Why Are Both CNN and NBC Lying on Sandra Bland?

“I’m in my car, why do I have to put out my cigarette?”

Those were Sandra Bland’s EXACT words. That’s a QUESTION. Here’s what CNN reported:

“I am in my car. I don’t have to put out my cigarette,” Bland says.

And here’s the screenshot of what CNN is reporting:

cnn misquoteSee what they did there.

Watch the videos again (below) if you don’t believe that Sandra Bland asked a question rather than disobeyed a command.

And CNN is not alone in its misrepresentation of Bland. Here’s a quote from NBC News:

Bland acknowledges that she’s annoyed because he was tailing her, then pulled her over. Encinia then asked Bland to put out her cigarette. When she refuses, he tells her to step out of the car. “I don’t want to step out of my car,” Bland says, adding, “I refuse to talk to you other than to identify myself.”

Actually, no. Again, Bland doesn’t refuse to put out the cigarette. She merely questions why she is being asked to put out the cigarette, which is a valid question.

So why are both NBC and CNN, ‘the most trusted name in news’, misquoting Bland? At this point, I have no other choice but to believe that the misquote and mischaracterization of Bland is intentional, given that the video and accompanying transcripts have been out for hours. This feels like collusion between law enforcement and media to paint Bland, who never raised her voice until she was assaulted, as an angry black woman who got what she deserved.

And here’s the full video:

Yvette Carnell asks a question that already has an answer. Both CNN and NBC are owned and operated by racist Zionist American Jews. Who only support one of their own Jewish born Barack Obama and no one else matters even Sandra Bland nor Samual Dubose.

Look at her cell floor & look behind her head in her mugshot......she was pinned to the floor in mugshot and if you enlarge photo there is a lesions and bruising on her neck some question if she may already been dead in mugshot

I agree, she was dead and they started concocting a story. Why would she tell them she tried to commit suicide when the intake sheet say's otherwise.

Yes, she has a lifeless blank stare and the tips of her dreads are not hanging down toward her feet. They are casting a shadow where they touch the floor behind her head. She was clearly laying down.

Collusion mixed with conspiracy add in the doctored tape and you have a hit storm. The only thug willing to support the abuse is Houck aka swine time on CNN. 


The solution to this abuse is taking the power away from LEO. A conversation that will never happen with the kind of people we have making decisions.
