FNC Producer Involved in Scuffle at Pelosi Briefing

pelosi_5-15.jpgSpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi‘s news-making briefing yesterday was not the only excitement in the room — some press members got into a scuffle as well.

Roll Call reports Fox News producer Chad Pergram, “got a bit hot under the collar with a photographer who had been jostling him” during the briefing. An insider tells TVNewser the photographer, who was either “new or doesn’t cover the Hill very much,” tried to push his way into position, past a videographer and into Pergram, when Pelosi began to leave.

But she was pulled back to the podium by a final question, and the bumping continued. After the briefing ended, the verbal sparring between Pergram and the photog did not.

Still, it never reached Vince Morris-like levels.
