BY JIM FLINK You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy “The incident exploded onto the blogosphere with headlines like “Biden Locks Reporter in a Closet,” “Biden Thugs Imprison Reporter,” “Reporter Imprisoned.” (ABC) Could it be true? The Vice President of the United States -- a hostage taker? Depending on who you talk to -- yes. Or -- uhh -- well, not really. The scene -- a Democratic fundraiser in Orlando. The Orlando Sentinal’s Scott Powers was sent to represent the media -- and cover Joe Biden’s speech. ABC’s Good Morning America picks up the story from there. (Powers): “The protocol is, they didn’t want me to talk to anybody.” (Matt Gutman): “He waited, and waited, poking his head out a few times. Did you have a little tin car on the bars and asking them, hey, let me out?” (Powers): “I kept opening the door and peeking out trying to see what I could see. I kept being told, go back inside, we’ll let you know when you can come out.” (Gutman): “But he was shooed right back in.” (Powers): “I was in there for over an hour. An hour and 15 minutes before they finally said come on out.” ABC’s Jake Tapper says, while so-called waiting rooms are often provided for reporters at fund-raisers such as this, they’re usually well-equipped holding rooms, not closets. “‘Lack of a better hold room’ is an interesting way of putting it. Powers was the designated pool reporter, there to record the proceedings for the press corps in general. Forcing reporters into closets is generally not the tradition of politicians in the US.” The Drudge Report says while guests paid 500 dollars a plate for deviled eggs and crustini -- Powers was imprisoned with -- consignment goods. “And no crustini for Powers, either. He made do with a bottle of water to sip as he sat at a tiny makeshift desk, right next to a bag marked ‘consignment.’” Reason Magazine expresses righteous indignation at the strong-armed thuggery of Biden’s staff. “The punchline here should be that the vice president's staff did Powers a favor by sparing him another of Biden's rambling, idiotic speeches. The treatment of Powers offended guests who heard about it later, along with the owner of the house, developer Alan Ginsburg, who apologized to the reporter.” But on his own blog, the reporter in question, Powers says -- wow -- the spin-doctors are out of control with this one. “Take a couple details of information, toss them into the Internet and it can become like a child’s game of telephone — with each rendition adding spin and details. Only in this politically-charged environment, those spin and details can crystallize toward scandal. That’s especially true when it involves the vice president of the United States in an administration that has enraged a segment of American society.” The Village Voice notes -- good luck with any real sympathy from any quarters Scott. At least, once the spin doctors are done. It’s take away? “Journalism! It's a glamour industry.” Biden staffers have since apologized to the reporter.

The clip psychiatrist couch Part 2 from Harvey (1950) with Cecil Kellaway, James Stewart The last time I saw him he was with you. He's probably waiting for me down at Charlie's. Yes, that's it. He's down at Charlie's. Uh-huh. In that case, I'll go down and join him for a nightcap. Fortunately, Charlie's stays open rather late. Excuse me, Doctor. I want to say good-bye to some of my friends before I leave. Mr. Dowd, none of those people are your friends. But I want you to know that I am your friend. Thank you. And I'm yours. They underestimate you, as I did. This sister of yours is at the bottom of a conspiracy against you. She's trying to persuade me to lock you up. Today she had commitment papers drawn up. She has your power of attorney and the key to your safety box. And she brought you here! My sister did all that in one afternoon? That Veta certainly is a whirlwind, isn't she? Good heavens, man! Haven't you any righteous indignation? Oh, Doctor, l... Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be..." She always called me Elwood. "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh, so smart... or oh, so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you may quote me.

The clip mcdougal tells alicia off from The Paper (1994) with Glenn Close, Randy Quaid By the way, Bernie White's the name. Marion Sandusky. Why does that ring a bell? What do you want me to say? Good job. You struck a blow for journalistic integrity today? I can't do it. You abused your position to settle a personal score. It is what it is. Live with it. Henry was right. Double bourbon up. What do you mean? Dewars on the rocks, please. Henry was glib, that's all. Everything I used to hate. What does that even mean? Henry wouldn't have a newspaper to work on if I hadn't saved it. Henry doesn't have a newspaper to work on. Oh, please! I'm ODing on righteous indignation tonight. I know I know that name from someplace. Common name. No, it's not a common name. I gotta go to the john. We're not exactly the Washington Post, okay? No, we're not. We run stupid headlines because we think they're funny. We run maimings on the front page because we got good art. I spend three weeks bitching about my car because it sells papers. At least it's the truth. As far as I can remember... we never, ever knowingly got a story wrong, until tonight. That's what Henry meant. You got any smokes? What kind you want? Box is fine.
