Sunday night, a local CBS Photojournalist was attacked by Antifa protesters. The photojournalist was standing on the sidelines of the protest filming with his iPhone when he was attacked. He was not on duty at the time.


The reporter sustained a head injury requiring four staples:

According to the local CBS affiliate:

The journalist, who was not working for the station at the time, was using his phone to record video of a large crowd of Monument Avenue protesters passing by The Camel, a live music venue, on West Broad Street.

“Stop filming bro,” one protester yelled.

“I can film whatever I want,” the CBS 6 staffer replied. “Get out of my face.”

At that point video showed the employee’s phone knocked out of his hands. Video then captured a protester hit the employee with what he described as a big stick.

Police officers responded and the photojournalist was transported via ambulance to the hospital, where he received four staples in his scalp. He was later released from the hospital.

“This is not a peaceful protest,” he wrote.

Additionally, a marked WTVR CBS 6 crew on the scene captured video of one protester who was concealing a baseball bat.

Where I am on this:

Best way to get rid of these loons is to refuse to give their publicity stunts any oxygen.
