I'd love to watch it, but it won't load.

farked??????
 
2006-09-06 01:31:33 PM
nice to know the cameraman had his back, and all.

enough to zoom in a couple of times at least...
 
2006-09-06 01:33:40 PM
I heard him rattling off his list of injuries. I think one of them was lack of consortium.

With himself.

That's what happens to you when you f*ck with a man's business.

What was the deal with the lady giving the commentary with the three way clusterfark in the background?
 
2006-09-06 01:37:45 PM
Seems to be a reporter for a Fox affiliate in San Diego... not a FOXNEWS reporter.

And it looks like the guy and his wife are total douchebags who're gonna get a vacation in a gray bar motel real soon.

2006-09-06 01:41:27 PM
Damn!
 
2006-09-06 01:41:42 PM
Why is it that grown men fight like 13 year old girls now? On the other hand, it would have been great if the mouthy biatch got knocked over while the two guys were 'fighting.'
 
2006-09-06 01:42:51 PM
Man, it's hard to pick who to root against.

and that crane shot to the "live in the newsroom" set is one of the funniest thing I've ever seen...there is nothing more worthless than "live in another part of the building" to create false immediacy.
 
2006-09-06 01:45:10 PM
you need ActiveX to run it, so either have the plug in for FF or just use IE (urk).

Anyway the woman was saying something about going to get "the gun", and even threatened the cameraman. I think the cameraman did the right thing, he continued recording when he saw that the reporter wasn't in mortal danger... the guy the reporter was interviewing had his back.

I think the scammer and his wife are going to have a vacation at PMITA prison soon.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Man, it's hard to pick who to root against.

Really? Seems pretty farking easy to me.
 
2006-09-06 01:55:44 PM
"Go fark yourself San Diego!"

That guy is definitely going to love PMITA prison!
 
2006-09-06 02:01:47 PM
That cameraman deserves an asskicking.

HURRAY FOR RATINGS over the general well-being of another human!
 
2006-09-06 02:03:25 PM
Wifey needs some jail time too.

I am guessing the brother that helped the newsman out was the soundman?
 
2006-09-06 02:03:45 PM
heh, that is why you dont turn your back on someone who is swinging at you.

ChairmanKaga: I am guessing the brother that helped the newsman out was the soundman?

I think it was the guy he was interviewing first...
 
2006-09-06 02:42:22 PM
you call that a fight? please I have seen better brawls with more damage done outside of the local Kindergarten, between gender confused children.

Fox needs to send send the "butt kicking granny" to get back some respect.
 
2006-09-06 02:47:17 PM
Just saw this on Court TV, gotta love evidence like that.
 
2006-09-06 03:17:59 PM
I'll give the scammer this--the reporter was being quite snarky with them both. And when the fighting started, did I see the reporter bite that guy in the freaking ankle?!

But still, if you're fighting a reporter on camera, you'd better know you're coming out as the bad guy.
 
2006-09-06 03:18:53 PM
What was on the lens, did someone spit on the camera?
 
2006-09-06 03:26:29 PM
ChairmanKaga: What was on the lens, did someone spit on the camera?

Keep watching, the wife gets there before the fighting starts and pours water from a bottle on the camera (and the reporter, and then slaps the reporter with the bottle).
 
2006-09-06 04:42:19 PM
COME ON! Its FOX thats not really news any how is it?
 
2006-09-06 04:43:18 PM
Holy smokes. You see that greaseball and his hairy wife go after that guy?

Damn...the only way to deal with an agitated Latino is to beat the living fark out of them until they can't get back up.
 
2006-09-06 04:44:14 PM
That reporter's fighting style makes Carl Monday look like He-Man.

FOX 6: THE TEAM THAT KNOWS SAN DIEGO
---------------------------------------
Obviously, not well enough.
 
2006-09-06 04:44:51 PM
Mr. Coffee Nerves = idiot
Sloth_DC = idiot

Anyone else too dense to know the difference between a local Fox affiliate news reporter and a FOXNews reporter?
 
2006-09-06 04:45:37 PM
LMAO!!

Now that's News and Entertainment.

/not sure about the news part though.
//quite entertaining though!
 
2006-09-06 04:46:36 PM
Finally someone does what we've all wanted to do. Beat the crap out of a Fox news reporter.
 
2006-09-06 04:46:47 PM
I saw the whole thing at lunch - totally brutal. And, similarly mentioned, couldn't the camera guy put down the stinking camera, let it roll, while helping his friend?

/won't load
 
2006-09-06 04:47:04 PM
The best is where they interview the reporter about the attack, and he keeps the dried blood on him for the cameras.
 
2006-09-06 04:47:25 PM
You stay classy, San Diego.

This far into a San Diego thread and no one has quoted Ron Burgandy?

I am ashamed of you all.

Only if "all" is the same as morons. Grow up.
 
2006-09-06 04:48:03 PM
HERO!
 
2006-09-06 04:48:04 PM
You guys are missing the real story here. A black guys actually tries to stop a fight. It might be the first time that has ever been caught on video.
 
2006-09-06 04:48:07 PM
Mr. Coffee Nerves [TotalFark]

Man, it's hard to pick who to root against.


Why?
 
2006-09-06 04:48:20 PM
That was pretty hilarious. The cameraman was a bit of a douche for not helping but honestly there was a guy helping and I'd bet that the reporter would have killed the cameraman if he hadn't captured it. This is a reporter's wet dream I would imagine.

Anyways, scuzzy Fox News reporter versus scuzzy real estate scammer. I don't care who wins: it's just pure entertainment.
 
2006-09-06 04:48:40 PM
They both fight like girls. Why in the hell did he keep letting that guy scratch him like that. You put your hands on my face and I'm gonna break all your fingers.

I beg your pardon? When the fark did I say there was a FoxNews reporter involved? Asshat.

To be fair I bet the reporter would've been pissed if the cameraman hadn't gotten the whole thing on tape. He's national news right now.
 
2006-09-06 04:49:04 PM
anyone else think that after the beatdown the reporter bore a striking resemblance to owen wilson?
 
2006-09-06 04:49:49 PM
man, real estate people even use their own kids as psycho firebug robots of doom and decoys, don't fark with em.

I just wanted to get in on the fun.
 
2006-09-06 04:51:04 PM
Should have sent a real newsman to cover the story, one who knows San Diego...

2006-09-06 04:51:12 PM
As much as it would be tempting for the cameraman to get involved, he did the right thing rolling tape and collecting evidence.

BTW, there are a lot of morons on Fark who apparently don't understand the difference between a local affiliate and a national network.
 
2006-09-06 04:51:25 PM
Finally someone does what we've all wanted to do. Beat the crap out of a Fox news reporter.

Unless they convert to Islam. Then we'll let them go.

cleveoh

That reporter's fighting style makes Carl Monday look like He-Man.

In all honesty, I have to wonder how many of us would have done any better.

The guys who do well in street fights are generally the ones who have been in a lot of them. That excludes the vast majority of normal men and, I suspect, virtually all of the ones here.
 
2006-09-06 04:53:26 PM
If I'm getting beat up, and there's a cameraman with me, I'd much rather have him rolling tape for the subsequent criminal trial and civil lawsuit than trying to keep me from getting a few extra bruises.

/cha-ching

"Go fark yourself San Diego!"

That guy is definitely going to love PMITA prison!


Was it too far into the thread for you to read the whole thing, runchkin?
