That seems like a major thing to leave out of the story.

The Daily Caller reports:

NYT Writes Nearly 1,500 Words On Berkeley With ZERO Mention Of Antifa

The New York Times published a nearly 1,500-word feature on University of California, Berkeley and the surrounding Free Speech Week planned by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, without once mentioning Antifa.

The Friday article also references the political right more than 10 times, but does not mention the political left, except when referencing UC Berkeley’s “reputation as a liberal bastion” and citing Yiannopoulos’ view of “liberal intolerance of opposing views.”

“They call themselves antifascist and because they’re of the left, the media have granted them that title,” conservative author Ben Shapiro told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The media generally just have not covered Antifa … They don’t know that Antifa threatened violence to the extent [that] they shut down a normal Republican parade in Portland months ago.”

TheNYT did, however, mention a poll conducted by the Brookings Institution, in which a plurality of university students surveyed asserted that the First Amendment did not protect hate speech.

They don’t know that Antifa threatened violence to the extent [that] they shut down a normal Republican parade in Portland months ago.”

It was not a Republican parade. It was a normal civic parade that Portland has held every year for decades, in which the GOP usually participates together with many other groups. These Black Bloc thugs demanded that the GOP be banned from the parade, or else they would disrupt it. Unwilling to give in to this demand, but also unwilling to risk a scene and people possibly getting hurt, the city cancelled the whole parade.
