Conservative Media Face Violent Assaults and More While Covering Riots

"The person who was allegedly knocked out is a well-known local troll who collabs w/nazis and has been spreading conspiracy theories..."

Among the many disturbing reports of anti-police violence and arson emerging from a new spate of race riots on Wednesday, at least two conservative journalists appear to have been critically wounded by the leftist protesters.

Infowars reporter Savanah Hernandez was assaulted and robbed while covering the unrest in Austin, Texas, the site reported.

Hernandez had spent the evening gathering high-impact footage that appeared to show tensions between white Antifa interlopers and black demonstrators protesting the dearth of charges for Louisville police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor.

In Asheville, North Carolina, meanwhile, SKYline News reporter Chad Nesbitt was hospitalized with a brain injury after being assaulted, reported the Nationalist Review.

According to one witness account, a friend of Nesbitt’s was pushed into him, causing him to crack his skull on a parking meter near the city’s police department.

Another Twitter-user suggested that the rioters may have bashed his skull on a fire hydrant.

Rioters reportedly continued to hover over the unconscious Nesbitt afterward, claiming “no one is touching” him.

Some also celebrated his life-threatening injury on social media, referring to Nesbitt as a “troll who collabs w/nazis.”

Among those sending their sympathies to Nesbitt and his family was Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, who is currently running for governor of the state.

In addition to the injuries to journalists, the Daily Caller said that its reporters were arrested as part of a mass detention while covering the riot in Louisville.

And TownHall’s Julio Rosas, one of the most prominent names to emerge in conservative-media coverage of the ongoing race riots, was doxed by Antifa, who tweeted his location while on the scene in Louisville.

Material threats aside, conservative media also continuing to wage an ongoing battle against tech-company censorship.

YouTube controversially continued to age-restrict videos depicting the violence, preventing them from being playable on outside websites if embedded.

Twitter and Facebook also were filtering many of the shocking scenes behind warnings that required viewers to click in order to access them.
