Fox News’ Mike Tobin Said He Was Hit By Wisconsin Protesters

Reported by Ellen - February 28, 2011 -

There’s no doubt that Fox News reporter Mike Tobin was heckled by the Wisconsin protesters as he spoke on the air to America’s News HQ today. And I’ll take his word for it that somebody hit him off camera – which is never OK. But the report – supposedly part of Fox News’ “objective news” team didn’t even try to pretend not to hate the protesters or to inform in any objective way about why they hate Fox News so much. Instead, Tobin made such comments as, “The hate that you get from these demonstrators – you can see it in their faces… He (a protester) wants to shut down the communication… (A) teacher told me she hates me because it makes her feel good… They have an idea that there’s going to be a diverse viewpoint, they don’t want to get it.”

At the end of the segment, “objective” news anchor Greg Jarrett said, “In just a few minutes, we’re going to be talking more about the utter (his emphasis) lack of civility and the harassment of reporters there.
