As national media outlets and their employees depict town hall meeting protesters as right-wing outsiders organized by conservative organizations, the Atlanta affiliate of NBC aired a segment Friday evening that should act as a fine example of how this uprising in America should be covered.
11 Alive reporter Duffie Dixon not only showed a heated exchange between Rep. David Scott (D-13th District) and a man asking him about his position on pending healthcare legislation in the House, but also interviewed the questioner when Scott erroneously contended the man was not a constituent and was only trying to hijack his meeting.
As Dixon shared with her viewers, not only wasn't the questioner an organized outsider, he was actually a local doctor (video embedded below the fold, h/t Hot Air via Terri Green):

Someone needs to remind him that he works for and not the other way around.
Someone needs to remind him that he works for US and not the other way around.
This congressman has a really bad case of “Don’t ask me anything that makes me uncomfortable or makes me look bad.”
Demonrats being exposed as the tyrants they desire to be and showing why they cannot be trusted with healthcare.
Somebody is racist!
“I’m the Boss...your the little people...got it?”
These congressment get increasingly arrogant the longer they stay in D.C. In their view, their constituents are supposed to applaud their shuck and jive routine and vote for them until they’re ready to retire.
Questions and opposition are not to be countenanced.
Whats funny is that the good doctors not even a republican. Stupid democrats think all the people in their party support a government takeover when they don’t.
This congress clown is pretty arrogant and hostile to the tax payers he works for. What a worthless piece of $hit!
Very predictable behavior, shout at the questioner and then lie through the teeth. I guess that is what the DNC put out as “the talking points” LIE LIE LIE, and if that don’t work,lie again and call on the SEIU thugs.
Cong. Scott, you are an elitist. How many people will be “approved” to enter your healthcare meeting to ask questions? The cost of healthcare has skyrocketed BECAUSE of government involvement...and you want to give us even more of the same? Lunacy!
Why do communists always look so angry and full of hate? They never seem to be happy unless they are unhappy and miserable.
Since 1978, Scott has owned Dayn-Mark Advertising, which places billboards and other forms of advertising in the Atlanta area. Scott's wife, Alfredia, now heads the business. In May 2007, it was reported that the business owes more than $150,000 in back taxes and penalties. Scott's campaigns have paid the company more than $500,000 since 2002 for office rent, printing, T-shirts, and other services. He has also paid his wife, two daughters, and son-in-law tens of thousands of dollars for campaign work such as fund raising and canvassing.
In 2007, Scott was named one of the 22 most corrupt members of Congress by the political watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington In addition to the above complaints Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington also brought into question David Scott's character after he called his Congressional opponent, Deborah Honeycutt, a 'bitch.' After it was reported that Congressman Scott had called Dr. Deborah Honeycutt a 'bitch,' Donzella James, Scott's 2008 Democratic Primary Opponent, issued this statement: "[David Scott] has been disrespectful to me and other women in my presence. Even in mixed company, he often makes vulgar references that are less than gentlemanly."
Not surprised he called his opponent a “bitch.” Looked like he was very close to letting loose a racial epithet on the doctor in the clip. Hateful, corrupt, vulgar, mendacious. . . CongressThug Scott you are an embarassment to your constituents, your party. . . and really, all of humanity.
so, why do people keep re-electing such scum?
Dr. Hill couldn’t POSSIBLY be a constituent of Rep. Scott-he’s white. (so thought Rep Scott)
Because its a majority democrap district, and a majority of the democraps in that district think the same way he does.
