Billabong's story

by Tom Sullivan

It has not been that long since Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed journalist Ben Jacobs. So this bit of video from a health care rally at the Capitol Building has been eating at me for a couple of weeks.

The large fellow in the Billabong tee gets angry about The Opposition reporter Jordan Uhl filming him "celebrating a woman who survived cancer losing her health insurance.” But there is a 1st Amendment right to shoot video in a public space and a policeman is looking on. It's not clear Billabong ever touched the reporter.
