‘I Have Never Seen Lafayette Park Like This’: D.C. Protest Reporters Say This Weekend Felt Different
Nathan Diller

Ford Fischer, chief multimedia editor for the digital wire service Zenger, has been covering protests in D.C. for more than seven years. He says the clashes between police and protesters over the weekend looked different than any other he has covered in recent memory.

“The last three days has been a drastically different policing style and tone, and to be fair, protest style, than I think we’ve seen in D.C. during that time,” Fischer says.

Sunday marked the third night in a row of protests in the District and across the country, after the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Fischer is a number of journalists who noted a shift in tone from past demonstrations they’ve witnessed on the job.

1. Wow. Just imagine if he'd covered them over a few decades.....I'm glad he noticed the difference,

but he really needs to catch up with the background on these. This is so much more than what they think they see.
