CBS&#39;s John Blackstone played up how &quot;the protesters gathered at the Roseburg airport carried both signs and guns &ndash; a potential nightmare for the Secret Service.&quot; NBC Nightly News featured footage of a Confederate flag flying from pickup truck of one of the protesters &ndash; something ABC and CBS didn&#39;t do.</p>
