Jason Rantz lashes out at CNN for Waukesha tweet: that’s why we don’t trust them

Seattle radio host Jason Rantz tore up CNN on Monday after the network was scanned for a tweet that appeared to blame last week’s Waukesha parade attack on Darrell Brooks’ SUV without mention of the career criminal suspect.

“Democrats like to focus on the gun when they don’t want to make criminals bad guys when that kind of criminal goes against the narrative they miss,” Rantz said during an appearance on “The Faulkner Focus. “

Rantz asserted that the media are quick to deflect criminal blame when it suits their agenda, citing activists and media who blamed retail theft in San Francisco on poverty and gun gang violence instead. than criminals.

“Darrell Brooks can’t be the center of attention because he’s not a white supremacist,” Rantz added before pointing out the clear difference in media coverage between Darrell Brooks and Kyle Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse, 17, was branded a murderer and white supremacist by various media and media figures, including CNN, before the Illinois teenager was acquitted of all charges in November. Numerous media outlets also misunderstood the key facts of the case, including the false claim that Rittenhouse crossed state borders with a weapon.

“Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist with intent to kill. It was not the weapon. Darrell Brooks, we ignore him, we ignore his opinions, we ignore his criminal history which was made possible by the light of left on criminal policies and then we focus on the SUV, and sure enough people ask CNN “why don’t people trust us?” Well, look at your tweets, ”Rantz said.

CNN became the center of the social media backlash on Sunday after a tweet suggested Brooks’ SUV was responsible for the massacre that left six people dead and dozens injured.
