Congressman Threatens TV News Reporter [VIDEO]
Before I get to far into this story I have to say I would be pretty pist off about this too, but then what do you expect from someone in the media covering politics. So here's the story. A Reporter with Time Warner station NY1 asked Congressman Michael Grimm if he would answer a few questions about the Presidents, State of the Union Address. After the Congressman replied, the reporter then asked him about some allegations with his fundraising. Needless to say the Congressman got pretty pist and threatened the reporter and told him he "will throw him off the balcony. When asked about his actions the congressman was anything but apologetic, saying, “I was extremely annoyed because I was doing NY1 a favor by rushing to do their interview first in lieu of several other requests. The reporter knew that I was in a hurry and was only there to comment on the State of the Union, but insisted on taking a disrespectful and cheap shot at the end of the interview, because I did not have time to speak off-topic."
