TV networks are boosting security for reporters at President Trump‘s campaign-style rallies in light of his escalating rhetoric against the press, according to Politico.

Though most networks would not respond to Politico’s questions about security at rallies, Politico examined social media posts from multiple broadcast reporters discussing their expanded security details.

The article goes on to state the following:

ABC’s Tara Palmeri, a White House correspondent, wrote an article about what it was like to cover Trump rallies “for the first time with a bodyguard.” ‘

“Here’s my dispatch on what it was like to cover Trump rallies for the first time with a bodyguard,” Palmeri tweeted. “I found that the crowds were riled up in mass, but very friendly one-on-one.”

Politico also noted a recent Instagram from NBC’s Geoff Bennet, who posted a photo of himself with NBC’s security detail.

“We need security guards when covering rallies hosted by the President of the United States,” Bennett noted in the caption, according to Politico. “Let that sink in.”

The New York Times and The Washington Post declined to offer specifics, but representatives from both outlets said they are reassessing and expanding safety measures for their reporters.

    They’re trying to make it look like we’re out of control but, we know they are.

    Why even let the fake news media in. Let the alternate news cover the rallies. We only see them on those sights anyway!

    They brought this on themselves. If they were truthful and not one sided to the left and stopped degrading President Trump at every opportunity and instead reporting the news and all the good the President Trump has done since taking office they would not feel the need for body guards. We the people are fed up with all the hatred and lies they spread towards our President and until they stop this abuse we will continue to show our opposition towards them. STOP the propaganda and report the NEWS !!!
