YES. NEXT QUESTION? WaPo: Michigan protests: Are the media ignoring thuggery? But note Erik Wemple’s theory that Crowder retroactively deserves to have been punched by going on Hannity. Hey, maybe if other media had been willing to cover this. . . .
UPDATE: Reader DRJ emails:
Wemple says “No” because Crowder isn’t a real journalist and “journalists don’t go to events to ‘prove’ anything.”
Remember CNN’s Susan Roesgen at the Chicago Tea Party?
CNN correspondent Susan Roesgen could barely get through her live shot at the Chicago tea party this afternoon. Over shouts of, “You’re not a reporter,” Roesgen quickly wrapped up an interview with an attendee, then said, “I think you get the general tenor of this. It’s anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox.”
Good observation. So if someone had punched Roesgen, no biggie. Noted.
