ABC News NYC mosque protests, Bias?

Pretend that you don't know who the messenger (NewsBusters) is and then be objective about the substance of the message! As ABC has reported it has reprimanded its employee there appears to be no doubt that the incident occured.

Just some flunky trying to be a hotshot. I don't think ABC sends reporters out to do interviews with phone cameras. While he was clearly off base, the headline "ABC News tries to incite...." is clearly also biased and misleading. Another ginned up "big deal".

If you read the article their where two ABC personnel there an ABC camera man filming the confrontation, and the freelance soundman engaged in creating the confrontation. The cameraman was identified as ABC affiliated and the freelance soundman was not identified.

It is quite clear that the unidentified freelance soundman was engaging in provocation with the ABC cameraman employee present and not objecting. One has to wonder what images would have been broadcast had the pair not been unmasked, identified and reported.

It's positively amazing.

I now use a stopwatch when I leave my property............rarely will more than one minute go by before there's another observation and/or interaction. It goes downhill from there.
