My Take On GOP House Candidate Greg Gioforte 'Body Slamming' Guardian Reporter Ben Jacobs



FOX News: Greg Gianforte: Fox News team witnesses GOP House candidate 'body slam' reporter

The race to fill Montana's sole seat in the U.S. House of Representatives took a violent turn Wednesday, and a crew from the Fox News Channel, including myself, witnessed it firsthand.

As part of our preparation for a story about Thursday's special election to air on "Special Report with Bret Baier," we arranged interviews with the top two candidates, Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist. On Wednesday, I joined field producer Faith Mangan and photographer Keith Railey in Bozeman for our scheduled interview with Gianforte, which was to take place at the Gianforte for Congress Bozeman Headquarters.

Faith, Keith and I arrived early to set up for the interview in a room adjacent to another room where a volunteer BBQ was to take place. As the time for the interview neared, Gianforte came into the room. We exchanged pleasantries and made small talk about restaurants and Bozeman.

Update: Republican candidate charged with assault, roiling Trump's Montana test (Reuters)

WNU Editor: Will this impact today's special election in Montana today .... I do not know ... two thirds of the voters have already voted in advanced polls. As for what's my own take on what Greg Gianforte did .... a candidate who is on the verge of winning an easy election .... talk about being stupid. If you lose your cool over a simple question .... what happens when you are faced with a really difficult question? But what I find interesting about this incident is the U.S. media coverage of it .... specifically many blaming President Trump for it .... Joe Scarborough: Greg Gianforte Assault Unsurprising in ‘Age of Trump’ (Mediaite). This only validates last week's Harvard University study that exposes how bias the media is against President Trump .... Harvard University Study: The Mainstream Media’s Is Biased Against President Trump (May 19, 2017), as well as validating my own personal opinion that President Trump has truly gotten under the skin of the main stream media and the progressive left. In short .... if someone does something stupid or there is a horrible incident somewhere in the world .... the first thing that goes in the mind of the media is to blame Trump.

dear editor

This is not an anti Trump issue. Not a media dumping on Trump issue. This may be a very agressive man who overstepped boundaries and needs anger manaagement. It may also be a legal issue. Why do you deflect to Trump?

War News Updates Editor said...

Fred. I am not deflecting to Trump. I am just pointing out what the media is doing. Since this story broke out .... the media .... after talking about the incident .... have (with almost no exceptions) .... bring up President Trump. President Trump has no bearing on this incident .... none .... zero. But the fact that the media is bringing up President Trump after this incident tells me that President Trump is truly in their heads, and they are seeing everything with a President Trump angle to it.

Here is an example on what I am talking about (from Newsweek) ....

"biased"
Pay no attention to imprecise pronunciation which you will hear.
Just like "prejudice/prejudiced." Noun vs adjective.

"Today, most large U.S. media outlets are prejudiced and biased against the President, to a degree not seen in living memory."

It's funny to me that the straight story isn't enough.
That's some pretty awful-sounding audio.

Unknown said...

And this FOX report wouldn't seem to help the candidate's legal case.
Is Gianforte now having a conversation like this with his attorneys?--"Oh, that wasn't justified?...But it was my territory!...Oh...okay...well, he got pretty close!...I felt in danger for my well-being...natural reaction, I thought...okay...Well, hopefully the FOX crew will back me up...pretty sure they will..."

I wish this this happened in my country. A lot of journalists behave extremely provocative and think they can get away with it. I would vote for this guy any minute of the day whatever party or program he supports. A real man.

And with this post, you show you are completely in the bag for Trump and are also starting to show signs of authotarian tendencies.

Giantorte's been arrested, charged with battery, made bail, but will have his day in Court,

He's also going to get his ass sued.

He'll probably have to sell off some of his Russian assets to cover costs.

I would vote for him. Italian stallion and a good christian.

LMFAO,

I vote for people based on their platforms and policies,

You vote for people based on their "studlyness" and embrace of hipocracy,

LMFAO

Jay, this really isn't that big of a big deal. Women do that all the time, purposely get themselves pregnant against the will of the father. The reasoning may be different, but it happens. What's it matter?
