As Twitchy reported Friday, a reporter from News 12 Long Island was confronted by some protesters at a coronavirus lockdown protest and though he kept his reporting objective, he had to relay that the level of anger directed at him by protesters was alarming:

Jim Acosta is right: It’s a dangerous time to tell the truth in America.
