Incredibly biased mainstream media coverage

We haven't found much mainstream media coverage of the rally. We did, however, come across this 9 News story and video: 'Stand with ICE' rally turns into screaming match outside detention facility, 9 News, September 2, 2019:

Supporters of President Trump gathered outside the ICE detention facility in Aurora for a "Stand with ICE" rally Monday. It was planned after protestors took down an American flag at the facility back in July.

Note that the video caption states "Supporters of President Trump gathered". This was not a rally in support of Trump; participants were there to support immigration law enforcement.

The video focus exclusively on counter protesters who showed up to disrupt the rally. No coverage was provided of the main speakers.

As of early September 3, 2019, we have not seen other mainstream media coverage of this significant rally. A media blackout appears to be in effect.
