ABC7 Makes The Times: Raw Matthews-On-Clinton Action
It's too bad ABC7 News' flashy new website is so confusing or else I might be able to find the video that's snagging the local station some serious mileage in the campaign story du jour: Political reporter Mark Matthews' "verbal sparring" on Wednesday with Bill Clinton, a heated exchange of Dan Noyes-like proportions. Alas, you'll have to watch it on YouTube.
The New York Times described the exchange thusly:
"Mr. Clinton on Wednesday ripped into a television reporter who had asked him about a Nevada lawsuit concerning participation in the state's caucuses this Saturday ... the former president ... narrowed his eyes ... Mr. Clinton's voice took on an edge."
And just for fun, check out the aforementioned Noye's greatest hit: pissing off Mayor Gavin Newsom.
