CNN at it again with fake news.
Marc Lamont Hill said on-air earlier this week that conservatives are guilty of “violent” rioting too, but couldn’t support his statement with a single specific example.

“I think it’s also a bit inaccurate to say that this is a problem purely on the left. I think we have intolerance on the left and on the right,” said Hill.
“I traveled to college speaking circuits all the time in school, and the right boycotts, they write letters not to let me in,” he added. Despite this claim, there are no reports that any of his speaking engagements have actually been canceled due to protest.
When challenged whether his critics engage in the type of violence seen at Berkeley, Hill deflected by citing incidents that have occurred away from the campus. “They don’t always go to the college campus. They sometimes blow up abortion clinics; sometimes they burn down mosques; they sometimes shoot up churches,” he said.
Blowing up abortion clinics and burning down mosques and shooting up churches—because these are the ways conservatives typically protest ideologies they don’t agree with.
