#EdSchultz blog: Fox News Stirs Violence in Michigan
Fox News Contributor Steven Crowder went to the right-to-work protests outside the Capitol in Michigan today looking for trouble, and succeeded in finding it. We know Governor Scott Walker considered putting troublemakers in the crowd during the collective bargaining fight in Wisconsin, and now Fox News appears to be doing the dirty work for Governor Rick Snyder in Michigan.
In an attempt to make the pro-union workers in Michigan look like violent thugs, Crowder put himself in the midst of a passionate crowd and made a nuisance of himself, shouting provacative questions at workers whose livelihoods are on the line, until he finally got clocked.
Of course, Crowder did not have the courtesy to release an unedited recording of his confrontation, so we don't know how the worker, who appeared to be getting up off the ground, came to be provoked into punching Crowder's smug face. Near the end of the video, Crowder raises his hands and smirks at the camera, seemingly pleased with himself. Watch it.
