a) I don't believe you
b) "Journalists" aren't allowed to break the law either.
c) Get back in your jail cell you might as well get used to it there.

Insanity or mental incapacity is probably a better defense at this point.

Turn that frown upside down.
Now journalists have golden opportunity to document the current incarceration system in America.
Y'all just be you.
 
2021-04-18 4:01:03 PM  
No, you were there because you're a shiatbird seeking validation from your shiatflock.

I believe some of them wer definitely just... Let's check this out.

However, your points A and B still apply.

Ain't nothin' quite like a White person trying to figure out where their privilege went.

Gotta be some angle. Keep twisting til you find it.

curious to see their body of journalistic work.

Did you get pepper sprayed by the cops? Then you aren't a journalist.

Your honor my client is cleary mentally deficient. I mean come on, he believed Donald Trump!

Wait... Donnie say journalists the enemy of the people...if I remember correctly he came up with this term...Fake News.

What's up with that???

Yeah, no

Yeah, and Hitler didn't hate the Jews, he was just trying to ensure Jerusalem didn't become over crowded.
 
2021-04-18 6:53:26 PM  
Like many journalists, they came up through the ranks and proof readers and copy editors, looking for bad grammar.
 
2021-04-18 6:55:13 PM  
An important question to ask: by 'documenting America's fall', are they talking about the attempted coup itself and the immense damage it did to our democracy, or are they spouting off about some election conspiracies about how Biden is illegitimate?

'Cause if it's the latter, no benefit of the doubt and completely disregard their nonsense.
 
2021-04-18 6:56:08 PM  
Were you just there over the summer to document BLM protests too? No?

EABODAGFY!

The guy was just a journalist covering Lee Harvey Oswald story.

I wasn't there to rob the bank, I was just there to wait for someone else to rob the bank and then rob him.

Well they can document prison life,i'm sure as loud and proud Trumpers,their dance cards will quickly fill up.

Eat shiat trumpers and you too libertarians because we know you vote for republicans.

Great, then they should have no trouble producing their press credentials.
 
2021-04-18 7:04:33 PM  
Every single one of them should have been aborted.
 
2021-04-18 7:04:56 PM  
Okay, if you've published a factual, non-opinion article or news clip prior to the insurrection and you received compensation, you get a pass. You're a free-lance journalist.

How many of y'all does that leave? All?
 
2021-04-18 7:08:40 PM  
It's safe to assume that exactly zero actual journalists were inside the Capitol Building, yes? Like, that's not a thing any journalist with any ethics or integrity would do. Or am I wildly off somehow?

There may have been an actual journalist inside, yes.

But they were already in there.
 
2021-04-18 7:15:05 PM  
Come one now, who hasn't tried to overturn an election now or then?

...not these guys.

culebra: Great, then they should have no trouble producing their press credentials.


Credentials are for the echo-chamber conformists. We're talking about sovereign journalists of the people.
And they simply walked through the open doors* of the people's house.


*Or windows...for on that day, windows became doors. Were you there?

It's true! Here's a picture of a journalist for the Buffalo News:

In my experience, these are usually the same people that complain that "everyone is just pulling their phones out" instead of helping someone when there's a problem.
 
2021-04-18 7:18:28 PM  
They've been telling us journalists were the enemy of America this whole time, turns out they were the 'journalists' all along.
 
2021-04-18 7:21:41 PM  
What's the difference between a reporter and a journalist?
A reporter has a job.
 
2021-04-18 7:27:04 PM  
I suppose your journalist self can video and report on your terrorist self, but it's a sign you're pretty shiatty at both journalism and terrorism.

Journalists typically don't break down doors and storm into hallways where they don't belong.

Biden is finishing the job. Hes not in charge but hes doing what hes told.

To be fair, most right wingn "journalists" are actively trying to overthrow the US, so I can see why their audience would confuse the two things

Back when I was a reporter I used to crash through police lines and beat up cops all the time in pursuit of a story.
