Footage of Journalists Being Assailed and Attacked at Capitol

CNN and other (mainstream media) reporters being taunted, assailed and attacked. 

You can see all the damage to the cameras and equipment.  One cameraman is walking around with a broker finger.  Kudos and credit to the one Trump supporter who turned back the crowd and told the reporters to get out of there quickly.

This is what happens when the most powerful man in the world turns on journalists because he doesn't like what they have to say!  Cheers!

Ah well unfortunately this is quite predictably possible when your existence hinges upon lying to half the country and pushing propaganda. I was laughing the other day as the top 5 news stories on one site where(in no particular order):

-An outrage article over Harris's Vogue cover "not doing her justice"(after how many years of these same places seeking out the most disparaging pics of anyone associated with Trump!)
-An article on how Trump should be impeached
-An article on "a new" new covid mutation strain
-An article how members of congress who questioned the electoral process should be tried for treason
-An article fact checking Mike Pence for making the claim "the covid vaccine is a miracle"!

Journalists and academics are a big part of the American problem. You have people who knowingly work for institutions who sow discard, lie continuously(hey, where are the folks who hate Trump because he apparently lies so much? Answer: they're the biggest proponents of these liars!) and otherwise provide no value to the world. Basically academics who left the classroom. Not too different than their pals still at university...a major reason why skool is so expensive....these worthless scummers draw six figure+ salaries and gold package benefits to essential preach from a pulpit; something they get a major ego boost from, play god with peoples futures via the grading system, and refuse to be part of fixing broken system. Mandating the use of $700 textbooks for courses they have memorized and haven't changed in a decade...just as they do for Republicans...actions should have consequences as you guys say. Just like the time you posted the video of Andy Ngo getting attacked by the BLM folks....oh wait.

And what do Breitbart, Newsmax, Fox, and everyone else do...the same damn thing...except from the other side.  My point was that journalists (left or right) should not be treated this way in public or by U.S. citizens.  This is something you would expect in Iran or North Korea...not the U.S.! 

The President is 100% responsible for this attitude by Trump supporters.  Cheers!

If Trumpism rhymes with despots and dictators throughout history, there's really nothing surprising about that at this point is there?
