In a battle to try to out-fake Jim Acosta and CNN, CBS upped the ante of fake news by trying to angle a national story to pin violence on Trump supporters.

“In Portland, a massive demonstration by a right wing group turned violent,” are the first words out of Reena Ninan‘s mouth during a CBS Weekend News report on the dueling protests.

This would be true except none of the violence came from the “right wing” Trump supporting Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys. The clashes and violence were between the police and the Antifa instigators who showed up to start fight.

Ninan stumbled ahead by saying, “Police used tear gas to break up several small scuffles between and some anti fascists. Tensions were high as an officer tried to take a sign away from a woman. He ended up shoving her to the ground. When she got up and ran away, she was swarmed by several other officers.”

This would also be true except the biased Reena Ninan neglects to mention that the tear gas was directed toward the communists of Antifa, and the woman in question was one of the commies. Nina then passes the story off to Portland local reporter Jennifer Dowling of KOIN6.

Dowling’s report at least has a semblance of dignity and truth, as she focuses most of the story on antifa. But she leaves it a little fuzzy by saying, “You can see here police charging protesters who would not obey orders to disperse, and made some arrests.” They also threw in the sound-byte from the police LRAD of “Protesters throwing projectiles including rocks and bottles” and Dowling continues by talking about how police confiscated weapons and shot tear gas and flash grenades to break up the protesters.”
