The post is unverified at this time but considering the media is now jumping all over any random facebook/twitter posts to prove 'hate crimes' perhaps this might get some coverage as well.

ffs people, how much lower are we going to sink with "journalism"?

An infowars ( which is about on par with the National Enquirer but at least the Enquirer doesn't actually believe the shit it writes ) article about an unverified screenshot of a Facebook post with the names blurred being reported as news because the author thinks its a possibility?

There are FAR more "journalism" outlets on the left such as ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, that were proven to be in bed with the DNC in the leaked emails.

Edit: CNN even gave the debate questions to Killary, ffs.

And you still trust CNN, MSNBC, ABC and so on after the election showed just how they are corrupt, biased liars?

None of that has anything to do with the veracity of Infowars as a source and projecting your partisan fever dream on me doesn't up Infowars credibility in any way.

We're talking about a "news outlet" that thinks the moon landings were fake and Sandy Hook was a hoax.

http://www.tmn.today/2016/11/young-father-dies-after-anti-trump-protestors-block-his-ambulance/
the article notes that it's not verified, but it's very possible to be true, given the number of protests / people blocking roads.
believe it or not, ambulance actually need to use the highway / streets too!
a previous event where an ambulance got blocked off, as shown in the article:
https://twitter.com/TweetBrettMac/status/708525579600064512/video/1

of course, because it's a news that points Trump protesters in a negative light, it's not even remotely reported by the left-wing media
(the same media which refused to cover wikileaks, but that's another story). note that if it was the other way around, and Hillary protesters
were blocking traffic, this would be all over the news. it's a sad state of affairs where there's much double-standard, and people don't even realize their strong bias. thanks CNN, WP, etc for this.

inb4 the almost guaranteed apologetic response "but Trump supporters did it too (so it's ok that it happened)"

Right, but see both articles are headlined with:

"REPORT: ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTERS BLOCK AMBULANCE; FATHER OF 4-YEAR-OLD GIRL DIES"

"Young Father Dies After Anti-Trump Protestors Block His Ambulance"

Then go on to treat it as fact before admitting further down in the article it hasn't been verified in any way. So ultimately, you're left with a nothing but a screenshot of an unverified Facebook post being used by a virulently anti-left conspiracy website to negatively paint the Other Team(tm).

See the problem? -.-

please explain how an ambulance can not be blocked as a result of protesters blocking the traffic.

Should they have hidden the fact that it was a Facebook post to satisfy your narrative?

Many major news sites also explored those conspiracy theories. Just because they present the stories doesn't meant they agree with them. At least they don't fake documents like Dan Rather of CBS, and lie about countless personal experiences like Brian Williams (NBC I think). Many people know Infowars has some garbage stories for the clicks just like every other site, that does not automatically discredit every article produced. Even the National Enquirer has legit stories now and then. These days after proof of fraud and collusion by most of the major news sites, It's more important than ever to research stories on your own a bit.

As for this story, I didn't read it, but blocking any major roadway can cause delays for people seeking emergency treatment. It's plausible.
After all it was an excuse used against Gov Crispy Cream's aids when they shut down the GWB, even though emergency vehicles rarely cross the bridge since it separates states and jurisdictions.
