(Natural News) There’s something particularly off-putting about a media outlet using its resources to aggressively demonize fellow journalists and defend lethal violence carried out by anarchists and common criminals.

Yet that is exactly what The Intercept did today.

In a 24-minute video entitled “Meet the Riot Squad: Right-Wing Reporters Whose Viral Videos Are Used to Smear BLM,” The Intercept attempted to target and delegitimize eight conservative journalists for their continued documentation of left-wing violence throughout the nation.

In the opening of a preview of the video released on Twitter, the Intercept singled out journalist Julio Rosas, who filmed black-bloc rioters smashing out the windows of the Democratic Party offices in Portland, Oregon, on Inauguration Day.

The Intercept stated that Rosas “specializes in shooting viral video of mayhem at left-wing protests,” and attempted to undermine the credibility of his reporting for no other reason than that his content appeared in conservative news outlets.

To this, one might reasonably respond: Why is there so much violence at left-wing protests that one can make a literal career out of filming it?

Undeterred, The Intercept moved on and doubled down on its claims that both conservative journalists and police were a threat to America.

“It’s important to keep in mind that the conservative media has been working almost nonstop to undercut the movement for black lives by spreading the lie that the nation’s main problem is the protesters, not the police,” senior Intercept writer Robert Mackey narrated.

It’s a shame, really, that a senior reporter did not bother addressing any of the evidence against his own position.

For instance, he might have attempted to deal with the fact that the George Floyd riots resulted in upwards of $2 billion in damage and 25 deaths.
