VP Biden asks for investigation into reporter's conduct

There are reports that Vice President Biden is asking a Senate official to investigate the conduct of reporter Jason Mattera from the conservative news organization, "Human Events," after a confrontational interview last week.

Mattera questioned Biden about his claim that rape and other crimes would rise if Republicans voted down the president's jobs bill. Biden countered, saying his statements were taken out of context.

Today on American Morning, Howard Kurtz, Washington bureau chief for Newsweek/Daily Beast, talks with Carol Costello about the confrontation and what it says about the interaction between journalists and politicians.
