Note to PR professionals: don’t touch reporters, especially when they’re trying to interview someone. In this video, via Mediaite, we see Dan Noyes, reporter with ABC Bay Area affiliate KGO-TV get testy with the communications director for Laguna Honda hospital, Mark Slavin.

Slavin is attempting to block access to a hospital executive, and is a bit too “touchy” for Noyes’ taste, or most people’s, for that matter.
