This is supposedly footage of a reporter struggling to file a story from a G.O.P. party back in the ’80s, and while I can’t vouch for the veracity of that premise, I did take immense delight in the reporter’s growing frustration at the noise and people surrounding him. It’s like a precursor of Bill O’Reilly’s famous “We’ll do it live!” outburst, but with a snazzy beard like Dr. Benton Quest. More news people need to have beards besides Wolf Blitzer. Maybe Anderson Cooper should get one — er, grow one. Put those rumors to rest. You know, the rumors that he can’t grow a beard.
