CNN under fire for cheering mob that manufactured outrage over Ivanka Trump’s precious photo

The Horror!
CNN earned another notch in its fake news belt as it launched an analysis discussing the non-story over Ivanka Trump’s photo with her son.

The network on Monday squandered an opportunity to clear up the backlash over Trump’s photo with some real facts about the 1500 illegal immigrant children who were supposedly “ripped from their parents.”

Entertainment Weekly correspondent Dana Schwartz attacked the first daughter on Sunday after she posted a photo of her and her 2-year-old son sparking outrage from critics who slammed Trump for the timing of the “tone-deaf” post.

Imagine posting this on the day the top news story is 1500 children ripped from their parents who have no idea when they'll see them again. https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1000770717628104710 

But as subsequent reports revealed, the migrant children were not, in fact, “ripped” from their parents when taken into custody at the border – a policy enacted under the administration of former President Obama. The hysteria over the federal government losing track of more than 1,000 illegal immigrant children sparked an outcry over the weekend and hashtags like #WhereAreTheChildren.

The minors, it seems, were placed with relatives or sponsors here in the U.S. who made the decision to “go off the grid.”

Good morning, everyone! I’m seeing a lot of tweets about how 1,475 children “taken from their parents” were lost by HHS. That’s wrong. Most children sent to HHS—before last fall, ALL children sent to HHS—arrived in the US as unaccompanied minors.
FYI, another point about this: we do not know how many of these children weren’t located because they and their relatives in the US (who might even be their parents!) made the decision to go off the grid to reduce deportation risk.

Not surprisingly, CNN chose to ignore the facts as the network’s White House reporters Kate Bennett and Sarah Westwood took aim again at Trump in a discussion on Monday.

Ivanka Trump is being accused of "insensitivity" because she posted a picture embracing and showing love to her 2 year old. So let me get this straight, because of the 'border battle' it isn't ethical for her to show love to her own? This is an all-time low for critics!! https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1001181816278147075 

The women continued the narrative without clearing up any of the misinformation, and were called out on Twitter as many slammed the “manufactured outrage” CNN was purposely creating.

This paints a very strange narrative, where we live in a world where Ivanka is not doing a good enough job hiding her desire to tear families apart? Look @CNN, when you make your narratives, at least try to make them believable. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1001181816278147075 
For journalism students everywhere: This is known as "manufactured outrage". There is no correlation between the photo, or the "reports" which were themselves inaccurate, but this network has created a narrative that fits their ideological point of view. It's called https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1001181816278147075 
A lot of people don't know this, but loving your family is actually a crime if you disagree with Democrats on immigration policy. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1001181816278147075

And we're all "outraged" at the "racism" of Roseanne Barr.
