TWO DAYS LATER: CNN Has Still Not Done A Story About Farzad Fazeli Who Attempted To Stab Republican Candidate

It has been two days since a man named Farzad Fazeli tried to stab Republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switchblade and CNN has still not covered the story.

Peter Hasson posted this report at the Daily Caller yesterday:


More than 24 hours after authorities announced the arrest of a California man who allegedly tried to stab a Republican congressional candidate, CNN has yet to inform its audience of the story.

Farzad Fazeli, 35, allegedly made disparaging remarks about the Republican Party before pulling out a switchblade and attempting to stab Rudy Peters at a festival Sunday, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office…

But by Wednesday evening, CNN had published zero articles on the attempted stabbing. A Daily Caller News Foundation review of CNN’s on-air coverage Tuesday and Wednesday found zero segments informing viewers of the attack.

As of this morning, there’s still nothing. See the screen cap below:

Do you think CNN would ignore this story if the political roles were reversed? Imagine if a Trump supporter tried to stab a Democrat candidate for Congress. Does anyone believe CNN would ignore that? They would likely turn it into a lead story and run it for days.
