    "Greg Gianforte to plead guilty for assaulting Guardian reporter"

    "Press groups ask Congress to investigate Greg Gianforte over body-slamming reporter"

    "“A member of the House hasn’t physically assaulted someone this severely since the civil war,
    and we are unaware of any historical precedent for a lawmaker beating up a reporter,”
    Gabe Rottman, Pen America’s Washington director, said in a statement. “While Rep Gianforte’s
    apology was necessary, it was hardly sufficient. Amid a climate of escalating hostility toward the press,
    it is essential for the House to send a clear message to its members and to the nation
    that hostile treatment of the press will not be tolerated or ignored.”"
