    Well of course there's a possibility the story is true, and the staffer(s) may have acted without approval, and so they're probably checking into it before they deny anything only to be proved wrong.

    You know, makes sense.

    if it was such a story, why did it receive no mention from the affected reporter, initially?

    I'd be banging that door down, trying to get as much attention as I could.

    Of course, reporters are known for be docile, RIGHT?

    Don't feed me this horse **** Whovian.

    You're better then that.

    There's barely been a cell phone made in the last 5 years that doesn't do video.

    I mean come on, he took a ****ing picture, it sends emails, chances are it takes video.
    Mine doesn't take video and it's an iPhone.

    Or at least a sound recorder, he could have caught the Biden staffer saying the things he said.

    Least of all, why did he take just 1 picture?

    Logical Flaw #2:

    The guests.

    How did a Biden Staffer forcebly move this guy in front of 150 people into a closet?
    Where does it say he was physically moved? The OP says he was ordered into the closet.

    Logical Flaw #3"




    In an hour and 15 minutes, all he managed to do was send 1 email, and 1 picture?

    What?

    This guy is either really confident that his story will hold up to scrutiny, or simply the worst reporter on the face of this earth.

    I mean come on, if I was stuck in a closet for an hour, I'd probably you know, tell somebody, call the cops, call my newspaper and tell them whats going on. Take a few pictures, probably one of myself in the closet with the door shut to confirm it.

    Jesus if I was this reporter, knowing that the staffers of the second in line to the presidency had done this, and the implications, I'd be thrilled with the oppertunity to have such a huge story, which is what this will be if it's true.

    All these flaws in the story are pretty big gaping holes, and I'd like you to try and film them.

    Once again, those who are going to inevitably critisize me, will think I'm doing so because of my politics and defending Biden.

    To be honest, I couldn't give 2 ****s about Biden or his staffers.

    I just think this story, and all of you, are far too eager to get along without examining just how many lapses there are in it.
    I don't think this is a situation where he was locked in a closet, so much as he was told to stay there if he wanted to cover Biden's appearance. If he had wanted to leave the party, I'm sure he would have been allowed to go. However, if he wanted to cover Biden's appearance, his option was to wait in the closet.

    I'd like to see evidence that Biden had anything to do with the decision.

    What ****ing iPhone is it then? Are you sure you know how to use it in that case? I've had cell phones from almost every different brand, over the last 10 years, they ALL took at least some form if limited video.

    Where does it say he was physically moved. The OP says he was ordered into the closet
    .

    Oh and he just went willingly? That's what I do when I'm ordered into closets.

    I don't think this is a situation where he was locked in a closet, so much as he was told to stay there if he wanted to cover Biden's appearance. If he had wanted to leave the party, I'm sure he would have been allowed to go. However, if he wanted to cover Biden's appearance, his option was to wait in the closet.
    Ah ok.

    So why are people claiming that he was wrongfully confined?

    Sorry dude, all those reasons OVERALL speak to a bigger problem with this story.

    However once again, I'm willing to be proved wrong.

    But it takes more then a single picture, and a dudes word to convince me.

    I'll remember this next year during the election when a liberal reporter says Palin sniped him from a helicopter

    Another likely situation is that the staffers had this rule for reporters but then arrived at the event and went "Oh **** we don't have a room we can put the reporter in while we wait for Biden."

    Yeah, there's more to this. Will wait for more details before caring. (although I'm unlikely to care either way, even then)
