It’s been well over two and a half years since this narrative was debunked, but it seems The Guardian is still clinging to it:

More from the article:

An anti-Muslim film that sparked violence in the Middle East and death threats to actors was reposted to YouTube on Tuesday, a day after a federal appeals court ruled the website should not have been forced to take it down.

The roughly 14-minute trailer for Innocence of Muslims was reposted by a YouTube user.

The film sparked rioting by those who considered it blasphemous to the Prophet Muhammad. President Obama and other world leaders asked Google to take it down.

“The film sparked rioting”? Oh, puh-leeze.

Sorry, Guardian, but you’re full of B.S. and you know it.

Guess the truth just isn’t important to them.
