No national news coverage on this from any legacy media outlets. Imagine if this happened to a Democrat supporter? The media being biased and choosing what to highlight is very real.

Just to be clear, Iím not a Trump supporter Iíve never voted Republican in my life. I just know hypocrisy and selective journalism when I see it.

It would be wrong for a store clerk to assault anyone..that is not a robber

This seems like more of an unbalanced mental person than a political issue right? Also I didn't watch the whole thing, but if this is just yelling and cursing does this really rise to the levels of viscous beatings and killings that happen every day? I am kind of curious why this would be a national news story? Man yells at customer and loses it, gets fired? That is a big story?

Well, that was disturbing.
 
I think (hope) we all know that the vast majority of anti-Trump store clerks actually politely serve Trump supporters every day... and the converse is true as well.  You may be correct (probably are) that had it been an unhinged Trump-supporter in the role of the store clerk the video would have received more play in the media, which of course would be wrong.   But the bottom  line for me is that Iíd rather not see something like this re-played at all on either side of  the political news spectrum. I think the clip has no relevance to politics, only to the mental health of an obscure store clerk ó who Iíd be concerned about regardless of his political perspective.

Youíre definitely not wrong that it isnít newsworthy, but JSD is completely correct when he says that it would be plastered all over the news if a Dem supporter was the victim

We all know people that upset about Pres. Trump, they are out there, most people I know would not act on it though.

If this didn't make Fox News why would left leaning news outlets pick it up nationally. Heck, I am not sure this is even something that a local news outlets would pick up. Just looks like something you see go viral on social media. Not something that is newsworthy.

I mean, I am guessing that some Obama supporters didn't get served in some very southern very conservative areas in the country after he was elected. Never remember anything like that hit the national news.

Sorry, if he was a Dem and wasn't getting service I doubt it makes news. It's just not newsworthy.

What happened before he started recording?  That's the thing with these videos, no idea what was or was not said before the filming started.  And the customer ignored the request to stop recording.  You don't just have a right to record whenever you want.  Sure the clerk went a bit over the top in the video, but when asked to leave he was officially trespassing.

If you only read one side of the news, you won't get all sides.
