Protesters demonstrating outside the White House early Saturday morning turned on a Fox News reporter who was covering the protests live on air.
Fox News reporter Leland Vittert was reporting outside the White House in Lafayette Park when he and his crew were surrounded and attacked. The incident occurred just before 1 a.m., and was captured on video.
One protester lunged at Vittert, who was reporting live on air, according to Fox News. The tense situation quickly escalated, forcing the Fox News crew to rush out of the park. Dozens of protesters then chased the crew.
Vittert and his crew were allegedly punched and hit with various projectiles. One protester even broke the news camera when they attempted to steal it. Another protester stole Vittert’s microphone, and then threw it at him.
Protesters shouted, “F**k Fox News! F**k Fox News!”
Since journalistic freedom is important and, at the end of the day, they are fellow journalists, you would expect this event to be featured on every news channel, however if we search on CNN we can’t find any article which cover this attack.
Shame on you CNN!!!!
