Here's an article with the mainstream "balanced", give both "sides" equal time approach, and even then it seems like the alt-right/UniteTheRight groups came in rumbling for a fight. The anarchists, anti-fa and more peaceful leftists seem to be primarily blocking their way, and occasionally throwing things. One other thing that stood out is that there were far more cameras than violence from either side. Much of the violence appeared to be a couple people fighting surrounded by a hoard of cameras.
The police seemed outnumbered, but competent and much more effective than the shield swinging protesters from either side.
