Republicans have gone from verbally attacking the press, to physically attacking them. Yesterday, a Republican candidate for Congress physically assaulted a journalist from the Guardian during an interview, slamming him to the ground. The tech millionaire, endorsed by Donald Trump, is running in Montana’s special election today to fill the open seat in the House. Before conservatives attack this as fake news, the assault was corroborated by people from Fox News who witnessed the attack.
Audio of Greg Gianforte attacking Ben Jacobs corroborated by Fox News journalists in the room, who described candidate ‘slamming him to the ground’
