Sam Donaldson ‘resents’ Tucker Carlson’s comparison to White House heckler

During President Barack Obama’s remarks Friday regarding his new immigration policy Neil Munro, a reporter from the Daily Caller, interrupted the president by shouting out questions.  The editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson, tried to compare Munro’s outburst to that of former ABC News White House correspondent Sam Donaldson during the Reagan era. The Huffington Post reports:

Shortly after Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro interrupted President Barack Obama’s remarks on changes in immigration policy Friday, Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson suggested to The Huffington Post that the reporter’s actions were similar to those of former White House correspondent Sam Donaldson during the Reagan years.

In a later official statement, Carlson again mentioned Donaldson when taking issue with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer dismissing Munro as a “heckler.”

“I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan,” Carlson said. “And she shouldn’t have. A reporter’s job is to ask questions and get answers.”
