Reporting the News in Obama’s America

Guess what happens at the end of this clip:

Hint: she’s in Oakland, one of the most liberal cities in America.

A KPIX news cameraman was punched and robbed during a live broadcast outside an Oakland high school, the latest in a spate of holdups targeting the media, police said Thursday.

Reporter Anne Makovec and cameraman Gregg Welk were on the air shortly after noon Wednesday outside Oakland Technical High School near the corner of 42nd Street and Broadway. They were at the school to do a story on the passage of Proposition 30, the tax measure preventing deep cuts to education.

As Makovec was finishing her report, police said, five men rushed up and grabbed a $6,000 camera from the tripod. Viewers saw the live picture being jarred and turned sideways for about two seconds.

One of the assailants punched Welk in the mouth before the group fled in a Mercedes-Benz, which apparently was accompanied by a Lexus, police said.

At least thieves are living well during our self-imposed twilight.

On a tip from Wiggins.

    I hope they both were Obama voters and the cameraman has to get teeth fixed under ObamaKare!

    BLEEDING-HEART REGRESSIVE: “But the Mercedes and the Lex were probably STOLEN! Wait, that doesn’t help my argument, does it?”

  3. Sam Adams says:

    More folks simply following Obama’s lead and redistributing wealth. After all, it is legal when the government does it…

  4. Sam Adams says:

    Rational people have long known to get out of the liberal hell hole that is California.

  5. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    To be fair, this is the only way these Obama zombies know to thank the media propagandists for their stellar performance.
    In fact, this act sums up all their talents in a nutshell.
    And in a small bit of irony, it’s the focus of this story, those public schools and their unions that can be thanked for this.
    Have I gone full circle yet ?

  6. Drury says:

    I’d bet $10,000 the perps are 0bama’s sons….and I haven’t read the details of the story yet.

  7. Buffalobob says:

    But it’s CBS, do these obama thugs have no sense of loyalty?

    The snake is eating its tail.

    What incentive do conservatives have for living in California? High paying jobs? Is it really worth it when the cost of living is so high and tax payers will now be forced to fund even sex change surgeries? Nice weather can be found in other southern conservative states. If I lived in California, I would be saving every single penny to get out of there as soon as possible. Let the people who overwhelmingly swing that state to the left, deal with their choices.

    As we all know, something smells rotten – fishy – with the election returns.

    Obama was drawing lackadaisical crowds. Romney was filling stadiums.

    Even the MSM was touting conservative energy and liberal blah.

    Now we find, that Obama didn’t win a single state with voter ID laws.

    Plus Obama won the states with the highest unemployment – why vote for Romney when you have EBT, section 8, cell phones, disability, et al, and more promises in store?

    Philadelphia and Cleveland precincts, among many, report close to 100% returns for Obama, and many were manned by DNC and Obama supporters.

    Report after report stated voter machines pulled for Romney came up Obama.

    I heard in some cases a machine’s vote could be changed remotely.

    And up and down the Eastern states from NY to Florida, precinct numbers are showing 120%, 140%, etc – more votes than voters – in final tallies.

    On twitter, tweets were obsessively reminding us just how many times individual voters were voting.

    And prior to the election, I read that votes were actually being processed by a company in Spain which was owned by Soros……anyone know if there’s any truth to that?

    It’s too late to cry conspiracy, but I find it extremely hard to believe that Romney came close to losing the election.

    Bittersweet: On one hand, there are far more of us standing together than we originally thought; on the other hand, voter fraud is even worse than one can imagine.

  11. IslandLifer says:

    Yes Alpha there is truth in all of that, including the votes being counted in Spain. I can no longer put my faith in a system so corrupt that those in charge of it are simply career criminals. My faith lies only in God, family, and friends. Preparation is necessary. Guns and ammo are flying off the shelves!

  12. That is frigging hilarious.

    Even better, the liberal reporter is probably wondering what she did wrong to make this happen.

  13. Max & Eric says:

    Well she’s a republican now, usually that’s all it takes

  14. Laurie says:

    I’m sure they’ve already found a way to blame this on Bush.

    Fun fact: Clint Eastwood graduated from Oakland Technical High School. It was considered a fine school in his day. Now it is a crumbling shithole of a holding pen. Pardon my French.

