The mainstream media’s frequent use of the term “mostly peaceful” to describe simmering protests that inevitably turn violent has taken a beating over the last few weeks, and justifiably so.

There is literally not a day that goes by where there is not some glaring instance of a media outlet like the New York Times or Reuters gaslighting about how protests were “mostly peaceful” or otherwise “dying down” until federal law enforcement officers had the nerve to step in to stop the anarchy.

People are fed up with it, and are refusing to let the media get away with continuing to insult the intelligence of the American people.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume, a veteran journalist, has also had enough of the “peaceful protests” spin from the media and took to the Twitter machine recently to give his thoughts on how reporters determine a rioter is a “mostly peaceful” protester.

The example he used was this video from independent journalist Andy Ngo of a rioter who jumped over a barrier to launch an incendiary device at the courthouse in Portland, which my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported on yesterday:

Hume saw the video, and noted how the mainstream media would still end up characterizing this violent rioter as a “mostly peaceful” protester in spite of his anarchistic actions:

Is he spot-on or what? It all makes sense now.

CNN’s Jake Tapper was one media figure who became fauxfended after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) played a video during the Bill Barr hearing that showed reporters absurdly characterizing the anarchy in cities like Portland and Seattle as “peaceful protests” or “mostly peaceful.” Tapper ranted on “The Lead” about how Jordan allegedly lied – and even demanded an apology, but we didn’t hear much more from him on the matter after receipts were dropped to back up Jordan’s point.
