“Very Bad Mimicry”

As you might have heard, CNN, the "most trusted name in news," spotted what they thought was an ISIS flag at a gay pride event. They even went so far as to consult terrorism experts on why ISIS may be supporting the gay rights movement.

It was not a flag of the so-called Islamic state; an organization that is well-known (apparently not to CNN) for executing gay people. It was a flag covered in dildos.

The man who created the flag wrote an op-ed for The Guardian which included this burn on CNN.

But how could a report so hysterical and so clearly false possibly get onto the air, discussed by a terrorism expert? CNN correspondent Lucy Pawle described my flag as a “very bad mimicry” but the only bad mimicry I could see was CNN’s impression of a reputable news organization.

Oh shit.
