It takes a lot to get me truly outraged. I don’t necessarily have anger-management issues, but I try to keep my cool at all times, even when I’m upset over something. The lack of coverage of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant’s murder has me absolutely outraged to the point I could barely finish recording the latest episode of Conservative News Briefs.
The young boy was riding his bicycle with his two sisters when he went onto a neighbor’s lawn. That neighbor, Darius N. Sessoms, 25, allegedly walked up to the child and shot him in the head with a firearm. He is in custody. This is big news that goes beyond local coverage. At least it should. It’s being picked up around the world by major news outlets like The Independent in the United Kingdom. But in the United States where it happened, the big mainstream media outlets other than Fox News are completely ignoring it.
Why? Because Hinnant was a young Caucasian boy and his suspected murderer is Black. If the situation were different and a Black boy was killed by a Caucasian man, this would be the biggest story across the board on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, and all the other leftist mainstream media rags. Instead, we’re hearing a deafening silence. None of them have even mentioned Cannon Hinnant’s name other than in local affiliate broadcasts.

Cannon Hinnant #SayHisName

Yesterday a 5 year old was riding his bike playing outside his house with his two sisters. His neighbor with already multiple felony charges walked up to him and shot him dead at point blank. FIVE YEARS OLD JFC. Where the hell is the media coverage?
Say his name. Cannon Hinnant

CNN has a total of zero stories on Cannon Hinnant–a five yr old boy executed by his neighbor.
Imagine if the races were reversed.

Just so everyone understands: a lone woman calling the police on a stranger threatening her/her dog in a park is considered national news.
The murder of #CannonHinnant is not.

You should know who Cannon Hinnant is and it’s an absolute disgrace that you don’t.
The American media is putrid.

A 5-year-old kid was just shot in the head and executed at point blank range…
While riding his bike in his dad’s yard.
Why isn’t the media blowing this up? 🤔
— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) August 13, 2020
Same group of people plastered Covington kids on front page – a total hoax, by the way – now want to claim that they won't report on Cannon Hinnant, because it's a "local news story."

When do the protests begin for Cannon Hinnant?

A five-year-old child was murdered in cold blood – shot at close range while riding his bike, by a man who crossed a street to put the gun up to his head. My question: why not call it what it was? Execution of an innocent child.

Darius Sessoms—a black man, went up to Cannon Hinnant, a 5 year old white boy and murdered him in cold blood in front of his 2 young sisters
If the races were reversed it would be national news
The activist media is ignoring this because it doesn’t fit their narrative

Cannon Hinnant was executed at five years old. The MSM won't utter his name.
He was targeted and executed by a black man for one reason.
Cannon was white, and #BlackLivesMatter declared war on him and all other children who look like him.
Anyone who says different is a liar.

This is 100% about the Black Lives Matter movement. They won’t report it just like they won’t report murders in Chicago that are predominantly committed against Black men by Black men. It’s why they wont’ report violence in leftist cities like Portland or Seattle because it’s violence in the name of Black Lives Matter; to mainstream media, they’re just “mostly peaceful protesters.” They have an agenda that combines their allegiance to the Democratic Party and their embrace of the Neo-Marxist push by Black Lives Matter.
There is nothing more racist that mainstream media can do than to ignore a story about a child’s murder because he didn’t fit their agenda. CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, and WaPo are evil. Cannon Hinnant. Say his name.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time.
