A protester wearing a Guy Fawkes mask smashed a Fox News camera during a live broadcast Monday night from Ferguson, Mo.

Fox News’ Steve Harrigan was describing the unrest following a grand jury’s decision not to charge white police Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown. The protester entered the frame of the live shot and yelled “Fuck you, and fuck Fox News.” The camera then titled towards the ground and the live shot was lost.

Later on, Harrigan told Fox’s Shepard Smith that he thought protesters were angry that his crew was filming looting. He said none of the crew was injured.

“The only casualty was the camera,” he joked.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
