There are very few times when the leftist mainstream media actually does the right thing. But when they do decide to take the moral high ground, we need to give them credit when and where it's due.

CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday condemned Antifa's attacks on journalist Andy Ngo.

"This is a protest that turned violent against a member of the media in Portland, Oregon this weekend. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo was out there covering rival protests on Saturday, Antifa on one side, right-wing figures on the other side but as demonstrations clashed, protestors – it appears to be Antifa protestors – then attacked Ngo. He's been out there in the past. He's been covering protests in Portland for quite some time," Stelter explained. 

"His critics say he's there to cause trouble but that's unacceptable. The idea that he would be attacked and he would be bloodied in that way...unacceptable. Period," Stelter said. "And it's important we make that clear. Even left-wing critics who don't like him."

Stelter's condemnation comes after lefties have come after Ngo for supposedly "provoking" Antifa protestors. These are just some of the things other so-called journalists are saying.

"Provoking" Antifa? Seriously? Since when is recording and reporting what a group is doing "provoking" them?

When people associated with this group repeatedly attack others at "rallies" and "protests" across the country, it's pretty fair to label an entire movement as violent.

Regardless of what you think of a person, their political beliefs or their "legitimacy" as a journalist, no one deserves to be beaten to pulp. No one.

Stelter did the right thing by condemning what happened.
