The CNN camera crew was ultimately chased away by the mob.
This is not the only time CNN was attacked this week, earlier a man approached a camera crew and began berating them.
From the Daily Wire:
CNN has repeatedly been the subject of news reports this week for their coverage of far-left riots and for undercover videos that were released that show a director at the network admitting that they create “propaganda” and essentially work to destroy Republicans.
On Monday night, a man walked up to a CNN reporter who was covering a riot and unloaded on the network, saying the network twists stories.
“What I think about this, it’s all the press and all the extra s*** y’all do, makes this worse,” the man responded. “When people want to protest, they shouldn’t do it in front of a f***in’ police sta–, yeah, court house, s*** like that. You get what the f*** I’m saying? Y’all need to get up out of here with all that twisting that the media and s***.”
The man later dismissed the reporter’s comments that they were on live air, saying, “I don’t care if you’re live or not, get away from here with all that media s*** that y’all doing.”
