Reporter Attacked by Anti-Obama Protester During Live Report
"Chicago reporter James Levine was reporting live on President Barack Obama coming to Chicago for a fundraiser when an anti-Obama protester attacked him.
The attacker pushed Levine and shouted to the camera, `Obama is a war criminal!`"
Levine turned back to the camera and said: I`ve obviously gotten a little reinforcement here from one of the protesters who decided to speak his mind on live TV. Obvious that`s his right to do."
James Levine may look very professional in his suit and tie, but he is an embarrassment to his profession.
The anti-Obama protestor didn`t have the right to physically assault the reporter, and basically take over a live camera feed. That`s not an example of freedom of speech; it`s an example of hooliganism and violent behavior.
With all due respect James Levin is a wimp!
If the anti-Obama protestor wants to express his political views he can write a letter to the editor or write a blog, viewers don`t want their newscast to be interrupted by a jerk.
