NewsBusters and this author have repeatedly pointed out how MSNBC and NBC have been a reliable safe harbor for the left-wing domestic terrorist group known as Antifa. And they back at it again, with Sunday Today anchor Willie Geist and White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell scoffed at claims from the White House and the Department of Justice that Antifa was partially to blame for violent rioting across the county, corrupting protests demanding justice for George Floyd.
Failing to mention the Secret Service official injured during a riot outside the White House on Friday, Geist downplayed the violence from Saturday night. “Protests continued last night outside of the White House as well, and across Washington where police broke up crowds by firing tear gas and pepper spray at protesters,” he began. “This as President Trump and Attorney General William Barr blame left-wing anarchist groups for the violence.”
There was a pointed tone of skepticism as O’Donnell started talking about how President Trump wanted officials to “get tougher on those agitators and those causing violence.” Adding, “Who he says are part of a radical left activism that seeks to cause chaos, not seeking justice for George Floyd.”
