Shot 24 August 2008 (oldie but goodie)
FOX News reporter Griff Jenkins, along with his producer and cameraman, were attacked during a live broadcast by protestors who plan to disrupt the Democrat Party National Convention in Denver, Colorado this week.



You can hear the crowd chanting "Fox is a corporate news Wh*re"
Hey we know it's true



Department of correction vehicles near Capitol where protesters held demonstrations. National Guard in residential neighborhood six miles from where DNC held.

Most protesters were peaceful and law abiding, however when a Fox News cameraman entered the crowds, some of the mostly younger protesters were not having a corporate Republican controlled propaganda outlet tell their story.

Good old Fox News....getting the welcome they deserve.


That will get twisted and turned around like a twisty turny thing when Fox airs it, something like "unpatriotic terrorists attacked our news crews who had to run for their lives!!!!!!!.....and we are telling you in the most fair and unbalanced way possible."

They WERE a bunch of left wing crazies.

Those on the right get called crazy for brining guns to a protest and they don't attack people.

These people attack someone doing their job and you say they were labeling?

I think if it was me being attacked I would be labeling something a little stronger then that.

What they did isn't crazy. Attacking someone just because you don't like what they say is perfectly sane.

It's funny because those morons probably went home and turned on MSNBC and said "Finally some real unbiased news!"

What this video demonstrates is that the Left is extremely dangerous because these crazies are just average liberals going with the mob mentality.

Not to say that Fox News isn't a corporate whore, but so is MSNBC (GE) CNN (Time Warner).

The only dangerous right wingers are the Timothy McVey militia types and the anti abortion nut jobs who kill doctors, but those are fringe people.

On the Left, it is the run of the mill liberal who is likely to actually physically harm you if you don't agree with them, disrupt a political convention or town hall in a way that is meant to be nothing more than a distraction rather than a constructive addition to the debate.

The Left is really dangerous and radical. This isn't your grandpa's democratic party anymore. These People want to undo 200 years of history and install a progressive socialist agenda in this country. They are in the minority, but they are a very noisy minority, and their leaders are shills.... Obama, Pelosi, Reid... I hope we survive these nut jobs.

Nothing Rupert Murdock owns can be called "the press". It's the worst form of garbage, just like CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and all the rest.

If we had truth in advertising, we would call all of these outlets government & corporate controlled 'propaganda'. Nothing more.

I suppose it would blow your mind if these people weren't "left" or "right"?
But I understand it's easier to put a label on someone than to bother understanding them.

I'm sure you can pull up saying that says they weren't liberals.

However I'm more inclined to believe what I see. Read their signs and then tell me they aren't liberals and that was just a label given to them.

I hope you spread the same nonsense in threads about right wing protesters bringing guns to town hall meetings.

True. I am against this type of protest because it is very limiting in perspective and also there is no need for touching your opposition. It is not just FOX news, but the news media itself that needs to be protested against, and if not protested against, then looked always upon with a critical eye. And the "left" bad-mouth the gun-toting rights for bringing guns at an Obama rally, and the "right" will call murder on this. See how it is not We the people, but "left" and "right" each taking their stab in protest? Divide and conquer, it is really because divided both sides look stupid. Get rid of the labels, act as a people because the government and the media are in the same bowl.

The scary thing about mobs is that it can either be collectively intelligent or colllectively stupid but when it is latter, then it is dangerous.

to call FOX NEWS the "PRESS" is quite a stretch of the imagination, and these people that are shouting fox down, seem to be aware of the freedom of speech.

I went to the rallys against Bush Jr. during the RNC in Manhattan in 2004. I was expecting to see many people like me... a moderate center of the road democrat (at the time), but all I saw was a bunch of left wing extremists. People openly advocating for communism as a form of government, people who were advocating for anarchy rather than a constitutional republic. Sure, those people were "fringe" however, most of the people that were there that weren't what one would concider fringe were also a little nuts. People were screeming at the few repulicans who showed up to be a counter voice. People were getting into cops faces. It was a little nuts.

I'm not a republican, but I have abandoned the label democract as I feel what has become mainstream in that party is socialism, and sometimes worse. These people are dangerous, and if you study history, you would be able to see how these radicals can violently overthough a stable government.

Even extreme rightwingers get democratically elected... look at Hitler.

I love when dumb people call me ignorant. Try actually writing more than one sentence when trying to debate me, AND you should really use a comma before writing the word "and."

Freedom of speech does not include the right to physically and forcibly interfere with anyone, especially a reporter just trying to do his job. You may not agree with the editorial content of Fox News; however, they are as legitimate a news source as any corporate owned news outlet. As if CNN and MSNBC are any more news worthy than Fox. They are just taking a point of view you may agree with. Simply agreeing with the editorial content of a news source doesn't somehow make that news source any more legitimate.

Furthermore, your disagreement with the editorial content of Fox News does not give a bunch of commies the right to manhandle a reporter.

What a bunch of bobble-headed hippies. They weren't the average american for sure. They do have a right to free speech, but they definitely don't wield free speech in a mature or respectful way.


Now those tea party protests, that's the next-door neighbor and the grandparents standing up for themselves. Besides a few angry yellers, that's pretty well done.


Personally I've deleted MSNBC from my channel list. Never seen such hateful biased reporters since Pravda. I've stopped myself from buying Microsoft products because of MSNBC.

First off....The only dangerous right wingers are people like mcveigh?! Come on. We have had dangerous right wingers in office as POTUS for the last several decades, and have caused untold millions of casualties and ruined lives around the globe. Name one TRULY leftist leader who has come close recently? Bush alone, guilty for the murder of 1.2 million iraqis. Dont be silly. It is the LEFT that has pushed for everything that makes this country great. Equality, womens sufferage, african american rights, labor laws, etc all fought for by the LEFT, and taken from a government and corporate sector that NEVER WANTED THEM TO HAVE IT, and at the cost of imprisonment, abuse, and lives lost, for you today to have the freedoms you do.

And secondly, i see you all attacking the protesters (not that i support them, just trying to show a little context here) for being irresponsible while saying the reporters are "Just doing their job"....thats BS. What our news reporters are doing today is dangerous and detrimental to society. ALL of them, just about. They have made it so no one truly knows what is going on, or who is right. They are supposed to be the watchdogs for the people, but instead they are showpieces, distractions, and mouthpieces for government agenda. They play the left against the right, the poor against the middle class, and meanwhile the politicians and corporations make all the profit. They are scum that are helping to bring all of us down, and we spoon it up like sunday dinner. Perhaps non violent resistance is all the rage, but its also one of the more inneffective methods of protest on its own. Peaceful protest is ok for a FIRST STEP....its not ok as an ongoing strategy when decades after it begins the other side still does what they want, ignores public demand and opinion, and uses FORCE (police, military) to enforce THEIR desires.

Like DEATH PANELS has been a "constructive addition to the debate???"

Yup, no better way to induce cognitive discussion than to tell people their grannies will murdered for their age.

Much like calling people NAZI'S, I know I love debating people who equivocate my ideas to a mass murdering society


People are people, left - right - contrary to which many may believe, I do not each my dinners out of a dog bowl. Just as you should be given the benefit of the doubt; that you in fact are not daft or deficient.

On the other hand, I do think it is dangerous is to be so self righteous as interesting thing happen when you demonize an entire portion of society.
