Ex-Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Says He Witnessed CNN Fabricate News to 'Create Conflict'
Tech entrepreneur says network falsified reports on 2014 Ferguson riots
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has spoken to reveal that he witnessed far-left "news" network CNN fabricating reports in a direct effort to "create conflict."
Dorsey said on Twitter Monday evening that he knows that CNN promotes false news reporting because he saw the network try to cause conflict during the Ferguson, Missouri riots in 2014.
The tech entrepreneur says CNN was falsifying reports to intentionally intensify the rioting to suit its agenda.
Dorsey made the Bombshell revelation in a response to a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017 Sarah Abdali Idan.
"Even @CNN sometimes sell false news," Idan said.
"I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019.
"People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption.
"Do your own investigation before believing what they’re selling you.”
Dorsey responded, “I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it causing the protestors to chant ‘f*** CNN’.”

Idan’s tweet stemmed from an earlier remark that Dorsey made on the platform when he called out CNN’s Brian Stelter and a columnist for The Washington Post on Monday over a tweet that took aim at Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Dorsey referenced a tweet from Stelter that stated: “Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: ‘He’s selling doubt…’”
Dorsey responded to the tweet by asking in a tweet, “and you all are selling hope?”

Elizabeth Spiers, a leftist that appears on MSNBC, responded to Dorsey, writing, “They’re selling truth, which is hope-agnostic.
"It’s supposed to inform you, not make you feel some kind of way.”
Idan’s tweet was a response to Spiers’ tweet.
Dorsey made news over the weekend when he slammed Twitter’s board of directors as entrepreneur Elon Musk, the world’s richest man tries to take over the company.
Dorsey was responding to the following tweet when he made his remark, “If look into the history of Twitter board, it’s intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter’s founding members.
"I wish if it could be made into a Hollywood thriller one day.”
Dorsey responded, “It’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”
Dorsey also said “big facts” in response to the following statement from venture capitalist Fred Destin: “What I do know for sure is that this old Silicon Valley proverb is grounded in age-old wisdom that still applies today: Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.”
When later asked if he was allowed to speak like this publicly given the fact that he is still on the company’s board, Dorsey responded, “No.”
