Reports published Thursday state that media companies are hiring security guards to protect reporters at President Trump rallies in the wake of raucous, non-violent protests against CNN’s Jim Acosta at recent Trump rallies.
ABC’s Tara Palmeri said Trump supporters were “riled up in mass” but “very friendly one-on-one”.
What has not been reported in the smear job against Trump supporters by the media is this fact: NO TRUMP SUPPORTER HAS ATTACKED A REPORTER AT ANY TRUMP RALLY.
This writer covered many Trump rallies in Florida in 2016 and one in 2017 and witnessed no violence against reporters.
A Google search of ‘Trump rally “reporter attacked”‘ shows no returns, which jibes with this writer’s recollection.
Despite endless caterwauling by the anti-Trump media that Trump’s rhetoric criticizing the media would provoke violence against reporters by Trump supporters it has never happened.
(For the nitpickers out there, the bogus Corey Lewandowski incident with Michelle Fields doesn’t count._
The Politico article which broke the story Thursday about the media hiring security for Trump rallies cites no actual attacks on reporters by Trump supporters at Trump rallies. NONE.
