Fox News got the tables turned last night at the Milwaukee County Democratic Party meeting in Milwaukee, WI. Shortly after the meeting got underway, chair of the Dem Party of Wisconsin, Sachin Chheda called out the reporter, producer and camera crew from Fox News (national, not the local affiliate), and makes the guy come to the front of the room to get an earful.
Check out the video and a summary below:
Dude from Fox just stands there for a bit, playing with his phone and looking rather sheepish. He then takes the mic, and says he "understands" why folks don't think Fox has any credibility.
UPDATE: I'm not posting a transcript. Here's a summary.
Dems say the pledge, and love America.
Chair calls out TV crew that just walker in, they're from Fox News. Ruth Brian is the Producer, Steve Brown is the reporter.
Chair says FNC donated $1 mil to Republican Governors Association. Why should we trust FNC to cover our GOTV effort fairly?
FNC dude mumbles
Chair asks if he wants the microphone. "This is my meeting, no one invited you...now you're here....Your news organization sir, isn't credible. [clapping]
Chair accuses FNC guy of framing questions/coverage about Michell Obama's visit to Wisconsin as showing enthusiasm gap, and being full of crap.
FNC guy takes the microphone. He's not attempting to catch something that isn't permitted. Says Milwaukee is a critical area, they're interested in WI-Sen and WI-Gov.
Chair: Do you understand why Dems think FNC is biased, not fair to Dems?
FNC: I believe in personal responsibility, I'm not responsible for everyone else at Fox. He understands why Dems feel that way, he's dealt with it before. If you don't want us here, we'll leave.
Chair lets guy stay. Leads "Fired up, Ready to Go!" cheer to end it.
