Punknews have reported on a CNN story earlier today that falsely associated Hatebreed with the white power movement. In the story, written by Lonnie Nasatir of the Anti-Defamation League, Hatebreed were included in a list of bands provided as examples of white power music, but it was later removed with a note added that the initial claim was incorrect. Hatebreed addressed the situation on Twitter, saying:
Writers like Lonnie Nasatir are the reason why the American media is looked at as a complete joke.
And later also tweeted:
Again CNN loses all respect. First they ignore the [Randy Blythe] story now they slander us. We demand a retraction & an apology.
