Anti-Obama Protester Attacks Reporter During Live Shot
CBS Chicago reporter Jay Levine was doing a live report from outside a restaurant where President Obama was attending a fundraiser when an anti-Obama protester attacked him.
“Obama is a war criminal,” the unidentified protester shouted as he grabbed the microphone from Levine. The CBS reporter swung back and another man appeared to tackle the demonstrator.
“I’ve obviously gotten a little reinforcement here from one of the protesters who decided to speak his mind on live TV,” Levine said afterwards. “Obviously that’s his right to do.”
