If anyone has cornered the market on blurring the line between satire and reality, it's the good folks over at CNN.

They've come through for us yet again with another unintentionally side-splitting take, this time literally running a chyron during a live broadcast that read, "FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING."

Of course, just above the stupefying description stood a journalist reporting from the "mostly peaceful protests," dressed as though he were preparing to enter an apocalyptic hellscape, and standing in front of — you guessed it — a raging fire burning in Kenosha.

"Fiery but mostly peaceful." Again, this is not the Babylon Bee. You can't make this stuff up ?
