Brawl Transpires Between FOX News & Huffington Post Reporters At White House Correspondents Dinner Afterparty

Witnesses claim that Grim recounted how Watters set up an on-camera confrontation of now-Huffington Post colleague Amanda Terkel when he worked for the “O’Reilly Factor.” Wanting to show him how it feels, Grim allegedly began filming him with his camera phone, when Watters snatched the device from him. Aside from an upturned table and some ruffled guests, no real damage was done.
