He ill-served his new media colleagues.
I would not worry about eliminating alternative media. This guy is a boor and another one of those carrying out a "stunts" for the tea party, of which we have had quite enough. His association with Joe Wilson says it all.
He needs to be kept out of the president's news conference until he learns how to behave to the President of the United States. I have never seen such disrespect to any president before.
My how quickly the MSM and the left forget. The reporters did this all the time to Reagan and GW Bush. Now all of a sudden, it is in poor taste. Funny.
I think most people would agree this was out of line, but I must say I'm surprised, and pleased to see the Star Tribune denounce incivility.
I anxiously await the your denounciation the next time a leftist throws pennies or a pie, or glitter at a politician with whom they disagree or shouts down a someone expressing a view they dislike.
It has nothing to do with smaller media organizations and everything to do with right wing thuggery. Lets call it for what it is -- contempt for a black president, and it permeates their unstated strategy.
It's a sad commentary on today's media when a poorly timed question by a reporter gets more press than the President overextending his authority by enacting a policy through executive order that he couldn't get passed by Congress.
Funny how nobody ever accused Sam Donaldson of heckling Ronald Reagan. Oh, wait. Republican President.
vlmartin, the Tea Party is just getting started. When the adults finally regain control of this country, we're sure you'll just love the result. Enjoy.
Just bounce the kid out until he can learn how to behave as an adult. If you want to get treated as a professional you need to act like one.
How many reporters were throwing pennies or glitter? Last I checked it was a little south of zero.
Heckling has nothing to do with journalism. But on the other hand, neither do reporters who ask softball questions, or fail to challenge politicians who dodge and weave their way around the tough questions with canned talking points. I'm not sure what's worse -- an obnoxious blogger who should probably be banned forever from access to the White House, or a mainstream journalist who dares not question a candidate's obvious obfuscations -- for fear that he or she might lose access, or be castigated by one side or another for doing his job.
