Tuesday on CNN, anchor Jake Tapper called on Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to apologize to the reporters he used in an allegedly edited video presented during the House Judiciary hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr.
Tapper said, “At the beginning. Jim Jordan of Ohio played a video featuring many upsetting images of mayhem and violence from protests and riots across the country. And that was included along with a mash-up of members of the media and others using the term peaceful protests.”
He continued, “The motive was clearly to show members of the media, including many of my CNN colleagues, calling violent protests peaceful. But Congressman Jordan neglected to give the full context of these comments. So, my team and I did it for him.”

Narratives are stubborn. Despite the evidence to the contrary in Portland & beyond - officers injured, Molotov cocktails & ammo seized, etc. - many insist the protests are “peaceful.”

This isn't journalism. This is activism. This is excusing arson, looting, rioting, and the destruction of minority-owned businesses.— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) June 1, 2020

Incredible CNN segment. Reporter says how peaceful it is in CHAZ. One of the protesters crashes the shot and tries to organize people to interrupt the report. Reporter then says “no doubt some of these protesters are armed” (contradicting CNN's report): https://t.co/FBiJaGifZR pic.twitter.com/AnQBI0QOm8— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) June 12, 2020
BOOM:@Jim_Jordan just exposed the domestic terrorists burning down our cities for all of America to see—the same terrorism Jerry Nadler wants you to believe is “a myth”— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) July 28, 2020
These are NOT peaceful protests–no matter what Democrats & the media tell you.
Democrats don’t want Attorney General Barr to speak.— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) July 29, 2020
Democrats don’t want Republican members of the Judiciary Committee to speak.
Democrats don’t want President Trump to speak.
They’ll come for you next. pic.twitter.com/IqASrFgI8I
