    I'm sorry, was I talking to you or commenting about you specifically? If not, how did I in any way claim that's something you said?

    Huh, imagine that, a conservative engaging in "liberal spin."

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

    Reporter Scott Powers says Biden's staff kept him confined in a closet during posh fundraiser

    Scott Powers, a veteran political reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, was the lone newsman assigned to cover the $500-a-head bash for Sen. Bill Nelson at the home of developer and Democratic bigwig Alan Ginsburg on Wednesday.
    Powers told Drudge that Ginsburg called him on Friday to apologize.

    "He said he had no idea they'd put me in a closet and was very sorry," Powers said. "He said he was just following their lead and was extremely embarrassed by the whole thing."
    Why would the guy call the reporter to apologize, if it never happened?

    I await the liberal spin on this too.

    So far, all I've seen is the word of a reporter who, having been confined against his will, didn't call the cops.

    Nope, sorry, not buying it as it's been written.

    I wonder why that is? If it was a Fund Raiser why did they allow any reporters?

    Probably because the VP was going to make an appearance.

    It seems to me that that's at least part of what pool reporters do -- following around the President and Vice President.

    The cops weren't called because he thought he would be allowed to get an interview

    That does not explain how this reporter was the only one allowed there

    If things don't add up... WHY did the guy call and apologize to the reporter? Isn't that something you do when you' do something wrong???

    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.
    I don't think anyone said he couldn't leave if he wanted to. He just wasn't allowed to mingle with the guests. He waited there to eventually be able to do his job. Nobody actually "did" anything to him. The question should be, "why was he asked to wait in a storage closet?" Where's the transparency in this administration?
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Do we have it from anyone other than the reporter than he was apologized to?
