It takes a lot to get me truly outraged. I don’t necessarily have anger-management issues, but I try to keep my cool at all times, even when I’m upset over something. The lack of coverage of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant’s murder has me absolutely outraged to the point I could barely finish recording the latest episode of Conservative News Briefs.
The young boy was riding his bicycle with his two sisters when he went onto a neighbor’s lawn. That neighbor, Darius N. Sessoms, 25, allegedly walked up to the child and shot him in the head with a firearm. He is in custody. This is big news that goes beyond local coverage. At least it should. It’s being picked up around the world by major news outlets like The Independent in the United Kingdom. But in the United States where it happened, the big mainstream media outlets other than Fox News are completely ignoring it.
Why? Because Hinnant was a young Caucasian boy and his suspected murderer is Black. If the situation were different and a Black boy was killed by a Caucasian man, this would be the biggest story across the board on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, and all the other leftist mainstream media rags. Instead, we’re hearing a deafening silence. None of them have even mentioned Cannon Hinnant’s name other than in local affiliate broadcasts.
This is 100% about the Black Lives Matter movement. They won’t report it just like they won’t report murders in Chicago that are predominantly committed against Black men by Black men. It’s why they wont’ report violence in leftist cities like Portland or Seattle because it’s violence in the name of Black Lives Matter; to mainstream media, they’re just “mostly peaceful protesters.” They have an agenda that combines their allegiance to the Democratic Party and their embrace of the Neo-Marxist push by Black Lives Matter.
There is nothing more racist that mainstream media can do than to ignore a story about a child’s murder because he didn’t fit their agenda. CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, and WaPo are evil. Cannon Hinnant. Say his name.
