We’re starting to think one of the mandatory requirements for working at CNN is being an extremely annoying, biased, mealy-mouthed little toad. Hey, it worked for Jim Acosta, Brian Stelter, and Chris Cuomo … so it should work for Daniel Dale too, right?
This is a lie. Protesters did not storm Iowa’s Capitol…they had a permit, they went through security, the building is open to the public. Per Des Moines Register, the one arrest was of a high school student an officer claimed “pushed my arm in an attempt to gain my attention." pic.twitter.com/ajexIPOtZc

Yeah yeah yeah, CNN is gonna CNN … but this was embarrassing even for them.
Ryan Saavedra called Daniel out:
1. This CNN blogger is lying
2. Why is he targeting Asian reporters? https://t.co/Pf7yHjZzTs

As did a bunch of other people.
Daniel, the permit isn’t legally valid when they refuse to leave upon being ordered and attack cops. Anymore “fact-checks” you’d like to drop?

Lots of it.
But you know, Daniel works for CNN so narrative trumps facts, even if those facts are produced in a video that ANYONE can watch.
"Mostly peaceful", you show pictures of people when subdued and ignore the video record of the fighting.
Your industry has a bad habit of lying right at us, calling a cities on fire "party atmosphere". You aren't successfully fooling anyone, you just reassure your fellow liars.

Awww yes, remember when they told us the riots over the summer were mostly peaceful as they stood in front of burning buildings?
Since you’ve been such a strait shooter these past four years, I’m sure we can just take your word for it… pic.twitter.com/8MgdHmcDa7

Andy fired back and boom:
Stop lying to your followers. Here is the video. Their permit was no longer valid once they failed to obey lawful orders from officers inside the Capitol. https://t.co/Qbw9n0EWAt

This is a lie, Danny boy

Lol – Really? They had a permit for assault?
Petty sure you're lying here, dunce.

Permit for assault?
You are promoting Asian hate. Red x’s on Asians. Do you want someone to kill or attack an Asian

And yes, there is actually a video.
Yesterday, Black Lives Matter protesters stormed the Iowa State Capitol to try and “kill” legislative bills they opposed (their event was called “Kill the racist bills”). Josephine Mulvihill was arrested & charged with assaulting an officer. pic.twitter.com/lawlNcnK7y

But you know, don’t you dare believe your lying eyes!
