Brian Mooar, who reports for NBC’s affiliate news service and often appears on MSNBC, was doing a live shot from the Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC this afternoon. And it did not go over well with some of the participants who were sitting nearby trying to listen to the speakers. At least four people approached Mooar during his liveshot, while one woman stood up from her seat and shouted him down.
But Mooar explained he was not being singled out. “Actually Fox is getting shouted down a little bit too, right now, so I guess it’s equal opportunity shouting down.” (Clips from MSNBC & FNC after the jump)
As he continued with the live shot, and more attendees approached to tell him he was being rude, MSNBC anchor Norah O’Donnell added, “Sounds like the people that organized that summit didn’t organize it very well… to put the press in a way where you guys could do reporting about what’s going on, without being harassed.”
Let’s see if the organizers find a better place for the press by tonight, when Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly participates on a panel.
