LEFT NEWS: CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota was left speechless Friday after hearing a report from correspondent Ivan Watson about the alleged treatment of Uighur women being held in internment camps in the Xinjiang region of China.
In her broadcast of “New Day,” Camerota prefaced correspondent Watson’s report with a background on the situation in Xinjiang.
“This morning, shocking allegations of gang rape in detention camps in China. The U.S. government accuses China of the mass internment of up to 2 million members of mostly Muslim ethnic minority groups in recent years,” Camerota said.
“Part of a policy that the U.S. State Department says amounts to genocide. Beijing denies this, claiming the camps are vocational training centers aimed at creating jobs and stamping out Islamist extremism.”
Under President Trump, the U.S. became the first country to formally recognize China’s treatment of the Uighurs as genocide in January.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo specifically cited unjustified imprisonment, forced labor, sterilization, and the torture
