For left-wing NBC News and its sister cable network, MSNBC, if you ignore a problem, it never happened. During a protest in Washington, D.C. this week, an angry mob attacked an NBC News crew shortly after midnight.

But NBC and MSNBC both refused to cover the incident, and pretended it never happened even though the harrowing scene was shared on a viral video posted by the Daily Caller‘s Shelby Talcott.

The video shows enraged protesters surrounding the NBC News crew and then chasing them when they ran away. One cameraman fell to the ground.

At some point, several protesters realized the crew was from MSNBC and urged the mob to stop attacking them.

Here’s how MSNBC opinion host Chris Hayes described the assault before the network cut the feed: “People in Lafayette Square Park, milling about five hours after curfew. The scene seems energetic but not in a state of unrest.”

Numerous Twitter users noted that NBC News refused to cover the incident because it would destroy the network’s contrived narrative that the protests were “peaceful.”

Left-wing media personalities contorted themselves to rabidly push this false narrative even as buildings burned and rioters looted in the background.

Check out these “peaceful protesters” assaulting a white truck driver while hijacking a state highway.

Here are more “peaceful protesters” hurling fire-cracking projectiles at a female MSNBC reporter. The left-wing network couldn’t hide this because the assault occurred during a live broadcast.

Over the weekend, an angry mob chased Fox News reporter Leland Vittert outside the White House amid nationwide riots allegedly protesting the death of George Floyd.

One “protester” grabbed Vittert’s microphone and then threw it back at it. Other thugs threw water on Vittert as he tried to run away to safety. Several thugs in the crowd shouted: “F*ck Fox News! F*ck Fox News! F*ck that fake-a*s news!”

Speaking of fake news, CNN’s Atlanta headquarters was vandalized and destroyed last weekend by the same rioters that the left-wing network constantly inflames with its race-baiting and grievance-mongering.

An angry mob gathered outside the CNN office in Atlanta, smashing windows and spray-painting over the CNN sign while shouting “F*ck CNN!”

Several thugs also threw exploding firecrackers into the lobby. At one point, rioters jumped on top of the CNN sign while brashlyholding a “Black Lives Matter” flag.

In response to the attack, Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike said CNN has only itself to blame for the riots.

“I love CNN,” Killer Mike said. “But what I’d like to say to CNN right now is: Karma’s a mother. STOP FEEDING FEAR AND ANGER EVERY DAY! Stop making people so fearful. Give them hope!”

Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson noted that even as CNN reporters were being heckled and its Atlanta headquarters was being destroyed, the network downplayed the violence because it didn’t fit its race-baiting narrative that white people are the true problem.

“This is true gaslighting,” Johnson tweeted. “CNN reporter on the ground in Minneapolis frantically insisting that the protesters are “peaceful” and “merry” as the same protesters tell him to go f*ck himself on live TV and throw bottles at him. Meanwhile, Atlanta CNN HQ burns.”
