Today's "media" on yesterday's "riot"

From Newsweek - talk about a howler:

Trump's 'Waning Influence' Shown in 'Very Small Crowd Size' at 'Justice for J6' Rally: Ted Lieu
As a sparse crowd gathered in Washington D.C., to support the January 6 Capitol rioters on Saturday, Representative Ted Lieu said the "Justice for J6" rally's poor attendance shows that former President Donald Trump's influence on the Republican Party is finally waning.

"The very small crowd size at the #JusticeforJ6 traitorous rally shows the waning influence of the former President," the California Democrat tweeted.

The "Justice for J6" rally concluded Saturday afternoon without any known major instances of violence. Due to concerns of such possible threats, authorities ensured a hefty police presence at the rally, which was attended by 400 to 450 protesters in support of those who were charged in connection with the Capitol riot earlier this year, according to Capitol Police.

Ted Lieu represents California's 33rd District (the wealthy part of Los Angeles). No mention of nation of origin but his official biography states:

Looking for a better life and opportunity, Ted and his family immigrated to the United States when he was three years old. 

Infogalactic has him born in Taiwan.

Continuing from the Newsweek article:

One man allegedly wielding a handgun was detained at the rally around 1:30 p.m. and charged with unlawful activities, reported Capitol Police.

"At this time, it is not clear why the man was at the demonstration," authorities said.

Actually, it was very clear - the man was an undercover agent.  He was stopped, he presented his badge and was released.  He was not charged with anything.

800+ comments - some fun reading. 

The author was Senior News Editor Christina Zhao.  The link goes to her other stories - she writes with a certain bias to say the least. She is educated in England (read the Law) and practiced law in New Zealand.  No word as to country of origin.  Odd that two Chinese names be involved in an article so slanted against conservatism and American Greatness. Christina should have picked up a phone and done a little research first - find out what actually happened.

Looking back, I think that this bias is wonderful.  Keeps them in the dark until the shit does hit the fan.
They will be caught unawares and helpless. Easy pickins...
