Finally… still too little, too late, but late is better than never… i guess…
Three days after pressures from conservatives, CNN finally covered the alleged brutal execution-style murder of five-year-old North Carolina boy Cannon Hinnant in a 218-word blurb posted early Friday morning.
On Sunday night, 25-year-old Darius Sessoms allegedly ran up to Cannon while the boy was playing on his bike in his front yard and shot him in the head while his tw0 sisters, aged seven and eight, looked on.
According to a report Thursday night on Fox News, it’s suspected that Sessoms, who lives next door to the victim’s father, was upset that Cannon rode his bike on his lawn earlier in the day.
Medical attention could not save the child and Cannon was pronounced dead at a nearby medical center.
Sessoms was apprehended on Monday and has been charged with first-degree murder.
Fox News was one of the only mainstream outlets to cover the tragic news.
This promoted prominent conservatives to question the mainstream media blackout on Cannon’s murder, sparking a #SayHisName hashtag.
