A Fox News producer got more than he bargained for this week when he confronted Ed Asner, the 83-year-old actor best known for his role as Lou Grant on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” on the street in New York’s theater district. Rather than fighting back, Asner asked if he could could urinate on the man.
Asner's request, while certainly bizarre, wasn't made entirely out of context. The reason for the confrontation, as Sean Hannity explained on his show, was a video Asner narrated on behalf of the California Federation of Teachers. Without getting too graphic, let’s just say the original version of the video rather colorfully illustrated the theory of trickle-down economics.
Hannity labeled it a “disgusting hit piece” and sent one of his producers – who was not identified in the segment – to confront the “radical left-wing Hollywood actor.”
