Tucker Carlson: “These are definitely not protesters, they are not even rioters They are armed militia of the Democratic party.”

There was a third shooting at the CHOP zone Tuesday morning, but @ABC , @CBSNews , and @NBCNews refused to cover it

The west was wild again. With the so-called “Capital Hill Occupy Protest” (CHOP) being the source of numerous accounts of arson, assaults, burglaries, property destruction, a rape, and three shootings, it’s no wonder that Seattle’s mayor, Jenny Durkan (D) had finally had enough of the “summer of love” and vowed to dismantle the “autonomous zone.” But all of that went unnoticed by ABC, CBS, and NBC on Tuesday, even though the latest shooting occurred before their morning shows went to air.

As NewsBusters reported on Monday, the broadcast networks weren’t interested in covering the multiple shootings that had happened at the so-called “mostly peaceful protest.” One of the shootings had left a black teenager dead.

But while these national news outlets were trying to hide the violence from their viewers, their local affiliates were keeping people informed. As KING 5, an NBC affiliate, reported Tuesday:

A man in his 30s was injured Tuesday morning in the third shooting since Saturday near the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” zone, also known as CHOP.

The Seattle Police Department (SPD) started to receive 911 calls at 4:37 a.m. about a man that had been shot in the 1100 block of East Denny Way, according to a SPD Blotter post. The location is by the northeast corner of Cal Anderson Park, which is near the CHOP.

OPENING THE FLOODGATES? Court: Injured officer can sue Black Lives Matter organizer. “A Louisiana police officer injured during protests over the 2016 killing of a black man can sue a Black Lives Matter organizer on the grounds he acted negligently by leading people to block a highway, a federal appeals court has ruled.”
