v27_obamaIssue: President Obama was heckled by a reporter during his immigration remarks. Obama announced that the Department of Homeland Security will stop deportations and grant work permits for students who meet certain requirements, but during his remarks, Obama suddenly addressed a person in the crowd, telling him that he was not yet taking questions. "Excuse me, sir, it's not time for questions, sir," Obama said. "Not while I'm speaking." At the end of his speech, Obama referred back to the person who interrupted him. "And the answer to your question is sir, and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question, is this the right thing to do for the American people...I didn't ask for an argument. I'm answering your question," he said, speaking over the man's protests. "It is the right thing to do for the American people."

The camera flashed to a man who was quickly identified as The Daily Caller's Neil Munro, who wrote about the news of Obama's announcement on Friday. ABC's Diane Sawyer, who was anchoring the network's breaking news coverage with George Stephanopoulos, described the man who interrupted Obama as someone who was "clearly considered a heckler." Former George W. Bush spokesman Tony Fratto tweeted, "Reporters don't interrupt presidential statements. Period. @NeilMunroDC should be banned from WH."

Question: Was Munro just being a good reporter, or was his heckling complete disrespect of the president?

This is not what reporters do. They show respect to the president, even if they don't like him or agree with his politics, which means letting the man finish his speech before shouting questions at him. This reporter completely lacked civility and maturity.

He knew darn well the president was not finished. There has been more disrespect to this office than any other previous office and we all know why that is.

Everyone has different opinions about the president's stance on immigration, but the blatant disrespect this man showed the president is out of line.

This reporter should not be able to cover the white house anymore. Clearly, he is unprofessional. It's pitiful what this nation has evolved to and how the office of the president can be so blatantly disrespected.
