In case you didn’t already have enough evidence that the mainstream media is absolutely biased against President Trump, you won’t believe what Reuters is calling anti-Trump protesters. You know, people like Antifa and other groups that have added to the violence and mayhem ripping across our country?
According to The Daily Caller:
Reuters referred to anti-Trump protestors as “peace activists” in a tweet Tuesday, although police used tear gas and pepper spray to control the rowdy protestors that used rocks and water bottles as projectiles.
“Pro Trump supporters face off with peace activists outside a Trump rally in Phoenix,” Reuters tweeted.
The protesters gathered outside a President Trump campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona amid a heavy police presence to keep the peace. Some “began fighting and throwing rocks and bottles at police,” Sgt. Jonathan Howard of the Phoenix Police Department told CNN. Officers used tear gas to manage the thousands of protesters, and told everyone following the rally to leave or face arrest.
Some protesters hung around chanting “No Trump! No KKK! No racist U.S.A!” and some held signs, one reading “make racists scared again.” Police arrested three people.
The Washington Post also referred to the protestors as “peace activists,” and like Reuters did not elaborate on who counts as a peace activist or otherwise qualify the term.
The backlash prompted deletion of the original tweet and this “correction:”

It’s a given that every media source, to some degree, is biased, but it’s like the mainstream media isn’t even trying to hide it anymore. They’re openly against the president — and proud of their work!
According to the left, if you’re a Republican, you’re a racist, and if you’re against Trump, you’re some sort of folk hero worthy of being immortalized in song.
Without a truly free press, one that at least attempts to be objective, how can “we, the people” make sound decisions and hold our elected officials accountable?
We can’t, and that’s probably been the plan from the beginning.
