ABC News Stonewalls – Refuses to Release Bachmann Beatdown Video—
The liberal media is at it again. ABC News SAYS their reporter was roughed up yesterday by Michele Bachmann’s security team. But nearly 24 hours after the incident they have still not released the video they reportedly possess of the encounter.
They just expect you to accept it as fact.
ABC reporter Brian Ross harassed Michele Bachmann at an event yesterday and blocked her from getting into her car. There are reports that Ross was roughed up but ABC won’t release video.
What’s up, ABC?
Here’s the report from yesterday…
ABC reporter Brian Ross gang-rushed Michele Bachmann today at a speaking event. Bachmann aides were forced to detain the out-of-control liberal reporter.
ABC has not released video of the attack.
The Plum Line reported:
This morning, the Daily Caller published a story I was inclined to leave to others: Michele Bachmann suffers from severe migraines.
But now the Bachmann camp has suddenly invited a whole lot more scrutiny to the story. At an event today, ABC News reporter Brian Ross tried to ask her about her condition, and according to another reporter on the scene, Time’s Michael Crowley, Bachmann’s handlers got pretty rough and aggressive with Ross:
Ross dashed after Bachmann, repeatedly asking whether she had ever missed a House vote due to a migraine. She ignored him. Ross pursued her into a parking area behind the stage. Her aides grew alarmed. When Ross made a beeline for the white SUV waiting to carry Bachmann away, two Bachmann men pounced on him, grabbing and pushing him multiple times with what looked to me like unusual force. In fact, I have never seen a reporter treated so roughly at a campaign event, especially not a presidential one. Ross was finally able to break away and lob his question at Bachmann one more time, but she ignored him again.
Afterward, I asked Ross — a hard-nosed pro who nevertheless seemed slightly shaken — whether he’d ever been treated so roughly. “A few times,” he told me. “Mostly by mafia people.”
ABC, this isn’t 2002. We just don’t automatically trust your biased reporting anymore.
Put it up – or shut up.
