Best Shutdown: Kwame Rose

During the uprising, Baltimore residents had absolutely zero chill when it came to telling the crowds of national media that rolled into town exactly what they thought of them and their coverage. But the best example of a Baltimore resident shutting down a national-media fool was Kwame Rose going in on Fox News' Geraldo Rivera after the TV personality shut his cameras off. “I want you and Fox News to get out of Baltimore City, because you're not here reporting about the boarded-up homes and the homeless people under MLK,” Rose lectured him in a video that racked up more than a million views on YouTube. “You're not reporting about the poverty levels up and down North Avenue.” Geraldo tried to walk away from him, but Rose kept going in on him and Fox News' reporting in a major mic-dropping way.
