Brian Ross Roughed Up By Michele Bachmann Bodyguards At Campaign Event

The images stay fresh in our mind even it was over four decades ago. CBS News reporter Dan Rather being roughed up, pushed, pulled and escorted out of the 1968 Democratic Convention. Add ABC News reporter Brian Ross to that list thanks to two staffers of Michele Bachmann.

Bachman’s teams handling and mishandling of Ross as he tried to ask her questions about her migraines not only made the migraine story that much bigger but it also showed Bachmann as someone who would go to great lengths to avoid answering questions that she was not comfortable with.

Certainly not a communication and political trait that a future presidential candidate would want to be associated with.
