(Washington Post) --So how out of line was the Daily Callers Neil Munro when he interrupted President Obamas formal announcement of his new immigration policy in the Rose Garden?
We asked the man whose persistence in shouting questions at presidents was the stuff of legend: retired ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson.
He didnt approve.

In the statement from the Daily Caller, Munro says that he thought the Emperor was done speaking and wanted to get the first question in. He wasn’t the only reporter asking a question, just the loudest.
Moreover, the Emperor said he would address questions when he was done and when he finished, he instead turned on his heel and stalked off.
I kid you not, these people actually DO believe this and say it with a straight face.
Let me guess....
....was I right?
Typical Democrat. Obama can break every rule beyond the pale but expects the peons to keep the rules. Lawlessness is only their card.
I guess OLD Sam is getting forgetful in his old age. He interrupted President Reagan all the time. Someone mentioned it to President Reagan and his reply was that “Sam was just being Sam” So if that is never, Sam is being very forgetful.
I remember donaldson shouting to President Reagan, not once, but quite a few times. He even called President Reagan dumb, slow thinking and nothing but an actor. Nancy said donaldson “shot from the lip”. He even helped the female reportettes make snide remarks about the way Nancy dressed. Speaking of donaldson, I recall, during the VietNam War, his busboy told others how donaldson would show up at the news reporter’s favorite restaurant with wet or damp trousers. He made it look like he’d just come in from battle. He was not always in battle as he pretended. He would “dress” for dinner....step into the shower and dampen his trousers. I kid you not..I read this from his busboy.
Wonder what Donaldson thinks of the guy who threw his shoes at Bush.
Donaldson wishes it was him.
I guess this fellow never saw a George Bush Press conference with Helen Thomas & David Gregory.
The gooks had mined and booby trapped the road and the Engineers were making big bangs. He drove up in a 50’s Buick with his camera man and tried to orchestrate a scenario.
A Platoon Sgt older and wiser than me said “Ignore the A@@hole”, so we played “Jerk Off the press”, an old Army Game, and I got my face on National TV according to my Sister.
Donaldon was a legend in his own mind for yelling out at Reagan. Reagan turned him into a standing joke
Check out the title and substance of Sam Donaldson’s book:
“an entertaining anecdotal style, Donaldson relates how he became a newsman and explores what he sees as the ends served by his work. He defends his pointed questioning of Presidents Carter and Reagan and argues that the press himself included is often too respectful of authority and not sufficiently challenging in performace of its oversight “
DODDERING OLD HYPOCRITE
Who can forget Sam Donaldson at one of those Rose Garden events shouting at Bill Clinton: Did you rape Juanita Brodderick??
He’s ridiculous to comdemn this tough-minded reporter.
