypocrisy.
The phrase included in the chyron read, “If Jews are People.”
On Monday, CNN’s program,”The Lead with Jake Tapper” was hosted by Jim Sciutto and featured a segment about the alt-right with two media correspondents there to discuss the anti-Semitism the liberal media have decided to attribute to those who disagree with them.
The correspondents were asked about whether or not Trump should condemn the alt-right, and Sciutto called the alt-right’s rhetoric “hate-filled garbage.”
A quote from Richard Spencer, a white supremacist whom the media have disturbingly decided to give a great deal of attention to as the self-proclaimed leader of the alt-right, was read on air.
The quote read: “One wonders if these people are people at all, or instead soulless golem.”
In the segment that was made to look as if they were decrying anti-Semitism — with the real goal of giving unnecessary attention to a small group of awful human beings and making it seem as if they represented all of the alt-right — CNN thought it appropriate to run a chyron that read: “Alt-right leader questions if Jews are people.”

Viewers quickly noticed what CNN did and condemned it on social media. Even Jake Tapper, who had the day off, had to come forward and condemn the chyron, according to the U.K. Independent.
Tapper tweeted: “I’m off today but that chyron is unacceptable and I immediately called my staff to convey that.”

Apparently CNN got so overwhelmed by all the garbage they have been peddling about Bannon, conservative new media and the supposed “alt-right” that they missed such an obviously offensive chyron.
CNN has run numerous slanderous stories that have strongly insinuated Bannon’s connection to “white nationalism” and in some cases out-and-out accused him of it.
It is certainly difficult to keep lies straight for the most egregious purveyors of fake news in the world — the liberal mainstream media.
