POW, BANG, WOW, BOOM Don't fall for the MSM doing this to you...

or anyone else, for that matter.

There's been lots of hype about the protests at the DNC.  Frankly, compared to the 1968 convention, these kids are pikers.  The video below shows the MSM trying to get us all excited about a small group of tatted up, filthy looking young people causing mayhem. 

The Fox news people are breathless with excitement and touting the magnitude of the crowd.  Ah, in a word, no.  Notice the clever camera angles of the crowd to try and make it look like there's thousands of people there?  There's not.

Another video at at Fox 29, in which the Philly police commissioner declares the whole affair to be a bit of a nothing burger.  The Fox "news" man on the street was very disappointed and the expression on the commissioner's face is priceless. Commissioner Ross has obviously had plenty of interaction with the press and I applaud him for not rolling his eyes. 

CBS Philly, not wanting to be left out of the action, posted Chaotic Scene Outside Wells Fargo Center After Protesters Breach DNC Security Fence accompanied with the usual footage.

The first video was posted by Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit.  I like Jim, but in his zeal to get Trump elected, he can sometimes get overly loose with his words.  His headlines are replete with words like "Wow, "Breaking", and "Chaos".  Jim is being aided and abetted by one Mike Cernovich, a man who has mastered the art of self promotion.  Both of them make me tired.

Aren't we all exhausted enough with what is starting to feel like a twenty year election cycle to have to endure such sensationalism from the press - on both sides of the aisle?

As always - don't believe the crapola you're being fed.  Do your own research and think for yourselves.
