WHAT?! CNN Pushes Worst Take EVER About New Mexico Compound – People Are Fuming

CNN is slowly sliding down the list of reputable news outlets and the newest cable television ratings show more people are turning off their channel and are instead watching the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” and the Home and Garden Network.

Not a good look for the once renowned and prestigious network.

Here’s how they are hoping to emerge from their depths: by promoting the criminal group arrested for teaching children how to facilitate shootings as a “New Mexico compound family [who] struggled with life off the grid.”

No, really:


What in the world.

Authorities raided the compound and found 11 malnourished children and the remains of a dead child. Also inside, law enforcement learned the parents were teaching the children how to conduct a school shooting. It is even being reported by Fox News that the group was planning to target a hospital:

People were not happy with CNN’s reporting. Check out this take, via Twitchy:

The article is frankly just as bad as the headline. Here’s more on how CNN frivolously described the compound:

Identity documents were mixed on the floor with children’s math workbooks, self-help guides and gun manuals. A dusty bulletproof vest lay nearby.

It had been two weeks since law enforcement raided lot 78 in Costilla Meadows, a rural subdivision in Amalia, New Mexico, where homes are off the grid and you can see your nearest neighbor miles over the dry grassland. Police found 11 malnourished children there, shoeless and in tattered clothes, and arrested five adults. Days later, they found the remains of the 3-year-old boy they were searching for.

Continued:

Residents of this sparsely populated region of northern Taos County encountered members of the black Muslim family in familiar places: the gas station, the Family Dollar, the hardware store, the body shop. Little about the family members stood out, they said, apart from their dirty clothes and their skin color, a rarity in this area primarily populated by Hispanos — descendants of Spaniards who settled in the Southwest centuries ago.

Otherwise, those who met them said they seemed friendly. A resident recalled how one of the men tenderly wiped the nose of a crying child. What little the residents knew about the compound didn’t raise eyebrows in an area where many people live “in unconventional ways,” as the judge in the case has said.

The remainder of the article describes the couple’s interaction with their neighbors and how difficult is it to live “off the grid.” This, CNN reports, is “a life that the family on the compound struggled with.”

Later in the report, CNN asked, “A danger to the community?”

We’ll let you answer that one.
