During his report, the crowd chanted “Fox News lies” while Rivera attempted to yell back at the crowd. Kwame Rose confronted Rivera with this impassioned speech:
“I want you and Fox News to get out of Baltimore City because you’re not hear reporting about the boarded up homes and the homeless people under MLK. You’re not reporting about the poverty levels up and down North Ave. Two years ago, when the 300 men marched from Milton & North to Hilton & North, you weren’t here. But you’re here for the Black riots that happened. You’re not here for the death of Freddie Gray. You’re here for the story.”
Kudos to Kwame!
Of course, Geraldo Rivera went on Fox News the next day and said the protestor was being “annoying and and obstructionist” and got in the way of an important story.
