“You’re not here for the death of Freddie Gray! You’re here for the story!” protesters in Baltimore yelled at Fox News reporters, including Geraldo Rivera.
The protesters continue to swarm the streets, demanding “Justice for Freddie Gray!” But in spite of the fact that everyone wanted to get their message out, they weren’t going to be duped by the mainstream media and their biased media coverage.
One protester rushed Rivera and called him out, along with his notoriously-biased employer.
Watch it for yourself in the video below…
Geraldo tries to dodge the confrontation, but a young man on the scene persisted and keeps calling him out.
“You want to report that we’re thugs and breaking sh-t down!”
“I want you and Fox News to get out of Baltimore City, because you’re not here reporting about the boarded up homes and the homeless people under MLK,” he continued. “You’re not reporting about the poverty levels up and down North Avenue.”
He asked further where Fox was during the 300 Man March, noting that Fox only turned out to catch a glimpse of anecdotes of destruction.
“You’re not here for the death of Freddie Gray! You’re here for the story!”
“This is real Baltimore,” he continued. “This is where people have to wake up and wonder where they gonna go to get a meal.”
State Senate Majority Leader Catherine Pugh asked Geraldo to leave after he turned from the angry members of the community who he broadly painted as “vandals.”
Pugh said that the mainstream media was “just inciting people,” adding that “Fox News don’t give a damn about black people.”
