<p>On Monday, all three network morning shows covered the violent May Day rioting that broke out across Seattle on Sunday. However, the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts made sure to tout how <strong>&ldquo;the march began as a peaceful demonstration for the rights of workers and immigrants.&rdquo;</strong> No liberal labels were used to characterize the protesters and the reporters avoided explaining the Communist roots of the day.</p>

<p>On NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em>, co-host Matt Lauer described: &ldquo;Violent May Day clashes in Seattle between anti-capitalist demonstrators and the police.&rdquo; Correspondent Gadi Schwartz explained: &ldquo;Police say they tried to take a hands-off approach, but when people started throwing things at them, they had to switch from crowd control into riot mode.&rdquo;</p>
