Jack Dorsey, the former Twitter CEO, said that he witnessed CNN trying to cause conflict during the Ferguson, Missouri riots back in 2014, so he knows that the far-left network promotes false news reporting.

“Even @CNN sometimes sell false news. I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019. People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption. Do your own investigation before believing what they’re selling you,” said a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017 Sarah Abdali Idan.
Dorsey responded to this tweet with: “I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it causing the protestors to chant ‘f*** CNN’” as reported.
Dorsey made a remark on the platform earlier, from which Idan’s tweet came, when he called out CNN’s Brian Stelter and a columnist for The Washington Post on Monday over a tweet that took aim at Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
“Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: ‘He’s selling doubt…’” Stelter’s tweet stated.
“And you all are selling hope?” Dorsey responded to the tweet with a question.
A leftist that appears on MSNBC, Elizabeth Spier, responded to Dorsey, writing, “They’re selling truth, which is hope-agnostic. It’s supposed to inform you, not make you feel some kind of way.”
Idan’s tweet was a response to Spiers’ tweet.
Dorsey slammed the Twitter’s board of directors as entrepreneur Elon Musk, the world’s richest man tries to take over the company.
This is the tweet where Dorsey made his remark after responding: “If look into the history of Twitter board, it’s intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter’s founding members. I wish if it could be made into a Hollywood thriller one day.”
Dorsey responded: “It’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”
“Big facts” was Dorsey’s response to the following statement from venture capitalist Fred Destin: “What I do know for sure is that this old Silicon Valley proverb is grounded in age-old wisdom that still applies today: Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.”
Given the fact that he is still on the company’s board, he was later asked if he was allowed to speak like this publicly, to which he responded with: “No.”
