Who is CNN protecting? Society or the narrative

CNN ignited a firestorm of backlash over the weekend after characterizing what police called "felony murder" as a mere accident.

Two teenager girls — ages 13 and 15 — were charged with felony murderafter allegedly carjacking Mohammad Anwar in Washington, D.C., last Tuesday.

Police say the teenagers attacked Anwar with a stun gun during the carjacking. The car later crashed, and Anwar died from injuries after being thrown from the vehicle. Anwar was a Pakistani immigrant who moved to America in 2014 to build a better life for his family.

The enhanced murder charges against the teenagers stem from a legal doctrine that "allows a killing that occurs in the course of a dangerous felony, even an accidental death, to be charged against the felon as first-degree murder," according to Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary.
