Cue the dramatics.
Republican Greg Gianforte was declared the winner of the Montana special election for the House of Representatives that was held on Thursday, despite audio of him allegedly body-slamming Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs.
Shortly after his win, CNN anchor John Vause spoke to reporter Kyung Lah who was at Democrat challenger Rob Quist headquarters, and he expressed fear for her safety.
“As reporters, insults (and) abuse it’s part of the job. But it seems that the tone and the mood there among, what a lot of voters many voters in Montana, it’s gone beyond that. Is that what you are experiencing and seeing first hand?” he asked.
“It’s very surprising and I don’t know how to describe it other than to say I’m taken aback by it,” she said. “It’s almost like group think that, when they don’t take the time to get to know you, to find out if you might be a human being or might have children, or parents or where you live. If they don’t engage with you as a human and they only see you as part of a block, the mainstream media, they don’t take to that very kindly.”
“I feel weird saying this but stay safe out there,” Vause said dramatically.
The media being the collective victim has become the latest mantra in an effort to smear Donald Trump, who they are trying to blame for the ‘hostile’ environment that lead to Jacob’s body slam. On Thursday, Chris Cuomo played martyr ‘super hero’ when he lamented ‘tough times‘ for the media.
