We know some of you reporters out there have had moments like this. In fact, after years in the control room, we’ve been on the receiving end of these kinds of rants.
Yesterday, CNBC’s Mike Huckman had exclusive comments from Bernard Madoff as he left the federal courthouse. As Huckman was getting ready for a live shot, hoping his video would be used, producers tell him they will only be using a “freeze frame” of Madoff, not the video.
On his blog, Huckman confesses:
I felt strongly that we should be using our material — material our competition didn’t have. And I blew a gasket. That was bad enough, but it got worse. While I was venting, someone else was getting his own exclusive – using his cell phone to get video and sound of me behaving badly. And now it’s on YouTube for all to see.
