I don't think I've ever seen a reporter and an anchor insult each other on live television before:
Note: The first part of the clip is a prosaic news report about apartment maintenance -- stay with it until it gets good (about a minute in).
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Duke University in 2009 and served as a RWJ Scholar in Health Policy Research at the University of Michigan from 2009-2011. I also tweet at @BrendanNyhan and serve as a contributor to a New York Times politics/policy website that is currently in development. Previously, I served as a media critic for Columbia Journalism Review, co-edited Spinsanity, a non-partisan watchdog of political spin, and co-authored All the President's Spin.
