New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced late Tuesday that he had requested that local TV outlets "pull back low-flying helicopters" to avoid "inadvertently heightening tensions" as demonstrations broke out across the city following the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.
MSNBC political contributor Jason Johnson said he was "not happy" with the verdict in the Derek Chauvin case on Tuesday after the jury found the former police officer guilty on all three charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, calling it a "cultural make-up call."
The official ruling on the cause of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick's death debunks the media narrative upon which former President Donald Trump's second impeachment was largely predicated, Washington Times opinion editor and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt told "America Reports" Tuesday.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Monday that when House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., requested anti-police protesters get "more confrontational" if a jury chooses not to convict former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, then she "finds value in violence."
"Where’s the unity?" Fox Business host Larry Kudlow asked "America Reports" co-anchor Sandra Smith Monday during a discussion of why Democrats have failed to condemn Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for "inciting violence" after calling for Minnesota protesters to "get more confrontational" if Derek Chauvin is acquitted.
