He was wrong. But in a day and age of ambush journalism I'm surprised outbursts like this don't happen more often. But then again being a public figure he should be used or prepared for this. Shame on him.

Perfect example of the hypersenstive con, who wants the use the media when they see fit, but turn tail and run when the tough questions are asked. Much like their leadership(cough) who comes out to make a prepared and polled statement, for the benefit of what's left of their base, then run away from the podium. The brother grimm must've somehow thought his threatening of the reporter would stop the investigation. LMAO.

Fox News, especially Bill O'Reilly do routinely assign reporters armed with cameras and mics to ambush Democrat politicians, near their homes or place of work, with nasty questions._Imagine a Democrat Politicians making a physical threat to a Fox News reporter?????
They would pull Obama into it in a NY minute...

Threatening each other is a Republican culture. This is how they function in D.C.
_Limbaugh and T-Baggrz on Fox News threaten to bad-mouth GOP members of Congress if they work with Democrats... Any Republican working with Obama gets punished... Govs Krispy Kreme Christie and Kruty Crab Charlie Crist are a couple of victims of GOP Media hustlers meanest...

Grimm was only ( to use urban slang ) selling "wolf tickets". He had no intentions of actuallly committing bodily harm to reporter Stott.

And you know that?
How?

_ Well, there are reports of Grimm pulling a gun during an argument at a bar ;and also, Grimm has asked another anchor from same NY1 TV outlet to a "let's take it outside" because he did not like the line of questioning.... Grimm is your typical GOP bully in D.C. who'd shutdown our government or default on our debt whenever Democrats would not allow them to get their way....

_Obama is dealing with members of Al-Quaeda abroad and local GOP terrorists. God help us!

This was hardly an example of "ambush" journalism. The reporter asked a legitimate question about the congressman's background. As an elected politician he is rightfully subjected to questioning from the media.
I notice that Grimm picked on a guy who was about half his size. He is a bully and a thug, who deserves to be thrown out of office.

Funny, Richard Sherman is called vile racist names by 'Thug Racist Savages' for "trash-talking" an equally large player on the football field, yet not a peep from those same 'Thug Racist Savages' about Grimm's hateful, violent threats against a young, small statured reporter.

And we won't even mention Justin Bieber, Rob Ford...

Enough of the White Liberal Media, who on one hand pretend to be tolerant and accepting of diversity, yet on the other, provoke ire and hate towards blacks in order to "keep them in their place".

Congress should investigate and take administrative action of necessary. The ELITE of Washington need to know there are limits, this is an internal matter or the alternative media will pounce.
Doubtful. Since there was no investigation of the many repeated crimes of the bush administration, it is clear the precedent has been set. People in government are above the law. As to the media doing anything other than what the owners want, it will never happen. Not only was bush above the law, the media ignored his abuses over and over. There was no law he could break that they would even mention. As to the "other side" providing a check or balance, you may remember Pelosi said if she became the speaker of the house, there would never be any investigations of bush, no matter what. She enabled his crime spree and should have gone to jail with all the other criminals.

No, I would think bullying is unacceptable. My thought was, Are these people so arogant they think they are above the law? In Indiana, an assault charge could be filed. In the age of video, youtube, and different news links, would,nt a short fused person be swell to have on the nuke trigger?
