I was able to contact both sprayers and the sign-holder and obtain their side of the story. The sign-holder was willing to be interviewed and tell his side of the story, but NBC was not interested in correcting their story false story. The reporter for NBC was Steven Luke. My belief is that NBC management and this reporter in general were biased and just did not care about reporting the truth in this matter.
See the full NBC report and video that shows what really happened in the clip below. I was also threatened with a rock by the two attackers as you see in the clip. In California this is assault.
Other media and bloggers also portrayed a false version of the event and slandered the two people who sprayed the attackers. Among them were Gawker, Occupy Democrats and even the conservative blog “Red State,” whose writers have gone rabidly anti-Trump and seem quite willing to slander his followers.
