VICE: So, So Angry: Exhausted Reporters Who Survived The Capitol Siege Are Still Struggling

In Joe Biden’s America, a whole generation of “journalists” are exhausted and sobbing and traumatized by the emotional labor of covering the “far right” and the Capitol Siege.

VICE:

“John Bresnahan spent January 6 watching a pro-Trump insurrection ransack the building he’s worked in for decades. 

The congressional reporting veteran was in the House gallery when a colleague texted him that the Capitol’s exterior security fence had been overrun. As soon as he stepped into the hallway, he heard the roar of the crowd as they warred with police officers trying to protect the Capitol’s perimeter. …

Reporters have discussed their personal experiences in the days immediately following the Capitol insurrection. But few have publicly talked about the lasting effects in the months since—the toll that day took on them, the difficulty some have faced in returning to a site where they experienced trauma, and what it’s been like covering a Congress still deeply divided on the events of that day.  …

And the emotional scars are still there. Six months after their office was attacked, the Capitol Hill press corps is grappling with how to cover the insurrection’s fallout, as well as its impact on them personally and professionally.

Some reporters who were there won’t go back into the building. A number have sought therapy to deal with the trauma. One longtime Capitol Hill reporter opted for early retirement shortly after living through the riot. Many still aren’t sleeping well. …”

    • It’s what they do in court too. The next stage is claiming their hemorrhoids are caused by the PTSD so they can claim medical damages. Oy vey! Gotta love those Jews!

      • So the 1/6’ers that survive criminal prosecution can expect a lifetime of civil suits for giving Jewish reporters hemorrhoids.

    • The entire articles are filled with loaded language, riot, deadly etc.

      What journalists ? Just a bunch of hack propagandists.

    • “opted for early retirement shortly after living through the riot. Many still aren’t sleeping well. …”

      Ashli babbitt won’t, she is dead.
      Where are the articles memorializing her?

  1. They seemed to bounce back really quick from a summer of having piss bricks and molotovs tossed at them as entire cities burned around them. Weird how that works

  2. Is there any group of people more narcissistic than system journalists? It’s hard to think of any.

  3. And the poor little jouno-flakes are still traumatized by the “deadly” January riot. The only thing deadly about it was the regime’s murder of Ashley Babbit. I’m sure that doesn’t trouble them in the least. Deplorable lives don’t matter.

  4. These fake-ass drama queen scum would be hilarious if they weren’t shaping the minds of idiots for their kike/billionaire masters.

  5. The fact that Trump hasn’t gone to jail for that proves he really is one of the elite at the end of the day. The Jewish media just pretends to hate him.

  6. It’s a profession they chose to pursue. They could always switch.
    I can’t imagine it being any worse than covering the post Floyd riots. I mean………no businesses or homes were burned down. No human rights were violated or deaths recorded, except on the part of the siegers.
    Very touching that they’re traumatized……….over a bit of drama inside a government building….
    Boo fucking hoo!
