Anyone see the 11 o Clock Channel 2 News Last Night?

Hey,
Did anyone see the 11 o clock channel 2 news yesterday? They were down on ALberta after Last Thursday. I think they were doing a live feed. I was making silly faces behind the camera when one of the employees came up and pushed me out of camera shot, basically assaulting me. He was mad because everyone is supposed to take their bullshit news seriously and they want to make everyone watching the bullshit news to think that everyone else takes it seriously so they should too. He basically had the same mentality of a cop. I would encourage everyone, when ever you see a news camera to act as bizarre as possible, do gross things and be weird and creepy, basically lets make a point to let them know that we think they are bullshit while they are filming, especially if its a live feed.

He then accused me of being drunk for no reason because I wasnt just shuffling down the side walk pretending like the asshole weren't there.
