In quite the egregious chyron fail, CNN’s live coverage on Friday of the Nice, France terror attack featured an interview with one young survivor and was deemed by the CNN graphic of having been a “Trump Rampage Survivor” hinting that he had lived to tell of a rampage carried out by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
CNN’s Legal View had been airing a serious of live and taped soundbites from those who were injured in the truck attack by a French-Tunisian man that’s left at least 84 dead (as of this writing) and hundreds injured.
For all the others both prior to and after this massive fail, all individuals were simply described as being “Truck Rampage Survivors” next to their names.
CNN then played a clip of a young man named Karim Laamara who appeared to be of Muslim ethnicity and described “many, many” “people on the ground” in a scene so horrifying that he “was trying not to look” because “it was too painful, too painful.”
However, the caption for Laamara featured a unique descriptor for his situation as it ruled he had been a “Trump Rampage Suvivor.”
There have been an endless supply of chyron fails over the years, but this one seems like it stands out above the others simply because of the connotations concerning both Trump but also the 2016 presidential election in the United States. Further, this sort of failure only paints the liberal media in an even more disparaging light.
