Nolte: CBS News Caught Broadcasting Fake Coronavirus Footage for 3rd Time

For the third time in as many months, far-left CBS News has been caught broadcasting fake coronavirus footage to manufacture a crisis narrative.

In March, the fake news outlet was caught using film footage from an overwhelmed hospital in Northern Italy in a report about New York City hospitals.

After CBS was busted for this, the network apologized and said it would never do it again.

The following month, CBS did it again — used the exact same Italian footage as a stand-in for New York.

This month, CBS has been caught broadcasting staged footage involving coronavirus testing at Cherry Medical Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The segment aired on Friday, May 1, on CBS This Morning and featured a video of a long line of cars waiting to get a coronavirus test. The agenda, obviously, was to attack President Donald Trump for having failed to provide adequate testing facilities.

According to a whistleblower, who spoke with James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, the long line was staged. Only one or two of the cars in the line featured actual patients. The other cars were employees from the medical facility who pulled into the line to make it look longer.

“So, the people in the cars are not patients?” O’Keefe asks the whistleblower.

“Majority of them,” the disguised whistleblower said. “I do know, from talking with the testers that one, one of them, one or two of them were real patients, which added to their frustration because this line sat there for a while so they could organize the shot.”

“A CBS News crew pulled medical professionals off the floor at the Cherry Medical Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to line up in their vehicles so a CBS film crew would have a long line for their COVID-19 coverage,” Project Veritas reports. . . .

. . . because of the fake patients, the actual people who were in line to be tested had to wait a much longer than normal time to have their tests completed. .

. . . So CBS News says Cherry Health did it.

Cherry Health says, nyuh-uh — wasn’t us.

What we do know, though, is that CBS does agree the footage was faked to some degree and the network has been forced to pull it.

What we do know is that this is the third time CBS News has broadcast fake news that makes things look worse than they are. . .
