A random person walked into the frame during a live broadcast on the streets of New York on CNN Tuesday, yelling “CNN is fake news!”


Cooper was asking, “How likely is it that there could be a video, kind of a martyrdom video so-called, which is what we saw in, I think when the Charlie Hebdo attacks, if memory serves me, there were some, and some of the attacks in Europe that we’ve seen…”

A pedestrian walked into the camera feed and said, “CNN is fake news! CNN is fake news! Anderson Cooper is fake news!”

A CNN crew was on the ground in New York due to a suspected Islamist terror attack in Manhattan Tuesday.

The suspect reportedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” before running down pedestrians with a truck. (RELATED: Truck Driver Kills Eight NYC Pedestrians In ‘Deliberate Attack,’ Screams ‘Allahu Akbar’)

CNN’s Jake Tapper used the opportunity to call the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” “beautiful.” (RELATED: CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Allahu Akbar ‘Beautiful’ After Terrorist Attack [VIDEO])
