        This past weekend I was watching local chicago news and it reported on the demonstrations in Portland.

        They referred to it as a demonstration by "right wing groups" and "counter protesters" and "those who oppose" the right wings groups.
        Oddly, the name "Antifa" was never mentioned, only "right wing" groups.

          I noticed the same difference in tone. The radical Right wing groups, or how they are "hate groups" often citing the SPLC as a source. Antifa is never referred to as radical Leftists, Anarchists, or Communists.

          Some examples:

          CBS news:

          "...far-Right group..." versus "Antifa."

          https://www.cbsnews.com/news/proud-b...-live-updates/

          "far Right groups" versus "far Left anti-Fascist activists"

          "Right wing groups" versus "counter-protesters."

          The far-right forces were largely identifiable by their camouflage body armor and helmets, while the far-left antifa groups covered their faces with masks or bandanas.
          Or
          In addition to the Proud Boys, the white nationalist American Guard and the Three Percenters, a far-right militia, have said they will have members in Portland. Hate group watchdogs say the Daily Stormers, a neo-Nazi group, are also expected.
          Versus

          The presence of Rose City Antifa, one of the country's oldest antifa group, has also been a lure for far-right groups.

          Note the difference. The groups on the Right are specifically called out for their stances and politics while the groups on the Left are at most called "anti-Fascist." There's no mention of the Leftist's tendency to violence or of their political leanings. They are never called "Communists" or "Anarchists."

          In the one quote above, the groups on the Right are characterized as wearing "camouflage body armor and helmets" while those on the Left "...covered their faces with masks and bandanas." Note the subtle difference here. The Right groups are made to sound militarized and ready for combat, while the Left groups are simply being anonymous but not particularly threatening.

          This was the general tone taken by most of the MSM towards this protest.

            There was also no video of the antifa groups.
            Their face coverings and all black attire is hardly the image the MSM seems to want to convey about the "counter protesters"

              I think this is one of the more objective news clips I've seen on this:

                Here's a good example of a Fox news viewer. All the talking points, sounds like every other conservative. It's a royal brainwashing and they don't notice.

                  How'd you figure out that guy, or anybody in that video is a "Fox news viewer?" Otherwise, both people in that video are basically grade AAA+ aholes.

                      Because that's what Rush and Hannity say all day long. They learn it somewhere.

                        Here's a breakdown of how the LW MSM is brainwashing the democrats:

                          Thing of it is Jon Steward and Stephen Colbert are not about comedy, but politics, disguised as comedy.

                            By your account they didn't name the right wing groups either. So?
