Democratic Strategist Assaults Reporter

The physical assault on Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack begins at 1:39 on this video:

The thug, identified as Democratic strategist Michael Meehan, pretends to be helping McCormack up while deliberately obstructing his access to Coakley.

Fox News is reporting the news of the assault
The rough-and-tumble world of politics was on full display Tuesday night when longtime Democratic strategist Michael Meehan was caught on videotape shoving a reporter for the Weekly Standard into a metal railing, reportedly giving him a large tear in his pants.

The incident occurred outside of a Washington fundraiser for Martha Coakley, the Democratic candidate in a competitive race to fill the seat of the late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Puppet media like the Boston Globe are covering for Meehan and Coakley.
