Reporter Said She ‘Got Caught Up in a Couple Brawls’ at Mosque Protest, but the Video Tells a Different Story

"Don’t bring that B.S.!"

They weren't fistfights.

They didn't even technically appear to be "fighting words."

But one reporter still called what happened a "brawl."

At the "free speech" protest held at a Phoenix mosque Friday evening, armed protesters shouted anti-Islamic messages as counter-protesters shouted back, and on the scene, a KNXV-TV reporter claimed she "got caught up in a couple brawls" during the rally.

But the clips she played don't support her claim.

Watch the segment below:

In the clips, some protesters yell that Islam teaches violence, while a counter protester yells, "Read a history book! Have you heard of people being killed in the name of Christianity? Don’t bring that B.S.!"

But "brawls" are nowhere to be seen in the clips.

Despite the heated arguments and presence of firearms, Phoenix police told TheBlaze that there were no arrests or injuries reported at the rally.
