This past weekend, white supremacists and radical leftists called Antifa clashed in Charlottesville on the one year anniversary of deadly 2017 protests. On Saturday night, the NBC News reporter Cal Perry alogn with his crew found themselves in the thick of the action as Antifa members violently attacked them. On the following morning, NBC’s Sunday Today completely ignored the vicious attack and actually implied that their media was just “heckled” by the attackers.
Things got very heated after an Antifa protestor shouted “Fuck you, snitch ass news bitch. Fuck you” and even attempted to jerk away the camera from the person using it and even knock it down to the ground.
In spite of all the video evidence obtained by their very own reporter, NBC then went to Garrett Haake, who was at the White House anticipating violence as there was yet another white supremacist rally that was scheduled to be held. “Overnight, tense moments in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, far left protesters heckling the media and chanting anti-police slogans,” he reported at the beginning of his report. They even used video footage that Perry and his crew shot.
These assaults on NBC’s reporters came almost a year after their political director, Chuck Todd used his MSNBC program, MTP Daily to promote Antifa’s violence even further as legimate aggressor against conservatives. He even went a step further and let them use Meet the Press as a platform to promote all their hate and violent methods. To this day, ChuckTodd has never condemned them – perhaps Chuck Todd should be the one out there among the violence promoting their activities.
