    Howard 100 News. Google it.

    Lisa Glassberg, Shuli Egar and Steve Langford. Two of the three are legitimate journalists. They're not the ones who have hijacked news conferences though.

    I didn't hear it, but what was the heckle?
    Sometimes the heckles are actually the questions that need to be asked that never get asked. Take the Stanley Cup Finals - no journo thought to ask Luongo about if he played with Tim Thomas' style, could he have saved those three goals in the first period last night. It was very relevent, especially after Luongo criticized Thomas for giving up the goal in Game 5.

    In this case, if someone had recognized that it was Benji from 'The Howard Stern Show" he should have been made to leave.

    Because God forbid anyone make a mockery of a press conference at which a politician is resigning for twittering pictures of his dick.

    He has an entire staff called Howard 100 News that has people with legit news backgrounds that work for him full time. There is also this thing called freedom of speech, oh and freedom of the press. A sense of humor makes life more bearable as well - you should look into it.

    It would be nice if colleges wouldn't hold "press conferences" to introduce the new coach and invite boosters to attend.

    I'm sure revolutionaries in the 1770s would have gone through the proper channels to get a license.

    Outgoing Rep. Anthony Weiner still deserves to be treated with respect.

    Sure.

    Can I go get some slaves down in Richmond while I am at it?

    This is a different time.

    Removing someone for disrupting a press conference isn't the same as requiring credentials.

    Requiring credentials would reduce the chance of a news conference being disrupted.
