    MT Congressional Candidate Assaults Reporter

    And for the rightwads out there, it was corroborated by Faux News.

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.foxne...orter.amp.html

    Three observations: 1) Fox will probably fire these reporters. 2) I honestly think this will help energize Gianforte's supporters and help GOP turnout. Really, I do . 3) If this guy wins tomorrow then we are officially dead as a nation.

    All of a sudden the left is against violence?

    Maybe him and Jesse Ventura can get together in a room.

    I suspect you are dead right with what you say in No. 2. Beating up a reporter will undoubtedly resonate with his supporters.

    No shit. It was sarcasm.

    Actually I'm surprised we don't see more stories about "in your face" reporters getting punched in the face.

    in your face?

    isn't the very nature of a reporter to be 'in your face' to a certain extent? asking difficult questions and pressing for answers is kind of part of the job description.....


    if you cannot handle questions about your positions and policies, perhaps you should not seek public office

    Hahaha - that's awesome. Young wimp got his ass kicked by a 56 year old man.

    This is what's wrong with our world today. In Sparta Ben Jacobs would have been punted as a baby. In today's society the weak, ugly and sickly reproduce which creates a product like Ben Jacobs and he's even allowed to reproduce.
    We need more Sparta!!

    Getting punched in the face for being like that should also be in the job description. I know I would do it if harassed by reporters like that.

    That is because most politicians are adults.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
