WATCH: Live Feed From Inside The Standoff At Oregon Wildlife Refuge

David Fry, the defacto tech man at the Oregon wildlife refuge standoff, has posted a live video feed to record the events on the ground in Oregon.

Fry, a self-proclaimed video gamer who had posted a slew of anti-semitic comments on social media, drove from Ohio weeks ago to check out the standoff. He has has recorded several videos for the refuge and even created a website to organize the militiamen’s updates and calls for supplies.

Here is the live feed from inside the standoff via Fry’s YouTube channel “defendyourbase.”

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.
