From the conservative Washington Times:
|Sherelle Smith encourages her community to burn the suburbs of Milwaukee|
Both online and on television, CNN edited out Sherelle Smith, the sister of a black man who was killed by police in Milwaukee on Saturday, calling for rioters to take their violence “to the suburbs.”
Correspondent Ana Cabrera reported Ms. Smith was “calling for peace” in a televised segment Monday on CNN Newsroom, NewsBusters reported.
The network showed a brief clip of Ms. Smith telling protesters: “Don’t bring the violence here and the ignorance here.”
But CNN cut away before Ms. Smith called for rioters to “take that s– to the suburbs.”
“Stop burning down s– we need in our community,” Ms. Smith said in her extended remarks. “Take that s– to the suburbs. Burn they s– down. We need our s–. We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”
A CNN.com article on Monday framed the issue similarly, reporting that Ms. Smith “condemned violence carried out in her brother’s name, saying the community needs those businesses.”
