Following ‘Outburst Heard ‘Round the World,’ WFAA Posts Raw Footage of Obama Interview

In what Politico dubbed “the outburst heard ’round the world,” President Obama chided WFAA‘s Brad Watson at the end of a 7-minute interview on Monday, telling the veteran reporter, “Let me finish my answers next time we do an interview, all right?”

As news outlets around the country have picked up the story, the Dallas ABC-affiliate is now giving people the opportunity to decide for themselves if Watson (or the President) went too far.

WFAA has made raw footage of the interview (video above) available on its website and addressed the issue in a post, saying, “We heard from a variety of viewers: some believed Brad was too soft while others thought he was too harsh and still a few others thought his interview with President Obama was appropriate.”
