PENTAGON POLICE GRAB TAPE FROM FOX NEWSMAN
A FOX NEWS cameraman was accosted by Pentagon Police outside the building on Tuesday -- as he was shooting pictures of an arrest being carried out by Virginia State Police on a highway that runs alongside the Pentagon but outside Pentagon property!
The FOX staffer was ordered to turn over the videotape.
When he balked, he was handcuffed.
His camera was immediately seized and the tape was confiscated.
"Is this America!?" demanded a news producer at the network's DC bureau.
"He was subsequently released with his camera but the Pentagon is refusing to return the tape," says FOX's Brit Hume.
The nation's top-rated all-news channel is preparing to lodge a formal complaint with officials, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Hume calls the episode a "disturbing development" which may reflect on the new "restrictive information policies of the Defense Department."
A FOX Source notes: "We still don't have the tape and they haven't given us any indication of when we might expect it -- It makes you wonder who is on it?"
