Default CNN falsely labels Northam as 'Republican' during segment on blackface-KKK yearbook p

The "Facts First" network, aka CNN, called Northam a "Republican" while talkin' 'bout the KKK/blackface yearbook controversy.

CNN falsely labels Northam as 'Republican' during segment on blackface-KKK yearbook photo flap

Quote:
CNN -- the network that promotes the hashtag #FactsFirst -- mislabeled embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam as a Republican on Friday during a segment about the Democrat's apology for his racist 1984 medical school yearbook photo.

The photo showed two men holding beers -- one dressed in blackface, the other in a KKK robe -- but Northam never made clear which one was him.


The CNN chyron that mistakenly called Northam a Republican aired Friday during "Anderson Cooper 360," the nightly show hosted by Anderson Cooper. The segment focused on a video in which Northam apologized for the nearly 35-year-old photograph.

Haven't you heard about the Southern Strategy? Every Southerner accused of racism is automatically deemed a Republican. Northam may be a lifelong Democrat but all racism is Republican so he must be one of "them."

Of course it was an accident. It's CNN. They would never intentionally lie.
