CBS ^

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – A photojournalist for CBS 5 San Francisco was beaten and robbed of his camera by a group of young men in Oakland following a live newscast report Wednesday.

Photographer Gregg Welk and reporter Anne Makovec had just finished their noon report on the passage of Prop 30 in front of Oakland Technical High School on the 4300 block of Broadway.

After the live shot, an unknown number of men rushed up, punched Welk and grabbed his camera, according to CBS 5 Communications Director Akilah Bolden-Monifa.

Why are the Amish always blamed? It could have been disgruntled LDS or JWs. /sarc

CBS - mugging? Probably when the report is prepared for the evening news, they will find a connection between the disgruntled muggers and G. W. Bush.

“But, I’m a journalist! I’m a progressive! I voted for OBAMA!!!”

“Shut yo’ mouf, mo’fo!”

Well, they DID get some “free stuff”/sarcasm

I won’t lie. I now chuckle at these stories. The media is
traditional America’s enemy. He is emplyed by CBS.

Enjoy the society you advanced.

Sounds like just another one of those cases where a firearm would have been far more useful than a microphone or a camera:

This from "fake but accurate" CBS. The report of an attack could be fiction from the get go, or self-inflicted in order to get sympathy.

Yep, comments on the original story are closed.

Can’t have people validating certain stereotypes.

Especially if they’re true.

I understand they escaped by horse and buggy although the cops are following a trail of horse poop!

What would you expect, really? The cameraman is lucky he wasn' t blamed, charged with racism, and fired.

A "group of young men", yeah, that's the ticket!

The headline state: “Reporters Attacked
By Mob Of Blacks At IHOP”

From the IHOP to the voting Polls.
BOW violence is everywhere incited and now protected
according to the DO”J” new rules.

One suspects this attack is again the tip of the iceberg
instigated by Holder and Obama.

I wonder if the cameraman will be charged because of the expensive camera and equipment he was flaunting in front of minorities unable to afford for themselves.

I heard on CBS that there is no doubt that the rich do not pay their fair share, you would think that a CBS employee would never do such a hateful thing as humiliating local under privileged children. He should apologize for his selfishness, but a stint of community service wouldn't hurt.

Had they not been in a technical High School, they probably wouldn’t have known the value of the camera equipment in order for this enterprising group of technically oriented youth to properly redistribute the income of the wealthy to their needy projects.

"A photojournalist for CBS 5 San Francisco was beaten and robbed of his camera by a group of young men in Oakland following a live newscast report Wednesday."

GOOD! It is a GOOD thing when the "news" media experiences the results of their constant support for the lawless Democrat Party Regime they have helped to put in place and keep in place in Washington.

It is a GOOD thing that the people of the Democrat Party Media experience the results of the "multicultural" society that they have ceaselessly promoted and uphold. ALL HAIL OBAMA!

They had to be Amish — they made their escape in one of those Amish Mercedes-Benz buggies.

CBS - mugging?

They used to say that a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged. Apparently mugging ain't what it used to be.

"It could have been disgruntled LDS..."

I saw a bunch of Mormons twittering about the riots they were going to start if Romney lost...they're probably just acting out on their rage.

“NO description of the perps... typical” And if this lsm journalist wants to keep his job, he’ll keep his mouth shut so the coverup of obama’s “sons” can continue.

If that were the case, the attackers would have been tea-partiers.

As no descriptions of these criminals are given, we may confidently assume the racial descriptions of the perps and be assured of almost 100% accuracy.

They are black...

See? This isn't hard at all.

So whitey camera guy got his ass kicked by sons of Buckwheat who looked like Buckwheat if Buckwheat had sons.

I’d suggest that the stupid-ass honkey buy at least a .380 pistol and learn how to use it. If the guy wants to get serious about close combat, he should hook up with samurai or Chinese Tai Chi Chuan sword masters and learn how to slice off noses and feet in combat situations.
