Reporter Gets “Iced”

Hey, isn’t that Dow Jones/WSJ reporter Michael Crittenden?

Twitter has been abuzz with this picture of Crittenden allegedly “getting iced” at the Financial Reform Conference.

TPM’s Brian Beutler originally posted the pic to his Twitter profile, saying:

“Reporter just got Iced at the financial reform conference. Not even kidding.”

Since then, journalists ranging from NBC’s Luke Russert to Bloomberg’s Lizzie O’Leary have retweeted the infamous pic, adding hash tag #fratastichill.

FYI: Though we can’t speak to the contents of the bottle in the picture, “getting iced” is when someone is forced to get down on one knee and chug a Smirnoff Ice.
