Sayoc Holding anti-CNN Banner at 2017 Trump Rally

This is some fascinating sleuthing from CNN.

Here’s video I and (many others) found in Sayoc’s twitter feed. It’s Sayoc at a Trump rally. There’s no clearly identifying information to tell us which rally it was.

However there is some clues that point to a February 18 2017 Trump rally in Melbourne, Florida. Sure enough CNN looked through its video archive and found footage of Sayoc at that rally on February 18th, 2001. He’s carrying an anti-CNN banner and appeared to be holding near the media pen.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
