The first report linking the attack to the BLM protest seems to be the Daily Mail's. Entirely predictable. Then the BBC followed the same tack.
Nowadays dear old Auntie Beeb is so afraid of its political masters that it is quite happy to show a 3 year old clip of laughing boy laying a wreath rather than the actual footage where he was almost too pissed to stand. Or, indeed, to allow the wonderful Laura Kuenssberg to report false accounts of a Tory staffer being punched by a labour activist. So we can hardly be surprised that they might treat this incident with a similar disregard of the facts.
