Why is Howard Dean FOX News so angry?

AMERICAblog hears someone went batshit-crazy today at the Harry Reid/Howard Dean meeting, but it wasn’t who the MSM would like to think.

Our sources tell us that a photo-op took place today with Howard Dean and Senator Harry Reid in Reid’s private office (these are usually secreted away in the Capitol Building itself, near the Senate floor). FOX News’s Brian Wilson reportedly spent the photo op angrily interrupting reporters and shouting questions out of turn. After an initial swarm, reporters squeezed out the door. FOX’s Brian Wilson was apparently wearing no credential of any kind (that wasn’t a red flag to anyone) and behaving “bizarrely angry” so the Washington Post’s Mark Leibovich asked who he was.

We hear that Wilson “went nuts,” responding to the Post reporter (whose credentials were clearly on display):

“Who the fuck are you?”

Gee, Brian, do you kiss Rupert with that mouth?

The Post reporter then responded that he was from the Washington Post and didn’t see credentials on Wilson and because of his incredibly pointed questions wondered whether or not he was a rogue Republican staffer!

As they raced down the hall outside the austere Senate chamber, we’re told that Wilson displayed an impressive knowledge of four-letter words, and was incredulous that he would either not be recognized without proper ID or would be called out on being completely one-sided and working from GOP talking points.

See, and folks thought things wouldn’t be nearly as interesting now that Jeff Gannon is history.
