FOX News crew mobbed at anti-war protest

A FOX News reporter and cameraman were mobbed Sunday morning at an anti-war march on the west steps of the Capitol in Denver.

The FOX reporter tried to interview former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill but was swarmed by a pack of protesters screaming obscenities and insults.

As gathered media pounced the scene protesters starting chanting and yelling at the news crew to stop promoting Republican propaganda. The reporter and cameraman stood their ground despite being surrounded by the angry mob and finished an interview with a demonstrator. The reporter never did get to talk with Churchill.

The anti-war rally was organized by the group Recreate 68 which offered free protester training on Saturday for people who have traveled from around the country to demonstrate at the Democratic National Convention.

Thousands of protesters and many demonstrations are expected throughout the week.
