Huffington Post’s hate and extremism reporter lashed out at Vox on Monday because the media outlet dared to report on violence committed by antifa over the weekend.

Vox published an article about the planned Unite the Right rallies this past weekend that indicted antifa for engaging in violence while claiming to be against fascism.

“This weekend in Charlottesville and DC, though, it wasn’t neo-Nazis and white supremacists the antifa attacked,” the author explained. “It was police who were there to help keep the peace among all the demonstrators and journalists who were there to cover the events.”

Christopher Mathias, a HuffPo reporter who claims to cover “hate and extremism,” decried the article on Twitter.

“This is a bad article & is a good example of how not to cover white supremacy,” Mathias wrote.

Mathias did not explain what was wrong with the article.
