Democracy Now: Daughter of Billionaire GOP Donor Assaults Democracy Now! Producer


At the Republican National Convention, Democracy Now!’s senior producer Mike Burke attempted to interview billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson inside the RNC on Wednesday night. Moments later, a woman identified as Adelson’s daughter grabbed the video camera of Democracy Now! videographer Hany Massoud, tried to take it into a private suite and then threw the camera to the ground. The incident was caught on tape. While Adelson’s daughter first accused our producer of hitting her, she later came out of the suite to apologize.
