Hate Groups Are Furious That CNN Published The SPLC’s Hate Groups Map After Charlottesville Terror Attack

Via press release from the Liberty Counsel:

CNN has published a fake news article, “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” that recklessly lists pro-family organizations, including Liberty Counsel, as active “hate groups” throughout the nation.

Liberty Counsel has sent a demand letter to CNN regarding this article that cites the discredited Southern Poverty Center Law (SPLC), a reckless organization that falsely labels nonviolent people and organizations as “haters” or “hate groups.”

“I am shocked that CNN would publish such a false report on the heels of the Charlottesville tragedy,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.

“To lump peaceful Christian organizations, which condemn violence and racism, in with the KKK, Neo-Nazis, and white supremacists is offensive. This is the epitome of fake news and is why people no longer trust the media,” said Staver.
