CNN: Radical New Mexico Compound Family ‘Struggled’

CNN: Radical New Mexico Compound Family ‘Struggled’

CNN is being slammed for running a less-than-critical headline about the radical New Mexico compound family being accused of training children to commit school shootings.

CNN wrote on Sunday that the family “struggled with life off the grid,” and noted in the article that one neighbor of the family remembered seeing “one of the men tenderly wip[ing] the nose of a crying child.”

Prosecutors allege that the compound men, including the son of prominent Imam Siraj Wahhaj, were training children to commit school shootings and that the children were living in “filthy” and “appalling” conditions. Furthermore, the remains of Wahhaj’s missing 3-year-old grandson were found on the compound.

CNN got a significant amount of backlash for the article and accompanying tweet that focused on the family’s “struggle” rather than the sickening allegations against them.
