this actually happened
Don’t you love how reporters love to forget what their jobs are and like to attempt to put things in people’s mouths?
epitome of “da fuck?”
Every Negro in America has made this face at least once
Just for the sake of defending reporters, yeah, that was not a reporter. That was somebody in the audience being a dumbass during his speech at the Democratic National Committee.
And just for the sake of explaining, a speech is different from a press conference. In a speech, you sit there and listen, hoping for a hand out from their press secretary because you won’t get the chance to ask questions unless you’re able to rush the stands to press your microphones and recording devices to the speaker’s face as he tries to escape to the reception area. In a press conference, the speaker is front and center, and gets pounded by a flurry of questions. True, there might be a speech that precedes the press conference, at which time, the press will grill the speaker on key points of his or her speech. And hey, if you’re a reporter, you might sometimes try and pound them on issues that have nothing to do with what you just heard.
A person who interrupts someone’s speech isn’t a reporter. Because I hope to God a reporter knows the difference between a speech and a Q/A portion. That’s how we cultivate relationships with sources - by respecting them and the time they give to us.
We call people who interrupt speeches, hecklers.
