CBS’s present “NCIS: New Orleans” was accused Sunday of parroting the mainstream media by “doubling down on false liberal propaganda” to color typically violent protests throughout the nation as “peaceful” demonstrations.
Some members of the media bent over backward in 2020 label demonstrations as “peaceful” whatever the proof and Media Research Center contributing writer Lindsay Kornick feels the hit CBS drama took a web page from the press’ playbook.
“The latest episode somehow went further to appease a ‘burn the establishment’ progressive and her mostly ‘peaceful’ crowd,” Kornick wrote. “The January 3 episode “Operation Drano, Part 1″ has NCIS Agent Pride (Scott Bakula) taking part in a commission put forth by the mayor to solve the issues plaguing the city. Sadly, that does not include the actual issues in New Orleans like high crime or taxes but rather the vague progressive issues of ‘systemic inequality.’ In fact, Pride himself claims the city ‘was born’ of systemic inequality. This leads to a heated argument between former police superintendent Michael Holland (Gareth Williams) and progressive voice Allie Briggs (Hannah Hodson).”

Kornick stated the dialogue mirrors Democratic speaking factors and far of the mainstream media, as Briggs urges leaders to “burn down” the institution whereas criticizing police.
“Of course, the one person who doesn’t think the police are racist is seen as the unreasonable one,” Kornick wrote. “This leads to Pride trying to get Holland to reconsider his mindset on viewing the city as inherently racist. He even goes so far as to peddle the usual lie that the ‘vast majority’ of [Black Lives Matter] BLM protestors are just peaceful idealists being dragged by a few bad actors. Strange how the police never get that benefit of the doubt.”
In May, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi, who was reporting stay from Minneapolis following the loss of life of George Floyd, informed viewers that the scenario was “not generally speaking unruly,” whereas he was standing in entrance of a burning constructing.
ABC News was mocked in July for describing a California protest that featured demonstrators setting fireplace to a courthouse, vandalizing a police station, and capturing fireworks at law enforcement officials, as “peaceful.”
“”CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell even said “mostly peaceful” protests would price to billion in claims on account of injury from looting and arson and CNN nationwide correspondent Omar Jimenez reported stay in August on the unrest that had taken place in Kenosha, Wis., following the police-involved capturing of Jacob Blake. At one level, the CNN reporter stood in entrance of a raging fireplace and the chyron on the backside of the display learn, “FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING.”
As for “NCIS: New Orleans,” the pro-cop character ultimately “relents to the BLM message and even agrees to work with the commission to try to reform the cash bail system,” based on Kornick.
“To see a long-running show like ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ go so low as to sell out New Orleans to appease whiny progressives like Allie is disappointing on its own. To see it sell out New Orleans while still peddling BLM lies is just the final nail in the coffin,” Kornick added.
