Faux News covers the DNC

"Well, I guess they don't believe in freedom of speech," concludes intrepid Faux News teevee journalist Griff Jenkins after wading into and attempting to disrupt a "marching thing" in Denver.

"Come here! What's your name?" (YouTube, 3:11)

Sounds to me like they were speaking pretty freely.

I think they believe pretty strongly in freedom of speech, sans censorship even. That's pretty hilarious.

I don't know how rowdy this is going to be, but let me get in there and see if I can make it a little bit rowdier. Work that crowd, Griff!

I think he lost them when he described them as "that marching thing."

Wasn't it the Faux News that censored their speech? Doesn't Faux News believe in free speech?

Oh, that is what must be 'fairly unbalanced' news.

No, "free speech" means "talk to me so I can make fun of you, and so the fair-and-balanced main desk talking head can use this situation to drum up some drama around here".

This man-on-the-street was trying very, very hard to play it straight, but it all reminded me of comedy. He was as serious as someone on any Comedy Central faux reality show. Hey, there's that word again!
