CNN's Reporting Endangered Lives During India's Terror Attack

You can always count on CNN to side with terrorists, guaranteed, 100 percent of the time.

The most recent example is reported on by Wales Online:

A SOUTH Wales couple caught in the Mumbai terror attacks claimed last night that CNN put their lives at risk by broadcasting where they were.

Lynne and Kenneth Shaw, of Penarth, warned that terrorists were listening in to the media to pinpoint Western victims.

Mrs Shaw claimed the American cable TV channel had broadcast details of where they were at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.

She has appealed to the media to be careful with the information it broadcasts because safety could be compromised and lives lost.

One has to wonder whether the media even thinks about the ramifications of what they are reporting.

“The terrorists were watching CNN and they came down from where they were in a lift after hearing about us on television. For that reason I would appeal to the media to be very careful about what they broadcast.

“When we left Mumbai there were still around 100 people trapped there.”

She added: “People talk to one another on mobile phones and that gets broadcast and the terrorists knew from that.”

This isn't the first time CNN has helped out a terrorist or two.

The image above is from October of 2006, when CNN admittedly received a video from terrorists and decided that showing enemy propaganda at the request of those same terrorists that were killing U.S. soldiers, was "news."

Not only did they show the sniper video but as you can see from the image above, they also offered that same piece of video on their OnDemand channel and listed it under the category of "family programming."

Then again in October of 2007, just a year later, CNN provided footage of a safe house where Lars Vilks was staying because people were trying to kill him.

Gates of Vienna explains who Lars Vilks is for those that are unaware.

CNN, ever-attentive to the “people’s right to know”, has apparently exposed the location of Lars Vilks’ safe house.

Mr. Vilks, as you may recall, is the artist behind the Modoggies, and has had a fatwa issued against him, death threats, and most notably a bounty put on his head by Al Qaeda in Iraq.

They never learn, they don't care and they constantly try to deny, justify or excuse their dangerous behavior.

It is inexcusable.
