CNN mistakes dildo flag for ISIS flag

Via New York Magazine:

Lucy Pawle, a CNN International editor who was passing the parade on her way home, was shocked to see one of the revelers, “this man, quite distinctive from the rest of the crowd,” waving “a very bad mimicry” of the black and white ISIS flag. She pointed out that while it was “clearly not Arabic,” and indeed looked like it could be “gobbledegook,” it was still “very distinctively the ISIS flag.” Noting that no one else seemed to have been alarmed by this, she subsequently informed the police.

Of course, being a Pride parade, it was in fact a delightful parody of the ISIS flag in which the Arabic was replaced with an impressive array of dildos and butt plugs. But since nobody at CNN looked closely enough to notice that, they not only ran Pawle’s report and photos of the sex-toy flag, but even brought on CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen to gravely analyze the development. He then highlighted how it was “a very strange place to be showing an ISIS flag,” since ISIS hates gays so much.

 

We’ve often said that CNN couldn’t tell its ass from a hot rock. Now they’ve upped the ante.

Those of you who watch CNN, keep in mind these are the people you are relying upon for information. Good luck with that.
