Every reporter has been harassed at one point or another for doing their job, but rarely is it so comical as in this incident in Las Vegas when KTNV reporter Steve Ryan was doing the “man on the street” coverage of the death of Michael Jackson.

Apparently, there were still a few minutes of airwaves left that had not been filled with Michael Jackson stories, so they went out and sought drunks for their opinions.

What’s funny is not necessarily the drunk that ends up on video nor the way Ryan pushes him away, but the looks of shock on the faces of the anchors after Ryan slaps the drunk in the face.
