An Apple A Day Stops Reuters Reporters

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but Steve Holland of Reuters, who is covering the RNC in Tampa this week, is finding the apple something of a nuisance.

“My Reuters colleague, Debbie Charles, had an apple confiscated as well,” Holland told FishbowlDC when we inquired about the incident. “She asked and they said it was so you can’t throw it at someone. I didn’t carry an umbrella in because I had one of those confiscated at the 2004 RNC convention in New York. But I didn’t think about the apple. I promptly bought another one once inside.”

Despite having his apple taken, he tried again and was successful.
