Posted on 06/29/2007 6:37:28 AM PDT by kristinn
A man grabbed the microphone out of the hands of Fox News reporter Laura Ingle while she was doing a live report on the debut of the I-Phone outside the Apple store on 5th Avenue in New York City.
The microphone, adorned with the Fox News logo, was quickly recovered. Ingle was just beginning to interview a Newsday reporter who had been given a preview model of the I-Phone to test when the thief ran up and grabbed the microphone, ignoring the much in-demand I-Phone.
Ingle reported a minute later that the microphone was recovered and the thief taken into custody.
Just getting a jump on the fairness doctrine, I suppose.
Whew! Thank goodness, now I'll be able to sleep tonite.
Fox News covering another ‘phony’ story.
I was watching that as it happened. It was only a second or so after she said they should probably have some additional security around them.
he was only assertng his right to equal time on the airwaves
I saw this happen live. They didn’t show it back or give the guy the “air time” that he wanted. He just ran up to the reporterett and yanked the mike out of her hand while saying the F word. Camera jerked around. And they said he was “subdued” quickly.
Meanwhile, the Mac cultists in line continued wetting themselves like cocker spaniels in anticipation of getting their hands on the latest, hippest toy from their object of worship, Steve Jobs.
Yep.... you would have thought after that event that when they went back to the Iphone guy interview, that they wouldn’t have let the people be so close behind the interviewer.
Yup, the Fairness Doctrine in action. You could not come up with a better example.
Isn’t Senator Durbin supposed to be in Washington?
The thief mistook the microphone for the new I-Phone!
Such anger. Would you like to talk about it?
No to mention the SJDS displayed in post 9.
Oh great! Kristinn gets away with posting a vanity, made up title and on top of it, he wont even link us to a video of the incident? Come on man! :oP /h
Was the moonbat’s name by chance Whoraldo?
“Such anger. Would you like to talk about it?”
Actually, what sicon posted was funny, and pretty much spot on.
The Apple collective behaves much like the looney left, (in fact, they are often one in the same). They are zealots, anyone who isn’t with them is seen as a brainless barbarian. It’s not common to find a mac user who isn’t a zealot.
And I’m not a Microsoftie. I don’t care what computer you use, a computer is a computer. I just don’t care for the arrogant, enthusiasm of the Apple world.
If it'd have been CNN they'd have given said creation of moonbat a half hour show on Saturday....
Don’t drop the iPhone!
At least they’re not bothering the Energizer Bunny anymore.
I disagree with you, respectfully. I believe that the Apple product liine has created more zealotry among its detractors than among those who happen to prefer the hardware and OS to what is available in the PC paradigm. I have simply encountered more frustration using non-Apple equipment than I have using Apple products. But then again, I’m not a gamer or tinkerer, and most of my work is in the graphics and video field. Sure, there may be some who go over the top, but please, don’t lump all Apple users into the “gay liberal” model.
Probably couldn’t resist grabbing the phallic looking thing.
iPhone - the Paris Hilton of ‘smart phones’
Earlier this year in D.C. a moonbat spat on the Fox News microphone being held by Griff Jenkins, a Fox News crew was menaced and their satellite truck had a rock thrown though its windshield.
Ah, that took me a while. I was microseconds away from posting a response I would have regretted!
Save the iPhone! Reporters we got.
“Sure, there may be some who go over the top, but please, dont lump all Apple users into the gay liberal model.”
As with most things, the loudest among you become your public personna. Unfortunate, but true.
I see a place for all platforms, and I see the shortcomings of each. Honestly, it doesn’t matter one bit to me what anyone computes with. For all you know, I’m on a Linux platform, but would it matter?
Personal experience is key. You obviously have encountered one too many Microsofties. I’ve run into one too many snobby mac zealots.
But I still say Sicon’s characterization of mac users was funny! And I’d bet that most mac users are amused at the characterization of pc users as: living in their parent’s basement, wearing pointy ears, and chatting about comic books!
Little wussy liberal grabbing the mike from a female reporter. Does anyone remember when one these little punks tried this with Brian Wilson several years back? It was great! Wilson, who is a big man, threw him aside like a rag doll and continued his repert. Classic!
“Is this why Steve Jobs always dresses head to toe in black?”
You bet! Good call. ;)
How dare he interrupt their commercial.
Mac or PC? :]
She did mention after the attack that while preparing for the segment, people in line were making comments about Fox News.
Gosh, I hope Shep wasn’t watching. That might put him right on the fainting couch....
Apple put Al Gore on their Board of Directoirs after he lost the 2000 election. They are die-hard DemocRATs head to toe. Gayrods all.
Laura Ingle was the smartest local person on KFI.
He’s the Marshall Applewhite of the computer world.
Maybe the moonbat had gotten high chuffing FDS.
Think of a shelf at the Walgreen's.
I don’t know about you, but every cocker spaniel I ever saw peed all over the floor whenever someone came into the house due to their excitement.
You sure chuckle a lot. :P
here’s a post I was hoping for. thanks :)
Here's three times the pleasure... for ya!
He was going to do that as soon as he got back to his parent's basement...
