Lucy Pawle: How I nearly saved the world of imminent discord …

London Gay Pride 2015 parade has come to find a wash of colorful hubris upon its corridors after Lucy Pawle, CNN international news editor took to reporting yesterday’s ‘unnerving’ sight of someone carrying an ISIS flag at London’s Pride parade.

At the time, the ever keen news reporter was passing the parade on her way home, when she came to find herself ‘shocked‘ to notice ‘this man, quite distinctive from the rest of the crowd,’ (brace yourself as Pawle builds up the climatic intrigue to her theory of imminent discord …)  waving ‘a very bad mimicry’ of the black and white ISIS flag.

Live on air the scoop reporter pointed out that while the offending flag was ‘clearly not Arabic,’ and resembled ‘gobbledegook,’ it was still (naturally) ‘very distinctively the ISIS flag.’

But the journalist fearing something amiss and convinced that she knows better went one further. She called police.

As it turned out, the conspiracy theory of damned proportions was just a parody of the ISIS flag which had come to be replaced with an array of dildos and butt plugs.

Something one could have bothered to notice had they not been too keen on instead trying to fit a more nuanced and preferred by story line on to our collective tv screens.

Accentuating the madness that is corporate media and the spectacle of pigeon holing presumed idioms of doom, CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen would then go on to ‘gravely‘ analyze the development, highlighting how it was ‘a very strange place to be showing an ISIS flag,‘ since ISIS ‘hates gays so much.’

Or to be succinct, CNN hates ISIS so much or anything or anyone too radical of its byline scoop.

Toward the end of segment, both the CNN anchor and Bergen did acknowledge that it might be a joke, but hedged that with further concern that the appearance of the flag might mean ISIS was announcing its next Western target and CNN its next coup d’etat….

Lucy Pawle’s report has been removed from CNN’s website. Can anyone guess why?
