Big Cry Country

You may have heard the brouhaha involving Montana GOP congressional candidate Greg Gianforte and Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs. Gianforte allegedly assaulted Jacobs earlier this week, and the MSM cannot clutch their pearls hard enough.

Yesterday, the incident’s eyewitness decided she was “modifying” her story.

A reporter who was a firsthand witness to an incident late Wednesday involving Montana GOP candidate Greg Gianforte and a reporter for the Guardian now admits she may have misstated some details of her initial story.

Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs claimed Gianforte, locked in a hotly contested special election for Congress, body-slammed him and broke his glasses at a campaign event Wednesday. Local authorities have brought misdemeanor assault charges against Gianforte.

Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna initially reported Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck, but later told Laura Ingraham Gianforte may have grabbed the reporter’s clothes. Pretty big difference if you ask me. For their part, the Gianforte camp offered this explanation of the incident:

“Tonight, as Greg was giving a separate interview in a private office, the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs entered the office without permission, aggressively shoved a recorder in Greg’s face, and began asking badgering questions,” the statement read. “Jacobs was asked to leave.”

“Greg then attempted to grab the phone that was pushed in his face,” the Gianforte statement continues, “Jacobs grabbed Greg’s wrist, and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground.”

Gee, I have a difficult time believing a member of the media would be such an aggressive douchebag… said no one ever. Look, I don’t condone the assault – if one even occurred – but the fact that the MSM gleefully cheers people assaulting Trump supporters keeps my empathy meter bone dry.

  1. Democraps only need to remember James Traficant, (D)ouchebag Ohio, and explain why they almost re-elected him when he was actually IN prison, having been convicted of taking bribes and racketeering . (Almost as in 25% of the vote.) You can read about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Traficant.
    I’d probably vote for Satan himself if it meant voting against a Democrap douche. The only problem with doing that is that most of the time, the demon Republican’ts are just as bad. As for the reporter, well, there should be an open season on those morons, with absolutely NO limit. I’d have voted for the guy in Montana too, mostly because he should get a reward for his actions. Reporters are the lowest form of scum on the planet.

  2. The dems would do well to remember their representative Bob Etheridge the next time they try and pull this garbage. Glass houses and all that stuff, you know. Glad the GOP prevailed.

  3. Cathy – Most of the stories I read have quotes from voters who were unfazed by the alleged assault. It should be a wake up call for obnoxious reporters who harass people.

    RG – Ohio is a constant disappointment for me. They elect people like Boehner and Kasich for cripes sake.

    Proof – Montana attracts a different type of person; namely, real Americans.

    Metoo – Wait, you mean Democrats are hypocrites when it comes to assaults? The hell you say!
