FauxNews Hack: "The hate that you get from these demonstrators, you can see it in their faces" (VID)
"The utter lack of civility and the harassment of reporters..."

FauxNews is obviously desperate to spin the media narrative against the protesters. So they plant the reporter right in the middle of a peaceful gathering, insults them, then whines about being called out for his networks blatant distortions.

1. You know what my momma's always told me?
"When people talk about other people, they're really talking about themselves."

2. Fox is not a legitimate news source
The Obama Administration graciously allows them to exist.

6. The Constitution allows them to exist.
The administration has no choice but to allow them to exist. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't call them out every time. The remedy for bad speech is more speech, not suppression.

3. At least FOX is covering it.
FOX is the only network where I can find (spirts of) live video of the Capital protest.

4. They're a bunch of poopie-heads!
What a whiny-ass reporter, this is probably his first gig on a news assignment and is scared to death of democracy!

5. I was there, he's full of it
I've never seen a more polite, respectful demonstration. There was a march at one point and someone accidentally dropped a glass bottle. Everyone stopped and cleaned it up so the glass wouldn't litter the drive. At that point, one of the police came over and commented, "I've never seen such a polite group."

10. I love how he characterizes it as an attack on the "media."
As if the chants don't reference one particular news organization :)
