CNN Runs Gov. Ralph Northam Apology But Identifies Him As A Republican

CNN falsely labels Northam as ‘Republican’ during the segment on blackface-KKK yearbook photo.

CNN “mislabeled” Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam as a Republican on Friday during its segment about the Democrat’s apology for his racist 1984 medical school yearbook photo. 

The photo showed two men one dressed in blackface, the other in a KKK robe but Northam never made clear which one was him.


Cable channel CNN misidentified Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, embroiled in a scandal surrounding a decades-old racist photo, as a Republican.

The Democrat apologized Friday night for a photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that depicts him wearing either blackface or a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

But during “Anderson Cooper 360,” a chyron — the text that appears at the bottom of the screen — identifies Northam with “(R)” after his name.

The incorrect party label appears for less than 15 seconds over the apology video Northam posted to Twitter.  More

I’m not too surprised CNN got this wrong. They continually label themselves a news organization and we all know that’s a load of bull.

CNN is the network that promotes the hashtag #FactsFirst, but what a joke. CNN peddles Fake News. Yet another example of how clueless they really are!