    I lived in the neighborhood while I attended college. At lunchtime large groups of obese, angry, junk food riddled teenagers (who looked like Obama’s aborted sons and daughters) would claim the nearby streets as their own, terrorizing anyone who happened to cross their waddling paths. I am a petite white woman but I am afraid of nothing and have yet to let a bully get the better of me. I never had to use my fists, but I did frequently use my mouth and my beyond ebonics eloquence to both assault and subdue a number of the finer examples of the herd.

    There used to be a branch of Social Services right next to Tech on Broadway and 45th. Drop-outs, teen moms, recent graduates who could barely read their own names, all they had to do was waddle across one small street to get sucked into yet another generation of societal leeching.

    At the end of the school day, the curb along Broadway would be lined with the finest in tricked out pimp mobiles, each stereo system blaring a different yet equally offensive mind numbing noise that could not be called music by anyone with a triple digit IQ. The Queens of the student body would stroll back and forth playing one over dressed and sweaty mac daddy against another before finally deciding which one would deliver her to the understated elegance of her section 8 abode.

    Okay, enough with the memories, it’s time to go clean some guns. My dear husband and I spent our date night at the range. He’s teaching me how to double tap. I do so love that man. 🙂

  16. […] Moonbattery brings us the wonderful state of live news in Liberal World and…hey, bring my camera back, you thief! […]

    Alphamail: I’ve also been considering every single point you brought up. In 2010, people couldn’t wait to get out there and vote the bums out and they did. RINOs and Dems dropped like flies around the nation and it was an historic sweep. Then the rallies, town hall events, Tea Parties, etc. were further proof of the momentum and it showed no sign of slowing down at all. I mean, look what happened with the Chik-Fil-A situation and the turnout and enthusiasm that one simple issue generated mere months before a national election. And we’re supposed to believe that for some mystical, unexplainable reason in the last few days leading up to our big chance…it simply fizzled?!?

    Sorry, Jack…I’m not buying it at all and no, it’s not too late to look at conspiracy and fraud. The Spanish company you mentioned is called SCYTL. The situation you mentioned has been “debunked”, but again, I’m still pretty leery of it all. Check out Google Trends latest result for ‘SCYTL’:

    Would anybody really put it past the vast, well-connected, terrified powerful political machine comprised of both parties to rig something in their favor after they’d seen what a truly energized group of producers is capable of?

    And well, well, well.

    Negroids again I bet.

  19. Spider says:

    These criminals are obviously a lot smarter than the American sheeple. At least they know who the true enemy is, and attacked it. You ain’t seen nothin yet!

  20. Clingtomyguns says:

    The Obama sons gots their reparations and entitlements from the white hoe, then dashed away in their Obama cars yucking it up … now how does that feel white liberal media?

  21. Robert Simon says:

    This country makes me weep. I’m 67 yrs. and have seen this country free fall into the horrible state which it exists. I look at all our major cities and can see very clearly how they became that way. Blacks are just plain destructive beings. I’m sickened by the thought of them. They could Fu@k-up a junkyard.

  22. TaterSalad says:

    Taxes in California should be raised to the 75% rate, just like France. Why only go half way there California? If you want to be progressive and socialistic….What are you afraid of? Raise them taxes !

  23. Joe Mama says:

    Sounds like the standard modus operandi of the North American Pavemenmt Ape (Africani Criminalum Unemployus).

  24. Wilberforce says:

    Why, look at all the new racist moby trolls. Funny how they show up the second your’re onto something. Huh…

  25. bluffcreek1967 says:

    Oh you’re all being far too tough on the poor Negro ‘yuffs.’ They were just in need of an immediate video camera because they had a school project on the wonders of diversity that was soon due! It was an extra credit assignment that they needed to hurriedly finish so they could be at work on time later that day! After all, such niceties as “May I borrow your vide camera?” are unnecessary when there’s important school work to be done! Geez, you people talk like the people of Oakland are savages!?

    WTF did you expect?

    Of course, the leftist media will fail to mention the race of the youfs. Diversity is a lovely thing. Pick up a copy of “White Girl Bleed a Lot.”
