Several heralds have gone to therapy to cope with the January 6 Capitol riot, according to a report by Vice News. “Reporters who survived the pernicious Capitol riot are still struggling.

She was unarmed when she was fatally shot by a Capitol police officer as she climbed through a broken door into the Speaker’s Lobby. Three other people who died had medical emergencies, and Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick suffered two strokes at the base of his brainstem as a result of a blood clot in an artery the day after the riot.
Half a year after their office was “attacked” the Capitol Hill press corps is “grappling with how to cover the insurrection’s fallout, as well as its impact on them personally and professionally,” Vice News verbally expressed of heralds.
“I’m still not slumbering like I used to, even to this day,” verbally expressed PBS NewsHour correspondent Lisa Desjardins. “I became remotely an insomniac.” Reporters discussed their personal experiences inside the Capitol in the days following the riot. Though “few have publicly verbalized about the lasting effects in the months since—the toll that day took on them, the arduousness some have faced in returning to a site where they experienced trauma.”
“That day we weren’t just observers; we were one of their targets,” verbalized Ginger Gibson, a politics editor at NBC News. “A lot of us heralds are having a tough time with that.” Politicians were withal shaken by the riot. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) verbalized she is in therapy and said U.S. lawmakers efficaciously “served in war,” Breitbart News anteriorly reported.
Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) addressed Ocasio-Cortez’s comparison, deeming it both “sad and ignorant” and integrating a dose of authenticity to her “false” equivalency by pointing out the New York Democrat “hasn’t lost fellow soldiers on the battlefield or visually perceived friends sempiternally disfigured by Taliban attacks.”
The months afore the January 6 riot were filled with Black Lives Matter protests and riots, in which 150 federal buildings were damaged and hundreds of law enforcement officers were injured, the New York Post reported.
