CNN denied reports that tear gas was used in Ferguson, Mo. Sunday morning after protesters defied the state-imposed curfew.

Despite initially reporting on the use of tear gas, CNN quickly retracted their statements to instead give a police-friendly version of events, telling viewers that only smoke was used.

Those on scene took to social media to refute CNN’s claims with evidence of tear gas canisters. Even as other news outlets began to confirm the use of tear gas, CNN continued to blindly rely only on reports from police.


Infowars reporters were hit with tear gas shortly after leaving the designated press area to document the remaining protesters.

Demonstrators defied the martial law crackdown by continuing to protest well past the midnight curfew.
