Not a lot of sympathy for the media

I'm going to leave judgment about this incident to the courts but the reality is I think a lot of people have felt the same frustration for the prissy elitist media.
There are a few times in my life where I wouldn't have minded slapping the shit out of a couple of the talking heads in the media.

Montana Voters Are Supportive Of Congressional Candidate Body Slamming A Reporter
Several Montana voters like that Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body slammed a Guardian reporter, according to local reports.

Gianforte threw down reporter Ben Jacobs to the ground at a campaign event Wednesday night. This came the day before a special election in Montana where Gianforte has held a solid lead in the polls over Democrat Rob Quist.

The Montana Republican was charged with misdemeanor assault by local police, but has denied Jacob’s version of the incident, saying that the reporter was aggressive and grabbed him by the wrist.

MSNBC political correspondent Garrett Haake tweeted Thursday that a Gianforte voter told him, “I think reporters have it coming.” Haake tweeted yesterday that he told a gas station clerk about the incident and she replied, “My kind of politician.”~snip~
There maybe more than a few as the article states, anyway if he loses then the media will crow about how they "got" him.
If he wins then they'll cry about being victims.
