Don’t touch me: Investigative reporting gets awkward [VIDEO]

Marc Slavin is less camera shy than he lets on.

    The link on YouTube has been removed, here is the ABC link http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/video?id=7453588, unbelievable misappropriation, hope police investigate further. There is no doubt in my mind from watching Slavin that this wasn’t a pre-planned disruption, perhaps he’s done this before because it allowed the director to slip out.
