Protesting Trump Supporters 'Berate' and 'Practically Chase' TV Reporter

Mean-spirited, Trump-supporting reopen protestors took out their frustrations on a local reporter who was covering their rally.

Kevin Vesey, a TV reporter for News 12 Long Island, withstood verbal barbs and was “practically chased” by several angry rally-goers during a Thursday protest in the Commack area of Long Island, N.Y.

Vesey first shared a portion of a video on Twitter that showed him being consistently harassed by protesters yelling, “You shouldn’t be here,” and “You are the enemy of the people.”

Vesey wrote about how vehement the protesters were and that he was only doing his job: “The level of anger directed at the media from these protestors was alarming. As always, I will tell a fair and unbiased story today.”

1. I'd like to know where these people find out about where to protest etc.

Who is organizing these and where can we look at what they are doing?

Those people are really nasty.

3. Gee...

What do you say to that? Delusional malcontents mouthing what they were told is true and sucking on Q-anon. I imagine they think that being so outright toxic and noxious helps their cause somehow. To me it says they don't know where to put their rage and anger, so watch out, anything or anybody will do.

Just add Darwin and stir or shake vigorously. The macabre death dance of the maskless rebels who think they have a cause, but miss the point of it all almost entirely. Good job, Q, etc.!

7. Something I agree with these "protesters". The news should leave and not overcover trivial protests.

Give them a 10 second slug on the news and move on to a real story.

No need for live coverage, film, or interviews with damaged lunatics.

Our local TV News interviewed a Doctor who was outlining health concerns, and then followed that up with an interview with some random crank carrying an Open Up sign, as if one has anything to do with the other.

It ain't Point- Counterpoint. It's Point -Crazy Alex Jones' Bullshit.
