Man Calls Out CNN, Claims They Used Footage of Him During HURRICANE For Coronavirus Segment


Jeremy M. Jack, a sign language interpreter and businessman, called out CNN for using an image of him in footage about the Coronavirus outbreak in San Francisco. But Jack says the footage actually shows Jack and others in Houston, Texas during Hurricane Harvey. Jack is not happy about it.

Jack posted on Facebook on March 13.

“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..,” Jack wrote.
