MSM Shamelessly Aggrandizing Trump Protests

Despite admitting that the vast majority of rallies and protesters are peaceful.

The mainstream media is providing 'round-the-clock coverage of the sudden, and seemingly spontaneous, violence that erupted during this last weekend's rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. However, as David Horowitz explained in detail, these mobs aren't spontaneous at all, but rather well-funded mobs organized by George Soros's MoveOn.org.

ABC News' Jonathan Karl and George Stephanopoulos have spent much time playing and replaying the clashes between protesters and Trump supporters, while at the same time admitting that the vast majority of rallies for the Republican front-runner are peaceful events. But, of course, showing American's exercising their right to free speech and to peacefully protest is not going to grab a viewer's attention like people punching each other:

CNN has been even bolder by not only looping the footage, but by airing a face-to-face, in-depth interview with the protester who jumped the guard rail at the Ohio rally on Saturday that caused Trump's security team to surround him at the podium. Would CNN be so willing to sit down so intimately with someone who rushed at President Obama? Would they give a voice to that criminal and help them explain that they were simply airing their "political grievances"?

Meanwhile, MSNBC doesn't really see a connection with the sudden and highly-organized protests, preferring to celebrate them as a "grassroots" uprisings, just like those in Ferguson or any of the other Black Lives Matter protests:

 

 

Expect to see more of the same from here on out as this type of coverage -- encouragement, really -- continues to prove that if you attack Trump, you're likely to get your face plastered on national television for days on end. What leftist could resist that?

 

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
