Fox's Vittert, crew chased by demonstrators at DC protest

Source: The Hill

Fox News anchor Leland Vittert and his crew were followed by protesters while covering a demonstration outside the White House on Friday night.

"Imagine what it's like to be a black man, feeling like this every f---ing day,” a woman screamed at Vittert as he and his crew attempted to leave what appeared to be an escalating situation.

One of two of Vittert's security staffers was punched in the face and knocked to the ground as the team hurriedly exited the park.

The journalist said when they found a police car approximately two blocks away, they pounded on the window frantically but the officer refused to get out of the car while appearing to radio for help. "We were very clearly on our own, and in that situation, you just don't know how things are going to play out," Vittert said.

30. Love it, justice MF'er at FOX

Scared little weenies? Well just like the woman walking next to those arss holes ... paraphrasing, "Now you know how we feel everyday" ... make them run, run, run away from their sins. Hopefully FOX learns something about the "general welfare" that we all need to promote in a free and Democratic society. They have FAILED, but between shit and Shinola, the Murdoch's, owners of FOX, not even American, are ripping apart our country with their false reporting.
(What is Shinola slang for?
Shinola is a defunct American brand of shoe polish. ... It was popular during the first half of the 20th century and entered the American lexicon in the phrase, "You don't know shit from Shinola," meaning to be ignorant). The brand name was acquired by the retail company Shinola in 2011.


Murdicks are not Americans, FOX is not American, never was.



Murdock's = murdick's = murderous dicks

2. Faux Snooze made this nasty bed, egging on the police & counter rioters.

Poor widdle snowflakes deserve it, they are tough when encouraging people with guns but not when it's themselves.

Looking like a scared rabbit for somebody who spends a lot of time in the gym and spouting aggressive jingoist nonsense.

Bla-doop.

The sudden and unfamiliar feeling of social vulnerability. I'm not sure the reporter had ever felt that feeling before, and I mean ever.

11. For about half a second, I almost thought, "yikes!" (Not enough caffeine). Then I remembered

that faux snooze has been helping to create the divisions and ugliness, including their support of the xenophobic, racist asshole currently cowering in fear in OUR HOUSE, and immediately got over my momentary lapse.

18. I, too could enjoy the fear

On their faces. They were arguably in a genuinely dangerous situation, outnumbered by angry people.

What is really disgusting to consider is how so many white people espouse such fear in completely ordinary circumstances-- just because one or more black people are in the vicinity.

20. I have mixed feelings about this

CNN building gets trashed. Fox news reporters run out of the park with a mob chasing them.

I hate FOX news as much as you all, but we don't know who this 4-team fox crew are. the camera guy... the sound guy.....

I didn't enjoy watching this. my opinion.

26. I know who they were.

They were people who work for Fox News. They have ruined journalism in this country and they know it and are proud of it. They are scum and should be treated this way every time they show their face in public.

I wish I could have see breitbart being driven out.

Maybe that’s what needs to be done more harass Fox reporters every time they appear.

38. Wrong, vittert, the protestors were not attacking journalists. They were chasing a group of lying

hacks who work for an organization trying to destroy this country. The POLICE attacked REAL journalists when they arrested the CNN crew in MN.

You did have enough sense, at least, to hang on to each other.

39. If the cops had fired tear gas and rubber bullets at them then I might listen to their complaints

Coming to that protest to cover it in a one sided manner to exploit the situation and stoke racial tensions for political gain was a provacation.

40. Attend a Trump rally sometime

like I have (incognito). When Trump riles up the crowd and turns them against the media row, some pretty scary stuff. Can't feel too sorry for the guys in the video, their employer supports the people who do the same thing.
