Fox News’ Mike Tobin Shares Details Of ‘Unwanted Touching’ By Wisconsin Protesters

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Fox News reporter Mike Tobin continues to report from Wisconsin, the site of the “unwanted touching” he received yesterday from an angry protester upset with Fox News. Megyn Kelly asked Tobin for an update, as a more peaceful protester held up a “Fake News” sign over Tobin’s shoulder in the background.

Tobin reports on the dwindling amount of protesters remaining at the Capitol building and clarifies some details about his incident yesterday saying, “I got punched in the arm, it didn’t even leave a bruise. I don’t want to make too big a deal about it, but it did cross the line.” Tobin appeared frustrated that he’s been unable to get through most of his live shots without some form of heckling, yet now with a calmer scene, it looks as if the worst is behind him.
