CNN host lied to Texas firing range owner over “live” segment
Feb 7, 2013
When Infowars’ Alex Jones appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, he directly accused the host of being “A hatchet man for the new world order.” A gun shop owner in Texas found this statement quite accurate this week, noting that Morgan completely misled and misrepresented him in an interview designed purely to make Morgan look more knowledgeable on firearms.
Morgan traveled to Tactical Firearms in Katy, Texas to meet with owner Jeremy Alcede to film what he believed would be a live segment.
“He said, ‘well, I’d like to learn more about guns. People criticize me, saying, how can I be against guns if I don’t know anything about guns?’” Alcede told reporters for KIAH-TV news.
“I said man, this is going to be really good, he really is wanting to find out.” Alcede said.
“You won’t be able to accuse me of knowing nothing about how guns work after this,” tweeted Morgan in anticipation of the segment.
However, the firing range owner soon found out how Morgan and CNN really operate, when he watched the re-run of the show only to discover that the segment he was told was airing live was actually completely edited.
“They completely misrepresented what I wanted to get across, completely,” Alcede said.
“The points that I did make were just garbled to the point that people were asking why was I speaking in broken sentences,” he added.
Alcede noted that the clip would cut to him and he was wearing glasses, then in the next sentence he was without the glasses and with hearing protection.
“They just chopped it up so bad it wasn’t even funny.” he said.
Alcede had invited Alex Jones to the shop in order that he could confront Morgan in a civilized manner. He had told Alex that CNN intended to broadcast live. When Jones arrived he instantly noticed something amiss, having the knowledge and experience that he does about live transmission.
Alex asked Morgan if they were going live during the segment, to which Morgan replied that for the most part the segment would be broadcast live.
Watch the clip:
The fact that none of the segment was broadcast live, and was heavily edited to make Alcede seem rambling and incoherent, shows how duplicitous Piers Morgan is. He has a clear anti-Second Amendment agenda, which is why all of the positive points Alcede made ended up on a cutting room floor.
Alcede proved he is an intelligent and knowledgeable firearms expert in a subsequent appearance on the Alex Jones Show this week, where he was able to make his points LIVE, without fear of being edited and made to look a fool.
