The corporate media lied that the riots across America during the summer of 2020 essentially were “fiery, but mostly peaceful.” Americans, however, watched in horror as places such as Portland, Seattle, and Kenosha, Wisconsin, burned while radical leftists swarmed the streets.

Through it all, though, one journalist braved the mobs.

Townhall’s Julio Rosas spent much of 2020 moving around the country, capturing footage of rioters as they looted stores, fought police, and, of course, burned buildings.

Rosas is the author of the new book “Fiery (But Mostly Peaceful): The 2020 Riots and the Gaslighting of America.”

Rosas joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his book and reveal the truth that the media won’t tell you about the riots. We also cover these stories:

  • The Labor Department reports that inflation dipped to 8.3% from 8.5% in March, as measured by the the consumer price index, but that Americans likely will continue to see high inflation.
  • Pro-abortion activists make their way to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home in San Francisco, accusing Democrats of being “complicit” in the likely repeal of Roe v. Wade.
  • Hong Kong’s national security police arrest Cardinal Joseph Zen and several others on charges of colluding with foreign forces to undermine China’s national security.
  • New data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that over 107,000 Americans died last year of opioid overdoses, a record high.
