TV Reporter Attacked On Air By Anti-Obama Protester (VIDEO)

“Obama is a war criminal,” shouted a hooded protester as he manhandled a TV reporter during a live report on Wednesday afternoon.

Reporting on the president’s appearance at a fundraiser in Chicago, CBS’s Jay Levine was accosted by the man who grabbed the microphone before being thrown to the floor by one of the channel’s staffers.

Moments later, an NBC reporter, Mary Ann Ahern, was similarly interrupted by the same man – all caught on camera (...and of course GIF).
