CNN issued an on-air apology on Wednesday morning for editing remarks made by the sister of a man shot dead by Milwaukee police in which she called for violence in “the suburbs.”
Sylville Smith, 23, was shot by an officer on Saturday afternoon, triggering destructive riots in the city. Officials said police body camera footage shows Smith turning towards an officer while holding a gun, prompting the officer to open fire.
The news network made it appear as if the woman was calling for peace, when she in fact urged demonstrators take their violence “to the suburbs.”
