CNN falsely labels Northam as ‘Republican’ in blackface-KKK flap

By Around the Web

(Fox News) CNN – the network that promotes the hashtag #FactsFirst — mislabeled embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam as a Republican on Friday during a segment about the Democrat’s apology for his racist 1984 medical school yearbook photo.

The photo showed two men holding beers — one dressed in blackface, the other in a KKK robe — but Northam never made clear which one was him.

The CNN chyron that mistakenly called Northam a Republican aired Friday during “Anderson Cooper 360,” the nightly show hosted by Anderson Cooper. The segment focused on a video in which Northam apologized for the nearly 35-year-old photograph.
