UNREAL. Mayor De Blasio Blasts Media for Reporting on Protest Violence (Video)

Mayor De Blasio blasted the media today for having the gall to report on the violent Mike Brown-Eric Garner protesters.

Mediaite reported:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio got pretty testy at his press conference today after being asked about hateful language being used by protesters who have been taking to the streets all month. When asked about certain protesters chanting things like “NYPD KKK” or “dead cops,” de Blasio scolded the reporter who asked the question, and the media at large, for hyping the bad actors in disservice to the majority of peaceful protesters.

The protests in New York that were already going on in reaction to the grand jury decision in the case of Michael Brown, but the protests grew large when the Eric Garner grand jury returned with a non-indictment too. De Blasio took offense at the question about hateful protesters and asked, “Are you gonna keep dividing us?”

He touted the weeks of peaceful, non-violent protests, and said, “What you managed to do is pull up the few who do not represent the majority, who are saying unacceptable things.” The mayor ever went so far as to suggest the media is enabling conflict by hyping it so much.
