Why Did CNN & NBC Both Pay Leftist Capital Rioter $35,000?

BLM agitator sold footage in which he vowed to ‘burn it down’

Court documents have revealed that both CNN and NBC paid leftist rioter John Sullivan $35,000 a piece for footage he shot during the storming of the Capitol building on January 6th.

Sullivan argued that he was attending the protest as a journalist to get footage to sell.

Politico reports that “Sullivan’s defense attorney even filed invoices with the court showing that CNN and NBC each paid Sullivan’s firm $35,000 last month for rights to video he filmed of chaotic scenes outside and inside the Capitol, including the deadly shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.”

Sullivan also received $5,000 from a company called Left/Right Productions and $2,500 from Australia’s ABC, according to the records.

A federal magistrate judge ordered Sullivan “to end his involvement with a business he founded (InsurgenceUSA) that the Justice Department says promotes and glorifies violent protests,” the report further states.

The notion that Sullivan was just a bystander is clearly countered by his many comments on the footage encouraging violence, including repeatedly yelling ‘burn it down’.

Federal prosecutors also presented evidence that they claimed shows Sullivan taking part in the violence and destruction.

Remember that Sullivan, who has been repeatedly arrested for engaging in Antifa and BLM violence, was just one of many agitators posing as a Trump supporter at the Capitol.

He even appeared on CNN and was interviewed by Anderson Cooper in the wake of the riot.

Videographer and reporter Tayler Hansen told The Gateway Pundit that $35,000 is an abnormal amount for a network to pay a freelancer for any footage.

“With over 6 months of experience as an independent Journalist I have captured some of the most viewed and circulated media content on the internet. I have NEVER made over $1,000 on an individual video,” Hansen explained.

He added “The highest I have ever seen a news source pay for breaking news footage is $3,000. John Sullivan being paid $35,000 by CNN and NBC for ONE EVENT is criminal. An average paid journalist out of Utah makes $3,021 a month, NOT $75,000 IN A MATTER OF DAYS.”

“There is something nefarious going on here, and I intend to find out what it is,” Hansen further urged.

Video: Reporter, Academics Claim The Word ‘Looting’ Is Racist

“Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something.”

In the midst of a spate of organised looting in California and beyond, the media and academia is telling people that they shouldn’t be using the word ‘looting’ because it is associated with “people of colour”.

According to  Julian Glover, ABC7 News Bay Area TV’s ‘Race and Social Justice reporter’ (yes really), the incidents should be described as “robbery” or “theft” because the word ‘looting’ is racist.

Glover cites Lorenzo Boyd, PhD, Professor of Criminal Justice & Community Policing at the University of New Haven, who claims that “Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing.”

Boyd also suggested the use of the word “looting” is part of an effort to politicize the crime wave by connecting it to Kyle Rittenhouse.

“These types of massive organized smash-and-grabs were happening before the Rittenhouse situation happened,” Boyd said, adding “It’s a false equivalency. It’s people trying to politicize crime.”

Watch:

Furthermore, as reported by the Daily Mail, Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education also claimed that the term ‘looting’ should not be used for the “depiction of the flash mobs running roughshod through the aisles of Louis Vuitton and other retailers.”

“This seems like it’s an organized smash and grab robbery,’ Reynolds said. “This doesn’t seem like looting. We’re thinking of scenarios where first responders are completely overwhelmed. And folks often may be on their own.”

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “looting” as “to rob especially on a large scale and usually by violence or corruption,” so is the dictionary racist too?

Violence is also certainly a feature of the crimes, with latest reports confirming that a security guard protecting a San Francisco Bay Area news crew has died after being shot in the abdomen.

The organised looting is not confined to California, with incidents also reported in Minnesota.

    Video: Students Demand ‘Black Friday’ Be Renamed, Until They Discover It Has Nothing To Do With Race

    “Black Friday sounds offensive”

    Students at the University of Florida decided that ‘Black Friday’ should be renamed because… racism, until Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson pointed out that the term has nothing to do with anyone’s skin colour.

    Jacobson cited past claims in the mainstream media that the term is discriminatory against black people and asked the students if they thought it should be changed.

    Most said yes.

    “Black Friday sounds offensive,” one student even proclaimed.

    Jacobson then explained the meaning of Black Friday (trading in the red, in the black etc) prompting a sudden shift of opinion.

    One student said “I think nobody should overanalyze it. If it’s not about skin color, then I don’t see that there’s a problem.”

    “Knowing what it actually means…I don’t think this is actually something that is offensive,” another added.

    “I wouldn’t change it now that I know the origins of it,” a further student admitted.

    Watch:

    This is where we are at, any term with the word ‘black’ in it that can be construed as negative is now automatically considered to be racist.

    Indeed, this is a core concept for authors and academics leading the critical race theory movement.

    The line of thinking has found its way into universities, where there are now demands among students and staff to ban the word ‘black’ in textbooks and lectures if it comes with a negative connotation.

    ‘BLM Supporter’ Starts GoFundMe Page For Christmas Parade Massacre Culprit

    Claims killer is a victim of racism.

    A person professing his support for Black Lives Matter started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Christmas parade massacre culprit Darrell Brooks, asserting that Brooks was a victim of racism.

    Yes, really.

    Brooks was charged with five counts of intentional homicide after ramming his SUV into dozens of people during the horrific attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

    A GoFundMe page started by someone identifying as James Norton of Waukesha claims that Brooks is innocent and that his treatment is merely another example of institutionalized racism.

    “On November 21st, 2021 our dear friend Darrell Brooks was arrested for allegedly driving his car into a parade, as someone who knows Darrell personally I can tell you that he would NEVER do such a thing and I know he is innocent of what he was charged with,” Norton wrote.

    “Clearly there is more to the story the media is not telling us and I am seeking to raise the bail so Darrell can be released and speak his truth to his side of the story in this tragic situation that sees another black man behind bars in a purely political and racist trial.”

    null

    “There is no excuse for this continued treatment of black Americans by prosecutors around the country, everyone must be presumed innocent until proven guilty and we ask that he be treated equally as anyone else in this country would be treated and he should be released until found guilty.”

    The post concluded with the hashtags #BLM, #IStandWithDarrell, #NoJusticeNoPeace, and #RacismIsReal.

    Of course it remains entirely possible that the page could have been started by a troll to make Black Lives Matter supporters look bad.

    However, given that BLM agitators haven’t hesitated to raise money to get violent criminals out of jail before on multiple occasions, don’t rule out the creator being a genuine leftist.

    As we highlight in the video below, the media is still reporting that the attack was a “car crash” or an “accident” and repeating the proven lie that Brooks was fleeing from a crime scene.
