    Just saying.
    Getting furious won't get the hour back.
    The question is, why was he being kept from the guests?

    That doesn't say anything about him being the only one allowed to be there. In fact, that reads a whole lot like he was the only one sent there to waste his time covering a VP appearance.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Because there are some very obvious gaps in his narrative.

I have been to fundraisers like this and people just don't sit there for an hour and fifteen minutes with only asking once if he can be let out.
    Actually, what's happening is it's TED and, to some extent Jet, that seem to be saying either the reporter was illegally confined or nothing happened here at all. I'm saying there room for the truth to fall somewhere in between.

    Also implies that it was done on purpose because it is Democrats, and the entire thread started off saying to hear how this will be spun, which to me, implies something political as well.

    But I agree with you that truth is somewhere in between. I was just saying that something in this story just didn't feel right to me. But then again, as a girl friend pointed out to me, my hunches tend to be wrong. Damn woman is always right...

    Because I don't see where the reporter himself is saying he was strong armed into the closet and falsely imprisoned there. You're making an argument against a claim he hasn't made. In fact, looking at the email he sent about it sounding like a nice party sounds like he's making light of the situation.

    Oh for crying out loud, are you kidding me? The claim has been made by implication both in the coverage and in this thread. How many times are you going to split that hair?
