"Portland police said some protesters lit fires in the street and tried several times to set them at the courthouse doors."

Were those "protesters" or "rioters"???

"Some in the crowd this weekend used radio frequency jammers...."
Isn't that a violation of federal law??

"... and shot pellet and airsoft guns to injure officers"
again.. isn't that a violation of federal law??

"Some of the demonstrators also tried to barricade federal officers inside the courthouse and set the building on fire, Kupec said."
Yet another violation of federal law??

"...agents have been assaulted with lasers, bats, fireworks, bottles and other weapons and “yet the city of Portland takes little to no action.”
More violations of federal law?

"....protests against racial injustice in Portland attracted thousands and were largely peaceful, though smaller groups vandalized federal property and police buildings and clashed violently with authorities."
"Protesters" or "rioters"??

"PDX Dad Pod"
WTF is a "PDX Dad Pod"???

Portland is a city brimming with drunks, old hippies, skinheads, homosexuals, and NPR adoring soccer moms. It's a weird, weird place.

This morning (Sat.) they had a story about a young girl protester in Shelby Twp.being hollered at by a man but nothing about what she might have been saying to him that started it.

Why do you assume the girl was the provocateur? Maybe she didn't say a damn thing to the man?

Because we know what it means when the media shows tapes starting in the middle and proclaims one party is an innocent angel and the other is a bad evil horrible guy

I think maybe the tide is shifting a bit with these protests, especially when people see the rioting and looting happening in places like Portland and Seattle during these "protests". So the media has to do their job and make it seem like all protesters are just super peaceful angels. Its a shame because a certain purposely violent element has creeped into these "protests" that are taking a legitimate moment and turning it into something destructive and violent.

Staffing of these locals is mostly younger liberal millenials. It is to be expected. Experienced level headed pros are set aside in some instances to allow room. It's not legal but it happens. Happened to me. So, now we are all subjected to the new generation of interpreted data. Cops are bad. Protesters are good, rioters don't exist. BLM. Meh. If it enrages, lead with it. Cuz, we need our jobs and the bean counters need beans.

Today Alicia used the headline "MAN SHOT BY A DETROIT COP" regarding the issue last night, when in reality it should have read more like "SUSPECT SHOT BY A DETROIT COP". I think those two leads give the viewer a completely different perspective of what really happened, and I think WXYZ is doing it intentionally.

Go ahead, keep fanning the flames until the city (and your viewership) is destroyed again. Completely eliminate all the progress that Gilbert, Iliche's, Ford, Duggan and Craig have done over the last ~10 years and get the city solidly back to 'shithole' status and be proud of what you accomplished!!! "7 on your side"??? I DON'T THINK SO!! What a joke!

Both imply someone was shot by a Detroit cop. Unless you think most people are 5 I’m pretty sure they can figure out what it means.

If I ever get interviewed by a TV station, I'm going to have someone recording the interview with their phone. That way, if the station edits it to make it sound different than what I said, I can post what really happened on YouTube or FB or whatever.
7 did this to a friend of mine. A few years ago Jonathan Carlson interviewed someone I know. What was on TV was edited to sound nothing like what my friend was saying.

I pretty much have turned off the TV.

The bias on copy writing/editing is pretty bad from the supposed capital "J"ournalists.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Alicia the Hutt just did an anchor bit talking past the video of the latest gangster pointing a gun at the cops and getting shot, and shading that Chief Craig needs to get fired
