Fox News Contributor Repeatedly Punched By Michigan Pro-Union Protestors Tearing Down AFP Tent

(ETA at around 7pm PT: I finally found the video. Watch it for yourself at the V&M section and comment.)
New video has surfaced showing Fox News contributor Steven Crowder being repeatedly punched while trying to stop Michigan pro-union protestors from tearing down a conservative tent outside the state’s capitol.
Earlier this afternoon, we reported that pro-union protestors in Michigan tore down an Americans for Prosperity tent while rallying against the state’s new right-to-work law.
Crowder was apparently on the scene to conduct man-on-the-street interviews, when things seemed to have gotten quite tense.
One protester cursed at him as he attempted to ask a question; another grabbed Crowder and punched him in the head a few times. Later on, as a tent was being torn down, Crowder was hit again.
It is unclear, however, whether the violence against Crowder resulted from something we don’t see on-camera, or what sort of exchange occurred immediately before the punching.

Mediaite is a more reliable source than the right wing blogs like The Blaze, twitchy, gateway pundit, etc. that are hyping up this story. Providing in case you don't want to give traffic to the enemy. Sucks how stories like this one distract from the cause.
There are several Vids of what went down. Take your pick.
And of course, the Cub Reporter...

13. Several points
For once reporter partially generated that. Once he was told to "get the fuck off my face," that is when you back away. Period. That means you get the hell out and not become part of the story.
Second, this helps nobody
Third...there are hard editing points here, so we really do not have the full story.
Fourth, I know AFP are scum, I know people are pissed...this helps nobody.

You, once again, have no clue what you are talking about.
"For once reporter partially generated that. Once he was told to "get the fuck off my face," that is when you back away. Period. That means you get the hell out and not become part of the story."
REAL reporters, something you would not know about, will do just about anything to get a story. Good ones are threatened ALL the time, but they don't back down. The ones who win pulitzers are the ones who DON'T back away when threatened.
People who pretend to be reporters, on the other hand, should back away. Period.
We don't know if this guy was a reporter or not, but you spreading your usual misinformation under the guise of "knowing it all" is nauseating.
Looked like a LOT of angry union thugs to me...
