Antifa violence descended on the nation's capital Saturday, one week after journalist Andy Ngo was brutally assaulted by violent Antifa protesters in Portland last week.
Given Antifa's reputation for violence, far-left protesters distributed press "guidelines" to members of the media ahead of Saturday's protests, which, among other things, instructed journalists to avoid "publishing any potentially incriminating photos or video footage" because they "can be used as evidence in court."
Essentially, Antifa wants the media to cover up their violence to avoid prosecution.
These are the rules for members of the press in order to go inside the #AllOutDC rally, which is the antifa side.

Additionally, Antifa organizers restricted media from entering certain protest areas, and demanded media members obtain explicit consent from protesters before photographing or videoing.
