New York News 12 (Long Island) reporter Kevin Vesey attended a protest against Governor Cuomo’s iron-fisted lockdown of their state. As he attempted to get people to move off the sidewalk to let him through, protesters gave him an earful.
Here are a few of the comments directed at Vesey:
“You shouldn’t be here, you’re fake news!”
“Fake news coming through.”
“You stopped airing the Trump briefings and you keep airing the Cuomo briefings. Go home! You’re fake news!”
“You are the virus!”
“You’re a hack.”
“You say you’re unbiased. You’re not unbiased. You let so much crap fly on your Facebook page, it’s disgusting.”
Only one protester took it a little too far when he gave the reporter the middle finger, telling him, “F**k you, you’re fake news! The protester immediately shared his name with the reporter and told him to “go ahead, put me on TV.”
“C’mon Kevin, what did we talk about earlier?” one of the protesters asked.
Vesey tweeted the video, hoping to get some sympathy for the harsh words directed at him.
The level of anger directed at the media from these protestors was alarming. As always, I will tell a fair and unbiased story today.
President Trump retweeted the video, adding the chant from the protesters to the top of his tweet.
“FAKE NEWS IS NOT ESSENTIAL!”
Yesterday, after his video was retweeted by President Trump, Vesey shared a video to make himself look like a victim of the protesters. At the end of the video, Vesey adds that he’s received a lot of support from other journalists, celebrities and some elected officials [Democrats?]

President Trump doubled down, and again today, he retweeted the video. This time, he shared a different message:
“People can’t get enough of this. Great people!”
The level of anger and frustration at the Democrat Party’s media is boiling over, and it’s pretty clear Americans are no longer willing to sit back and pretend the media isn’t the enemy of the truth. President Trump started to shine a light on their lies and now the people are demanding the truth from them. The more they are called out, the more they scatter like cockroaches.
