Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says he personally witnessed incident where CNN was spreading ‘fake news’

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claims he personally witnessed an incident during riots resulting from the shooting involving an officer of Michael Brown in Ferguson, in which CNN helped create ” fake news”.

Dorsey made the comments on social media, responding to a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017, Sarah Idan, who alleged “even [CNN] sometimes sell [sic] fake news.

“I know this from covering events in Iraq in 2019,” Idan continued. “People need to understand that all media is prone to error or deliberate corruption.”

Dorsey chimed in with a similar response regarding his own experience on the streets during the Ferguson Riots.

“I know this because I was on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and saw them trying to create conflict and filming it, which caused protesters to chant ‘f*** CNN’,” he replied.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tears up CNN

It’s hard to say when and where the incident discussed by former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey took place. Surely there isn’t just one incident where a crowd ended up chanting “f***CNN.”

However, we were able to dig up this clip of a Ferguson protest in New York from 2014.

Dorsey also shot CNN media room monitor Brian Stelter.

Stelter, perpetually obsessed with people more talented than himself, shared a Washington Post link accusing Fox News host Tucker Carlson of “selling doubt” to his audience.

“And you all sell hope?” Dorsey fired back.

This comment prompted a laughable response from MSNBC political commentator Elizabeth Spiers, who savagely claimed that the network that gave you the Russian conspiracy hoax, the Jussie Smollett hoax, the Nick Sandman hoax, and refused to report on the now-confirmed Hunter Biden. the laptop was actually “selling truth, which is independent of hope”.

“He’s supposed to inform you, not make you feel one way or another,” Spiers said, prompting the aforementioned exchange between Idan and Dorsey.

Dorsey’s own role in creating ‘fake news’

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s comments naturally triggered a few people — Spiers being just one — but he clarified his remarks in a subsequent tweet.

Alex Salvi, foreign correspondent for Newsmax, suggested Dorsey was “defending” Tucker Carlson.

“I’m not advocating for anything,” Dorsey replied, suggesting he was “just holding up a mirror” to Stelter and his network.

While it’s tempting to cheer Dorsey on as he eviscerates CNN for allegedly falsifying news, it should be noted that he also accused former President Donald Trump of doing the same.

The main difference being that CNN and Stelter were allowed to continue operating on its platform while Trump was banned from Twitter.

How does Jack Dorsey justify banning Trump if he personally saw CNN falsify news, stir up emotions and sow the seeds of violence in 2014?

It’s also impossible not to remember his company’s role in driving the 2020 election to Joe Biden.

The “dysfunction” of Twitter

Twitter censored and deleted posts on a New York Post article involving emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop that appeared to discuss shady business dealings with foreign entities using his father’s influence as a vice -president at the time.

The laptop’s existence has since been confirmed by multiple outlets, including The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Dorsey, however, had made a calculated and deliberate decision to censor a story damaging to a presidential candidate ahead of the 2020 election, and later admitted he was wrong to do so.

This admission took the form of a testimony before the Senate… after the election.

The 45-year-old billionaire has been on a tear lately. Dorsey also slammed Twitter’s board in response to a post questioning its handling of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s $43 billion bid to buy them out.

“Dysfunction” indeed.

Jack Dorsey still sits on Twitter’s board but plans to leave once his term expires at the 2022 shareholders’ meeting, scheduled for the end of May.
