That news reporter sort of deserved it. I was going schadenfreude because that reporter needs to be more professional when approaching his victims or
targets or whatever he thinks other people are to him. After the hands are applied, it's time to buzz off and say in a blurb that the business owner
declined to comment, not stalk and trespass and hope king camera of medialand and the video-cops will save the day. That's not investigative
journalism, but ambush journalism, and the reporter didn't know when to call it quits.
Have you ever been trailed by a reporter before? I have, and I thought I was being stalked because of it, enough to call the police. They were
decent people in themselves, in hindsight after they were out of whatever business they thought I was doing, but their behavior at the time scared me
enough to want to defend myself as that man did in the video. Some reporters by nature will even break the law to get a story, so they aren't
blameless when they cross people like that. Talk about bad public relations!
It was foolish for the reporter to follow a hostile man into the man's own building without permission on an obvious smear campaign. It was going to
happen. There is no such thing as immunity because of a camera.
