NYC Protestors Take it to Fox News Over Eric Garner Chokehold Death: ‘F-ck Fox News’

Angry protestors responding to non-indictment in Eric Garner case chant obscenities outside Fox News headquarters in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Furious protestors responding to a New York grand jury decision not to indict police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner marched toward Fox News headquarters in New York City and Washington, D.C. Wednesday.

“F*ck Fox News” protestors railed, targeting the news channel for what they perceived to be biased coverage.

Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell caught the chant outside Fox News’ main headquarters in New York.

Throughout Wednesday, multiple Fox News personalities agreed with the protestors.

“Upon seeing the video and hearing Garner say he couldn’t breathe, it’s extremely troubling,” Bill O’Reilly said. “Eric Garner was obese, he had asthma, and was in no condition to absorb what befell him…he did not deserve what happened to him.”

“They were arresting him over loose cigarettes–it was a slap on the wrist kind of crime for which he effectively received the death penalty,” Megyn Kelly said.  “And he was saying 11 times, ‘I can’t breathe.'”

“My level of anger here over this stupidity; we have limited resources, we have crack dealers, we have heroine dealers, we have rapists, and we have cops–I don’t blame them–they’re told, they have to go out and arrest people…over a friggin cigarette, Geraldo [Rivera], that is beyond stupid to me,” Sean Hannity said.

“My thoughts are that this ought to have been an indictment and ought to have been an indictment for some form of manslaughter,” Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said.

Protestors also railed against CNN:

 

Late Wednesday night, Attorney General Eric Holder announced a federal investigation into the Eric Garner case.
