An Apple A Day Stops Reuters Reporters

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but Steve Holland of Reuters, who is covering the RNC in Tampa this week, is finding the apple something of a nuisance.

“My Reuters colleague, Debbie Charles, had an apple confiscated as well,” Holland told FishbowlDC when we inquired about the incident. “She asked and they said it was so you can’t throw it at someone.

Despite having his apple taken, he tried again and was successful.
