Did anyone else hear on Democracy Now! about the dust up with their cameraman & reporter?

I only heard this about 20 minutes ago. Long story short: Sheldon Adelson's daughter bumped a DN reporter trying to ask questions to Sheldon Adelson at the convention. She then proceeded to grab a camera from the DN photographer, and then (according to the storyteller) tried to take the camera into the suite at the convention center, but dropped it (it's unclear if this was intentional). The reporter went on to say that he tried to get out his Droid to photograph what was going on, but one of Adelson's entourage grabbed his hand and would not let go. The reporter also said that Karl Rove was with Adelson during the incident.

Sorry -- don't have a link.

I invite corrections from any DUers. I may have missed or misunderstood some aspect of the story -- as I said, I was listening in my car.
