CNN Compares Terrorism to ‘Lightning Strike’ Before Cutting to ‘Breaking’ Terror Attack

This is brilliant, and best illustrates the dichotomy between reality and the enemedia’s fantasy narrative.

Truth is the recognition of reality, and the enemedia is completely and utterly dishonest.

CNN Compares Terrorism to ‘Lightning Strike’ Before Cutting to ‘Breaking’ Terror Attack

BY: Adam Kredo, WFB, February 7, 2017:

A CNN anchor compared the abundance of terror attacks in recent years to random lightning strikes during an interview Tuesday, just before the network cut to “breaking news” of yet another terrorist attack that killed at least 20 people.

During an interview with Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.) about President Donald Trump’s move to halt immigration to the United States from countries deemed terrorism hotspots, anchor Alisyn Camerota compared the threat of terrorism to that of random lightning strikes.

Immediately following the interview, the network cut to “breaking news” about another terror attack in Afghanistan that killed at least 20 people and wounded another 50.

The comparison appeared to surprise the lawmaker and raised eyebrows among viewers on Capitol Hill, who told the Washington Free Beacon that such a statement is the reason Americans are losing faith in the journalistic establishment.

“You know that more Americans are killed by lightning strikes every year than by terrorism, so how much do you want Americans to worry here?” Camerota asked Duffy.

“Lightning may be random, but this [terrorism] is purposeful and if the government could prevent lightning from killing people, we would. But if we can prevent terror attacks, and we can, we should,” Duffy said, challenging the anchor to tell the U.S. victims of terrorism that the loss of loved ones is similar to death by lightning.

“I challenge you to have that conversation,” Duffy said.

Duffy went on to say that Trump’s temporary ban would help the administration put the security measures in place necessary to ensure terrorists do not infiltrate the refugee process.

One GOP aide who witnessed the exchange expressed surprise at the statement.

“No wonder Alisyn Camerota and CNN are bewildered why the media is not trusted by the American people—comparing radical Islamic terrorism to random lightning strikes shows how out of touch the media truly is,” the source said.

“The media doesn’t understand that fundamentally, this is about preventing terrorism,” the source added. “Not only did they remind the American people how much they’ve covered terrorism (and all of its instances), they were all too quick to jump to a terrorist attack that killed 20 people immediately after Duffy’s interview.”

    The SAN Bernardino, Fort Hood, and Orlando nightclub attacks were not random events but carefully planned deliberate attacks on unarmed targets. Camerota should be fired for such insensitivity to the victims of terrorism.

    If she had an IQ adequate enough to work in a brothel she’d be ashamed of herself but she’s not even smart enough for that.

      Camerota was HIRED fired for such insensitivity to the victims of terrorism.
      Welcome to the real world of Commie News Central, USA.

    The lame stream media has lied so often, it believes them, which results in them looking stupid at every possible opportunity.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    She’s the idiot who doesn’t believe there is vote fraud in California.

  • Sufferfortribe

    Camerota needs to come out here to San Bernardino and have a chat with us. Then we could explain to her that more people died at the hands of Farook and Malik that day than there were lightning strikes that year.

    There’s more important, principal difference between accidents and terrorism: there’s a determined, rootless enemy on the other side that wants to kill/inflict damage as much as possible. Therefore, if we are not ready/don’t prepare and counteract properly, the numbers may be innumerable. For example: a) 9/11 – total failure of preparedness and 3000 killed b) Mumbai, India 2008 attack – absolutely inadequate preparedness by Indians (they had to fly in the SWAT from Delhi!?) and 166 killed by 10 jihadis.
    These two things are clearly incomparable!

    Is there anyone….I mean ANYONE at CNN with just a fragment of what we would call a BRAIN?…..my God, these asshats are just plain STUPID!

  • Hussars2016

    I see no Islamic terrorists , no Islamic terrorists are there.
    I don’t think, therefore , they are not.
    Honey bears and teddy bears all around.

    Stupid idiots. Besides a lightning stiike may kill one or 2 people in a strike….. Terror attacks can kill 100’s in one hit…WTH

  • roflmfao! This means that CNN is behind Keith Ellison for DNC chair.

  • I stopped watching worthless Commie News Network months ago. Too much Fake News and brain dead sorry excuses they call Journalists.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Exchanges like this are evidence of why Fox News sent Alisyn Camerota’s ass packing.

  • Mark Goldberg

    Over 30,000 Islamic Jihad attacks around the world. Some 210,000 or so slaughtered and some 290,000 injured in these attacks. When the facts are so numerous and obvious, the truth becomes too much to bear for the media. It is because they are the shield of the culture and the culture will not allow any such facts to disturb it’s meme that all cultures are the same and need to be integrated under the western socialist model.

    • Mark Goldberg

      And note yesterday’s article about the muslim in Germany who went to a funeral for a german in a church and began yelling out muslim Koran verses to educate and call the christians to Islam… at a funeral! And note there was no outrage at the ‘insensitivity’ at the unbelievable ugliness of such a muslim action in a church by any of the media. None. It was mentioned and then forgotten.
      If, such had happened by a christian in a mosque, does anyone think that the occurrence would have been forgotten?? No, it would be emphasized on the bigotry of the west.

  • berserker

    There are other statistical problems with that comparison. See Taleb.
    – In any case, the problem with limitless immigration – specifically, Mohammedan – is bigger than one of simply terrorism.

  • Robert Batchelor

    No one should be watching these fools. It’s literally dangerous to your health!

  • notme123

    And how many attacks were/are being covered up?! 0 claimed Ft. Hood was work place violence.

  • RayG1

    So now the Muslim terror attacks are described as an “act of nature” like a lightning strike? I repeat: These are not sane, rational people!

  • There were 38 deaths from lightning strikes in the U.S. in 2016. There were 49 deaths at the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack. It is a lie to say you are more likely to be struck by lightning than killed by a jihadist.

    Camerota whom I watched over on Fox and Friends never expressed these brain dead remarks. She only became brain dead when moving over to CNN. I was really distressed when she attacked Pamala Geller over the Garland TX terrorist attack. I look for M. Kelly and G. Susteren to become equally brain dead. What makes a person throw their principals into the gutter? I guess it is the devil offering success and money. I will hold onto my principals..go broke, pick up start again go broke and when I go to glory my wife and children will say well done.
