From the original:

A lot of journalists have “f) some cnn people were arrested for a little bit” at the top of their lists.
Yes, this reminds me of when Frank was mean to some townie journos and they all lost their minds.

:lol:




Keep the real victims, the journalists, in your T&P's tonight.

On this theme, journalists are VERY concerned that Trump falsely said DC police weren't helping with protest control last night



Also this lol

Heros




Journalists are really pissed about journalists getting shot with rubber bullets

How do you “stop” a guy who had no intention of hurting anyone?

Splitting the Matt Hall stuff out, mocking journalists for covering the police going after journalists doesn't show what you think it does.

Journalists have covered war zones with more safety than is being provided on city streets in America. These tough guy cops can't even be as restrained as third world dictators.  The CNN thing should have gotten even more coverage. Knowing what the MPD knew about what is going on in the city and in this country, they couldn't even be bothered to let two black journalists do their job, when there were white media members all over the rough ridin' place. How many black members of the press do you think those cops saw that day, in comparison to the white media members. It wasn't some coincidence that those two guys were the ones arrested.

The media are the only things providing the checks to the cops causing havoc and destruction. God knows the districts attorney won't rough ridin' do anything about these abusive cops. All we have are cameras and potential shame from being exposed.

You make good points. I think my issue is that there's this attitude that what is happening to the press is far worse than what is happening to protestors based on the level of condemnation you see from them.

Also you have to admit the CNN sign tweet was pretty bad.

completely agree.  the media can slip into unattractive navel gazing at times, but it is vital that they cover these events (and everything else).  it is a huge deal that law enforcement, broadly speaking, appears to be targeting them and preventing or impeding their ability to observe and communicate the events to the public.

media navel gazing

I'm keeping my thread title, but yes, that's what this thread is for.

I don't get the impression that the media thinks what is happening to them is any worse than what happens to the protesters. I actually think of the media as a whole the same way that I do the protesters. Their role in this is to tell the story of the protesters, they are right there along side of them. They're getting arrested, gassed, and assaulted just like the protesters are.

The CNN tweet was cringy, but I agree with the sentiment. I also think that the media gets undue crap and not enough credit for doing good, this was before they had to deal with the orange ape and his fake news army. The fact that they're always being mocked, from all sides, probably has a bit to do with the navel gazing.

garrett haake (good dude) gets hit by a police projectile (he later said he thought it was a bean bag or something, not one of the rubber bullets). this is kind of a funny clip, but i've seen a couple of photos on twitter of people who have apparently lost an eye or lost vision in an eye from rubber bullets.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.
