In a public post on Facebook dated March 13, an individual named Jeremy Jack claims that his photo was misused by CNN "to incite mass hysteria around the issue" of COVID-19.
Okay.. I have held my tongue about this COVID-19 insanity but after #CNN used MY face to report outright LIES that continue to incite the mass hysteria around this issue.. all bets are off! My son starts blowing up my phone today saying DAD you are on the news about the Corona Virus! I was completely confused.. so I find out that while reporting on the conditions in San Francisco as a result of the virus they used footage of ME and others during Hurricane Harvey in HOUSTON lined up outside of Kroger’s on Westheimer near the Beltway! CNN is using MY face to present misleading journalism that continues to seriously impact our economy and the every day decision making of the public. This is not okay.. do actual research for yourself. Get info from Health Organizations and local/national government. Take general safety precautions. Ignore the news..
This looks like a legitimate Facebook account, and I have no reason to doubt his claim that he appeared on CNN. However I'm left with doubts about the context in which his photo was actually used by CNN. Did CNN falsely suggest that these people were waiting in line for groceries in San Francisco due to COVID-19?
