'The Daily Show' Intimidates and Then Runs

Lee Stranahan reporting for Breitbart sets the scene:

Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak sent The Daily Show running for cover, armed only with his cell phone camera, outside a “Gays for Trump” party hosted by Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos near the Republican National Convention early Wednesday.

A crew from The Daily Show — which plunged in the ratings after Trevor Noah took over as host— set up outside the event and approached people as they left the party, asking them for interviews.

 At 12:30 a.m., Pollak was leaving the party when The Daily Show approached. “I was on the phone anyway,” Pollak recalled, “so I ignored them, but then I saw them pulling someone aside, so I stopped to watch.” The Breitbart senior editor-at-large ended his call, and turned on his video camera.

The Daily Show didn’t like that. Their attempt to stop Pollak wasn’t funny, and included physical intimidation and a blatant disregard for the First Amendment...The episode is merely the latest example of the American Left’s newest fetish for destroying free speech.


  1. Amazing. They show themselves as the little cowards they are. When The Daily Show interviewed Peter Schiff about his views on the minimum wage, they did exactly what the narrator accused them of doing: cutting and pasting footage to make Peter look like a fool. The producers also explicitly forbid Peter to bring in his own camera or even a recording device.

    The moral of the story is that you never, ever speak with someone in the Media, because Media critters are part of the Establishment.

  2. Gutless hypocritical leftard wankers. I would have been a lot more aggressive and disruptive then Pollak was since these chickenshits deserve nothing less.

  3. I'm very impressed with the videographer's calm. He stood his ground without getting agitated. That gives this video more punch than if he'd been "aggressive and disruptive", as one commenter suggests.
