Media and the alt right

Okay the news media has had on people who worked for bannon's site. And told them about some of the stuff from the site. They heard that some of the graphics he has tweeted have come from alt right sites. But listening to them today it sounds like they never even had the curiosity to check what alt right is. What is their problem? They seem to ignore somethings till someone else does their work for them and puts it on a 3 grade level reader level teleprompter. You look at his crowds and can see some of the alt rights in action. The ones who attack protestors the hang her group, etc. But none of them put 2 and 2 together. Maybe the sledge hammer Hillary swung today will at least get them to take a couple minutes of their time to look at what alt right is.

Some of the media asked if she meant was all of his supporters were alt right. I didn't see her speech but hope she made sure she directed it toward dipshit donnie only. The ones who have attacked people full batshit crazy. The ones up in the face and hurling threats maybe 90% batshit crazy, etc. Not all the people in the crowd were full batshit crazies.
