Yesterday on ‚ÄúOutfront,‚ÄĚ Erin Burnett spoke with GOP Rep. Mike Turner about the developing situation between the U.S. and Iran. During the conversation, Turner brought up ‚ÄúDeath to America‚ÄĚ chants that take place not just on the streets of Iran, but in the Iranian parliament.
But Burnett didn‚Äôt really seem to think ‚ÄúDeath to America‚ÄĚ chants are all that big a deal. Based on her own personal experience, that is:
Erin Burnett just said she felt safe and among ‚Äúfriendly‚ÄĚ folks when she was in Iran surrounded by crowds shouting ‚ÄúDeath to America.‚ÄĚ They totally didn‚Äôt mean it‚Ä¶she says.

Erin Burnett on CNN: ‚ÄúI was in Tehran when they chanted ‚Äúdeath to America‚ÄĚ and it seemed like a trope to me. I don‚Äôt think they mean it. And they were very nice to me.‚ÄĚ

@ErinBurnett just implied on her show while interviewing a Congressman that chants of "Death to America" are not genuine because people at a rally I Iran were nice to her when she was present. Unbelievable.

Unbelievable ‚Ä¶ but believe it (via MRC TV):
Here‚Äôs the transcript of Burnett‚Äôs remarks, via MRC TV:
I will say ‚ÄĒ I will say I was in Tehran when they were chanting ‚ÄúDeath to America‚ÄĚ once. I was at a rally ‚ÄĒ the people couldn‚Äôt have been more friendly to me personally as an American. It sort of felt like a ‚ÄĒ it felt like a thing and a trope as opposed to anything that actually was seriously meant and considered. I understand your point, but, having been there myself, my experience was different.
Well, how nice for her.
Erin Burnett just said she‚Äôs been there in Iran when they chant Death to America and ‚Äúit‚Äôs just a trope they don‚Äôt mean it ‚Äú Lol this lady is so annoying.

That‚Äôs putting it mildly. What‚Äôs it going to take for media firefighters like Erin Burnett to just admit that the Iranian regime is horrible? Does Hassan Rouhani or Ayatollah Khamenei have to call CNN ‚Äúenemy of the people‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúfake news‚ÄĚ or something?
