I Agree With the Value Voters Here

I actually agree with the folks at the conservative Values Voters Summit trying to shut up the MSNBC reporter. It’s always struck me as rude when TV reporters do live shots during public events in a way that ruins the experience for the people there.

But, what if that is where the conference organizers told them to report from (the same conference organizers who invited the media in the first place)? Isn’t it then more the organizers’ fault for not giving them a place to report from that wouldn’t disrupt the event and not the reporters’ faults for just doing their job?

I agree that it seems your beef is with the organizers, not the press. The reporters went exactly where they were told by the organizers–who have since apologized to MSNBC and Fox. I agree that TV reporters doing live shots can be annoying, but that’s the trade-off when the organizers want attention

I agree that the beef is with the conference organizers. Rules governing when and where the reporters may do live shots should have taken into account the attendees’ ability to hear the proceedings. The press can’t be blamed for standing where they were told to stand.
