Fox News Highlights Antifa Attacks on Mainstream Conservatives in Seattle

August 20th, 2018 9:08 PM

In the last couple of days, FNC's Fox and Friends has given attention to the far-left violent group Antifa -- which is sometimes defended by the liberal media -- who have a history of making attacks on not only mainstream conservatives but also on the dominant left-leaning media.

On Sunday, talk radio host Tammy Bruce appeared as a guest and discussed the recent attacks on an NBC News team in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, on Monday, the Daily Caller's Katherine Hamill recounted attacks on gun rights protesters in Seattle from the weekend.



On Sunday, host Ed Henry set up the segment:

An NBC News crew attacked by Antifa members -- you can see it right here -- while covering Charlottesville, the one year anniversary, last week. Why did that network and others ignore it in their own reporting when they had the video that we're showing you right now?

Henry soon theorized that "going after Antifa doesn't fit the narrative for many in the mainstream media, and they overlook that even though they normally are very concerned about violence against the media."

On Monday's show, at 6:46 a.m. Eastern, co-host Ainsley Earhardt recalled that Antifa members had chanted against protesters in Seattle over the weekend, calling them "Nazis," and then co-host Brian Kilmeade clarified: "The problem is, they're not Nazis. The protests in Seattle are just one of a growing number of hate-filled demonstrations by far-left groups happening across the country."

They then spent a few weeks with Hamill as she recalled her experiences of being harassed by Antifa members at events where mainstream conservatives have been attacked.
