CNN is in Trouble…Again

CNN is under fire from conservatives on Twitter after writing a headline that grossly mischaracterized the cause of the Joseph Tomb building fire in Nablus. The fire was caused by Palestinian rioters, though you could hardly tell from CNN’s coverage.

See for yourself:

Twitter pounced on the misleading headline, and some pointed out the difference in coverage between CNN and Fox News:

The mainstream media has traditionally held the power of defining and influencing public opinion. Luckily, the rise of social media has democratized the delivery of information to the masses, and citizens are empowered to correct the record when reporters get it wrong.

While CNN did clarify the cause of the fire in their story, they should have known better.
