AFL-CIO chief economist swears at Neil Cavuto during TV interview
The American labor movement's chief economics spokesman ran into a tough interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox News. Instead of facts, figures, and reason, he offered profanity. When pressed about his support for the triollion dollar stimulus bill that has produced no net job growth, instead of responding with facts and figures, Ron Blackwell resorted to profanity, calling the host an "a**hole."
Just days after General McChrystal lost his job for conversations which took place over drinks in Paris, the remarkable public breakdown of a supposed expert stands as dramatic evidence of the low standards to which the labor movement has sunk. I doubt very much there will be any professional consequences at all to this breakdown.
The incident occurs about 45 seconds into the clip below:
