CNN Stands by Reporting on Capitol Officer's Death: New Ruling 'Doesn't Change What Happened'

Source: The Wrap

CNN defended its coverage of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick's Jan. 7 death on Tuesday, saying the new ruling that he died of two strokes "doesn't change what happened" during the Capitol riot.

Sicknick was on duty on Jan. 6 and defended the Capitol against a horde of then-President Donald Trump's supporters who stormed the building. Sicknick died the next day. Four other deaths are tied to the riot. Footage of him being sprayed with a chemical by some rioters was later released by the New York Times.

The Monday release of the report on his cause of death sparked a conversation about the media's original framing, with detractors saying the strokes were unrelated to the riot, so tying his death to the insurrection created a false narrative.

Fox News' Brit Hume shared a Times article about the new report on Tuesday, writing on Twitter, "One would never know from reading this anodyne report that the Times had first reported that Sicknick had been hit on the head with a fire extinguisher and had a gash in his head. That false account was widely quoted in yet another media fiasco."

No one looks good wearing brown lipstick Hume. But maybe yours is orange.

1. Would the officer had that stroke if he wasn't involved in The January 6th insurrection?

5. I look at it as: "But for the January 6 insurrection, he would not have had the strokes. "

So: agreed.

3. Brit Hume is a piece of human garbage

Does anyone believe the officer would have died minus the attacks he suffered during the insurrection?

4. Of course it does change what happened

There will be no accountability as there was today for the murderer of George Floyd.

8. Dead cop was a trumer

Dead cop was a Trump fan. My bet is the life insurance payout is better or the same with this claimed natural causes and now the Widow can make some media money pandering to the Right Wing Media.
