CNN Retracts After Labeling Hatebreed As A White-Power Band
Well that was too easy huh CNN? NOT!
CNN was forced to issue a retraction after labeling hardcore metal act, Hatebreed, as ‘white-power hardcore band.’
The band was labeled next to known white-power bands such as Jew slaughter, Definite Hate and End Apathy despite having no connection with any of the bands mentioned and their movement.
The article was written due in part to news media finding out that the Sikh Temple shooter was involved with a hardcore white-power band.
Hatebreed responded with:
“Our music brings people of all races together all over the world. CNN need to get their facts straight. Writers like Lonnie Nasatir are the reason why the American media is looked at as a complete joke. CNN loses all respect, now they slander us. We demand a retraction and an apology.”
CNN did issue the retraction and but did not offer an apology. Instead CNN ‘regretted the error.’
Big fucking error CNN!
What do you think of this error?
