Long Island 12 News reporter Kevin Vesey recorded this hostile encounter walking through a crowd at an anti-quarantine protest in Suffolk County this week. “You stopped airing the Trump briefings and you keep airing the Cuomo briefings — go home, you’re fake news. Go home,” one woman told him. “We all know it, you are fake news.” “You are the enemy of the people,” a man chimed in as he walked by. “You’re disgusting. You are the virus,” someone else added. “You used to be a good channel at one time, I don’t know what happened to you,” said another man. “Fake news coming through! Fake news coming through! Fake news coming through!” bellowed another, holding his middle finger high. “You guys are f*cking fake news. Put me on TV.” Further on a crowd began to chant: “Fake news is not essential!”
