As we and others reported Monday, Vanessa Trump, the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump, was taken to a hospital after opening a letter which contained an unknown white powder. The incident sparked controversy as liberals piled on with their trademark hate. Media analyst and author Mark Dice responded by saying CNN holds what he called a “huge portion of responsibility” for inciting the perpetrator who sent the letter.
“I think CNN holds a huge portion of responsibility for inciting the terrorist who sent the white powder to Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump’s apartment,” he tweeted. “Their constant stream of fake news, I believe, largely factored into pushing the psycho over the edge.”

He followed that up with a statement that — at least in his opinion — the network is inciting violence against the Trumps.
CNN’s @JeffreyToobin has said that Trump calling them ‘fake news’ may ‘incite violence’ against a journalist, when it is CNN that is (in my opinion) inciting violence against the Trumps and Trump supporters.

Reaction was pretty much what one would expect.
They know they are inciting the crazies. They are hoping for violence.

When someone keeps yelling “fire” and people get trampled over. That’s exactly what CNN and be other shit MSM companies have and KEEP doing.
Sooner or later they will be held accountable for inciting terrorism.

You’r right. CNN needs to be investigated very closely. The Secret Service should be crawling up their rear ends. MSNBC as well. Washington Post & The Failing NYT.

Police, Breitbart said, are investigating the letter’s source and the Secret Service confirmed it is also investigating the incident.
Another person said CNN’s rhetoric is responsible for a lot of bad behavior by radical violent leftists:
CNNs discourse is responsible for a lot of bad behavior. Their 24/7 coverage of the lie “hands up don’t shoot” promoted & validated the violence & destruction done in Ferguson. They’ve yet to apologize for their responsibility of further division in the USA.

Another person even suggested that someone from CNN may have sent the letter, which reports said, included a note which expressed anger.
Maybe someone from @CNN sent it. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Breitbart also said that leftists, including some in the so-called “mainstream media,” celebrated Trump’s hospitalization.
Journalist and producer Simon Thompson, for example, “asked whether Vanessa Trump had to be ‘decontaminated’ because of the white powder or because she’d ‘come into contact with Trump Jr.’”
The Socialist Party of Great Britain justified the incident and a journalist who has written for the Huffington Post claimed the entire incident was intended to cover up a cocaine overdose.

Dublin, Breitbart said, deleted the post, but “continued to spread conspiracy theories surrounding the incident’s validity.”
As we’ve repeatedly reported here, it’s no secret the radical left wants Trump dead. After he won in November, a series of GoFundMe pages appeared seeking funds to pay for the president’s assassination. Radical leftists, like actor Michael Shannon, have made it clear they want Trump supporters dead as well.
CNN and other outlets in the so-called “mainstream media,” have fueled much of the hatred and anger against Trump with heavily-biased reporting, as we and othershave repeatedly reported.
