CNN was caught manipulating the information about the terrorist stabbing at an airport in Flint, Michigan, on Twitter. According to the liberal media outlet, the terrorist “said something in Arabic,” before committing the attack, but Twitter was quick to point out that witnesses reported the man shouting “Allahu Akbar (God is great).”

But the responses quickly forced the media outlet to correct their coverage.
Why is CNN afraid to report that a terrorist shouted ALLAHU AKBAR before stabbing an officer?
Why so afraid? #AllahuAkbar

The Daily Caller reports:
CNN’s Twitter account tried to get away with saying the Flint airport stabber “said something in Arabic” right before he attacked a policeman, but fellow social media users quickly corrected the network Wednesday.Reports indicated that witnesses heard the stabber shout “Allahu Akbar” before he attacked, but CNN chose to write “something in Arabic” instead.
The stabber, Canadian national Amor Ftouhi, stabbed Lt. Jeff Neville who worked at the airport multiple times, in what appeared to be a lone-wolf attack.
