MADISON, Wisc. -- In my wrap of Gov. Walker's Wednesday press conference, the one with all the awkwardness about the prank call, I mentioned how after Walker left a Democratic representative grabbed the podium and started addressing reporters. I mentioned how he was immediately drowned out because Walker staff opened the doors to let in the noise of screaming protesters.
Here's the video I took of the scene. It's a bit shaky at the start, as a reporter tries to find out why the doors won't be closed, and gets no answer. It moves to a quick shot of the briefing room, to illustrate just how inaudible Rep. Brett Hulsey was (he's in the orange shirt). It then moves outside, where the reporter tries to talk down protesters who don't want to shut up.
