The media has been absolutely giddy about the incident at the Capital on January 6th ever since it happened.
It’s been over a month since it happened and liberal media outlets are still talking about it every day.
Now we are learning that some liberal media outlets paid an Antifa activist for footage from that day.
The Epoch Times reports:
CNN, NBC Paid Antifa Activist for Footage From Capitol Breach
Three news agencies paid a man who identifies as an Antifa activist and was charged with allegedly committing crimes during the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol for video footage he captured during the mayhem.
CNN, NBC, and the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (ABC) paid John Earle Sullivan thousands of dollars to use video clips he shot inside the building, according to a new court filing.
CNN paid $35,000, NBC paid $35,000, and ABC paid $2,375, according to invoices that were filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Sullivan, 26, was arrested and charged last month with multiple crimes on Jan. 6, including violent entry, civil disorder, and disorderly conduct.
CNN and NBC didn’t immediately respond to requests by The Epoch Times for comment.
Video footage, some of which was filmed by Sullivan, showed the Utah man illegally entering the Capitol building and urging others to go inside and burn the structure down. CNN also hosted Sullivan for an on-air interview later on Jan. 6, along with Jade Sacker, a freelancer who has had work published by various outlets.
