    the whole point is at least 2 Democratic elected officials called for violence so far.

    In addition to fake doctor notes, and prank phone calls it goes to show you the lengths the far left will go to hold onto power.

    When some talk about on the fly news , palm trees and minor errors, they miss the fact that the so called Paper of record just doesnt cover Democratic party violence. But its main guy Krugman, likes to talk out about the republicans.

    Do you write for The Onion? OMG! The far left is so out of hand. Stop them before they show up to protest with their grammatically correct picket signs.

    Haha! Unbelievable! It is so clear from watching the whole context of the video that they were in no way trying to misrepresent watchers into believing that the footage was meant to portray the protests in madison at the moment the reporter was speaking. He's merely describing the "mixed bag", as he called it and then the footage goes to protesters just as a filler for the audience and showing that the protesters are also coming from different areas -- to be part of this "mixed bag" being talked about.

    It's when he reshowed it while Mike Tobin exaggerated/lied about how he was treated in WI. That video shown during that conservation certainly suggests (chiron aside) that the video playing in the background is what they're referring to. Why show it again unless it's purpose was to suggest it supported Tobin's apparently false claims? Why not show the footage of Tobin being "assaulted" in Madison? I'll tell you why. Because it never happened.

    I don't think anybody is suggesting he was assaulted, merely heckled a lot. That can be very frustrating when you're trying to report and people are screaming "fox lies" really close to you and putting their anti-fox signs everywhere.

    I saw the report and he said on hair: "He just hit me!" Look it up on the YouTube. There are also reports that he purposely waded into the middle of the protesters and began to provoke them (some of which is caught on camera as he claimed that they "hate the media" and "teacher said she hated me because it made her feel good."

    If Tobin even had a passing resemblance to a reporter, I'd feel sympathetic. But in none of his "reporting" does he ever ask the protesters why they're there. What they hope to accomplish, or anything else that could be construed as "on scene reporting."
