    It was Biden's staff.

    Re: Vice President's staff lock journalist in a closet for hours during a fundraiser

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    All I'm going to say is this: If this were done by Dick Cheney's staff 5 years ago, we'd be hearing the same things, just from different sides.

    Nobody sees their own side's wrongs. Conservatives have a double standard too, but they currently have the luxury of being the opposition (as far as the executive branch is concerned).

    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.

    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?


    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.
    horse ****... not unless he KNEW it was going to happen ahead of time. When was the last time YOU recorded something important without previously knowing it was going to happen, even by a few seconds?

    Please show me where anything in the story shows it was 'in front of' the other guests.

    And how many would be reasonable? 10? 1,000? 2?

    If I.... If I... If I... you're not. All we have to go on so far is what was reported. You are taking leaps and bounds that defy the very logic you're trying to cling to.

    It's the second iPhone. It wasn't until the 3rd model came out that it had video capabilities. DO NOT doubt my iPhone skillz.



    Oh and he just went willingly? That's what I do when I'm ordered into closets.
    He did it as part of his job.


    Ah ok.

    So why are people claiming that he was wrongfully confined?
    No, I don't think that's the criticism, the criticism is a lack of transparency in not allowing the reporter to speak to the guests.

    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
    Yeah, but in that case, his account would be enough proof.

    You know, makes sense.
    not according to the logic you tried to use in your responses to me.

    Make up your mind.

    After half an hour, I might start asking some question.

    After an hour, I might get a little furious.

    Just saying.

    The guard was likely there to make sure he didn't speak to the guests.
