Just days after New Jersey Rep Mike Sherrill claimed that she witnessed lawmakers doing “reconnaissance” tours just a day before the Capitol riots, a right-wing media outlet was slammed for showing viewers the details of all security measures that have been taken to ensure that President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration will be a smooth and uneventful one.
A series of videos were posted by Right Side Broadcasting that showed the specific roads blocked off in Washington, DC, and what security is at precise areas in the city. Photos of fences and trucks blocking roads in and around the venue of the event have been posted by multiple news outlets anyway, giving people a pretty good idea of the increased security measures.
However, Right Side Broadcasting reporter Brian Glenn felt the need to walk through the streets, pointing out specific roads, corners, and directions in multiple videos. “We’re going to take you on a journey around the city here of what exactly is going on here, as is very much a different scene here in Washington, D.C.,” says Glenn in the video.
“Right Side Broadcasting News, a Trump supporting independent network with 1.39m YouTube subscribers, filmed an interesting livestream segment this evening doing a walkthrough of DC security measures for their audience. Over 254k people have watched the 36-minute video as of this tweet, in which Right Side Broadcasting Network anchor Brian Glenn shows his audience in detail where security checkpoints are, what they look like, and how to maneuver around locked down Washington DC,” a journalist for The Intercept captioned the video of Glenn’s pre-inaugural coverage. Legal analyst Marcy Wheeler characterized it as “Pro Trump media doing reconnaissance of the Inauguration security” on Twitter.
