“Police have charged a 25-year-old man with first-degree murder after they say he shot and killed a 5-year-old boy last week in Wilson, North Carolina.
Austin Hinnant told CNN affiliate WRAL he was inside the home when his son, Cannon, was playing outside and was shot.
Hinnant says he ran outside and scooped up the injured child and held him in his arms.
‘I screamed “somebody help me, please help me save my son,”’ he said.
Hinnant told the affiliate he looked up and saw his neighbor, Darius Sessoms, in the yard next door with a gun in hand, pacing and frantic.
‘I was looking at him as I was picking up Cannon, and I was so full of rage, but I could not leave my son's side,’ he said. ‘I just wanted to be with my son.’
Hinnant's fiancé called 911, he said, and Sessoms drove away.
In a news release, the Wilson Police Department said officers were dispatched to the 5100 block of Archers Road on August 9 in reference to a shooting and found a 5-year-old suffering a gunshot wound, who later died at a nearby hospital.
Police identified Sessoms as a suspect and arrested him after he was found Monday in a Goldsboro residence about 30 minutes south of Wilson. It is unclear if Sessoms has an attorney.”
This is literally all CNN had to say about Cannon Hinnant. Roughly one week after the gruesome and heartless execution of the 5-year-old child, after multiple conservative outlets had already covered it and after multiple conservative accounts started the trend of “#SayHisName” in reference to the little boy, one mainstream news outlet (that’s not Fox News) has finally come around to begrudgingly talk about Cannon Hinnant.
Well, sort of.
Allow me to explain. What you just read above came from CNN INTERNATIONAL. Not even the main branch of CNN quite talked about it, just the international branch.
So that’s one ghastly and disgusting aspect of this scenario. The other is the fact that that entire excerpt amounts to only 222 words. That’s local news level coverage. That’s not even close to what I usually write or what other news outlets usually write about anything.
There is an article on CNBC about a mall owner acquiring denim retailer Lucky out of bankruptcy for $140.1 million. That article has a higher word count than CNN International’s article about Cannon Hinnant. Who the hell cares about a mall owner acquiring a denim company, other than the people involved in the deal and possibly the investors in those companies? Well, seemingly, more people on the fake news media care more about that random story than about the EXECUTION of a 5-year-old. This should be sickening, regardless of the races involved in the story.
Just for reference, CNN has 1,709 stories that mention George Floyd by name. For every word in that Cannon Hinnant article, there are EIGHT STORIES about George Floyd.
CNN also has 1,204 stories that mention Trayvon Martin. For every word in the Cannon article, there are five and a half stories that talk about Trayvon Martin.
CNN has 148 stories about attempted cop-killer Rayshard Brooks. For every word in the Cannon article, there are 0.66 articles about Brooks.
CNN has 73 stories about whiny, attention-seeking NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, who faked a hate crime by pretending a garage door pull was a racist noose. CNN talked far more at length about this hoax than Cannon Hinnant.
So not only did it take CNN nearly a week to cover a horrific story that you and I both know perfectly well they would’ve covered as soon as they got a whiff of it had the races been reversed (a white man executing a 5-year-old black child), and not only did it take their INTERNATIONAL branch to begrudgingly talk about it, but they could not even spare 300 words, minimum, to talk about it.
Notice also that at no point in the story do they mention the races of the people involved. In the actual article, they have a picture of Sessoms, so those who read it will see that the suspect is black, but they don’t, at all, mention that Cannon is white.
This, again, you and I both know, would NEVER be the case if the races were reversed. This story, especially the races involved, would be ALL we would talk about for the next month, and likely even to election day.
If we had heard a story of a 25-year-old crazy bastard of a white man EXECUTING an innocent 5-year-old black boy in front of his two older sisters, supposedly for riding his bike over the white man’s lawn, people would have lost their MINDS. While there are still riots going on since George Floyd’s death, this story would have led to even more riots, and maybe even worse ones than what we saw.
The fake news media made the Trayvon Martin a national story. Like I said in the first article covering the Cannon Hinnant story, Trayvon’s name is ingrained in the minds of this nation. We remember his name roughly 8 years after his death. Despite the fact that Trayvon was the aggressor in that situation, his story gets remembered and told and retold whenever issues of race are brought up JUST because he was a black kid killed by someone who was only HALF white. The media does not extend the same courtesy to a 5-year-old white child who is gruesomely and unjustifiably executed by an evil s.o.b. of a neighbor who happens to be black.
It's not even like Cannon having been black would have made much of a difference to the fake news media.
Remember Secoriea Turner? The 8-year-old child who was killed by BLM terrorists who occupied the burned-down Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was justifiably killed by police? CNN only has 10 stories about her.
The first one covering the story has to do with Atlanta’s mayor talking about the incident. Had she not brought it up, CNN wouldn’t have covered the story.
The next three stories they wrote about it had more to do with overall crime, more specifically, what they called “gun crime” and “gun violence”, blaming guns in America as opposed to DOMESTIC TERRORISTS CAUSING CRIME ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO SKYROCKET BECAUSE OF LIMP-STICK DEMOCRAT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS NOT DOING A THING TO PROTECT THE CITIES AND STATES THEY RUN!
The last article that CNN ran that mentioned Turner’s name was in July 16th (as of this article going live). Meanwhile, they are still trudging out stories that mention George Floyd.
The reason for CNN not covering the death of an 8-year-old black girl is because of just who was responsible: the very people that CNN roots for and covers for. A black BLM terrorist killed that girl. CNN lies for, covers for and gaslights for BLM terrorists. CNN does not cover black-on-black crime.
This is why I say that, even if Cannon had been black, CNN wouldn’t have talked about it because his killer was black. How many other black men kill black kids that hardly, if at all, get covered by the mainstream media? That number is infinitesimally smaller than the stories they write about ONE instance of a black man dying seemingly at the hands of a white person or a white cop.
Again, they have mentioned Floyd’s name in nearly 2,000 DIFFERENT ARTICLES. They have mentioned Trayvon’s name in 1,200 different articles. They mentioned Brooks in roughly 150 articles so far.
8-year-old Secoriea Turner, meanwhile, only gets 10 articles, at least 30% of which are meant to attack guns and blame guns, as opposed to radical Leftist terrorists. And 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant gets ONE article that one could read multiple times while riding in an elevator.
Meanwhile, other fake news outlets have not even talked about Hinnant at all, so I suppose I should give CNN SOME credit for finally kinda sorta talking about Cannon Hinnant in passing. That was their “there, we talked about the kid, now leave us alone” article. Their “there, we covered what you were pestering us about” article.
They don’t care about journalistic integrity or truth. Like I said, a white person being the victim of a black person runs contrary to the Leftist narrative of white people being oppressive and dominant over black people. At this point, I’m rather surprised they don’t cover these stories through the lens of black people “fighting back” against their “white oppressors” but I think we are still a bit away from that level of moral bankruptcy, even from the Leftist fake news.
To rephrase my ending note in the first article covering Cannon’s story: the fake news media’s treatment of this story tells us everything we need to know about them. Evil bastards, the lot of them.
