You Can't Trust "Eyewitness" Reporters - Even from Fox

Montana Assault Witness Changes Story, Says No Neck Grab

Reporter says firsthand account misstated key aspect of Gianforte incident

by Edmund Kozak | Updated 25 May 2017

A reporter who was a firsthand witness to an incident late Wednesday involving Montana GOP candidate Greg Gianforte and a reporter [Alicia Acuna from Fox] for the Guardian now admits she may have misstated some details of her initial story.
Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs claimed Gianforte, locked in a hotly contested special election for Congress, body-slammed him and broke his glasses at a campaign event Wednesday. Local authorities have brought misdemeanor assault charges against Gianforte.
“You know, and I’m the one who said that … I saw both his hands go up … I guess it could’ve been on his clothes, I don’t know.”
