    Well, I submitted the allegation to Snopes and guess what

    It's not true

    The way the image was presented without a link, or a screen shot of the CNN broadcast made me suspicious. Of course you would think that "journalists" would have the same suspicions, given the lack of real evidence. But of course not, the right wing bloggers couldn't help but jump on the "racist CNN' bandwagon. :nono:

    Yeah, CNN has refused to show his picture, and rightly so.
    I just wish the other channels would do the same.
