“Our crew was making a report about Tskhinvali ruined by the Georgian army. We particularly were filming the University of South Ossetia. We were very surprised and indignant to see this footage on CNN presented as the Georgian town of Gori, which the Russian army supposedly attacked. We still have the original video material of Tskhinvali in ruins. The footage aired by CNN has been forged and fabricated,” Baranov said.
CNN also used the footage from the Kodori Gorge of Abkhazia to show it as a report from Gori, the journalist added.
Muslims have been getting this treatment by CNN since the Persian Gulf War; the first one.
