Moron Steals FOX Mic -- Leaves iPhone

6/29/2007 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comApparently, the hottest item outside the Apple store in New York City -- is a FOX News Channel Microphone!

FOX correspondent Laura Ingle was reporting live outside the store this morning, in front of a long line of nerds who have been waiting outside since Monday to be the first to get an iPhone. (Hello? Get a life. It's a PHONE.) In the middle of her interview with Newsweek's Steven Levy, some guy walked up behind Ingle and grabbed her microphone.

The man was tackled within seconds by a burly FOX cameraman. But duh, with iPhones going going for as much as $1200 on eBay -- here's our question: Why didn't the idiot go for the phone??

Everyone needs to relax for goodness sakes! It's a freakin phone. This idiot went for the 'five finger discount' and missed it. You know it's sad that this many folks stand in line for a cell phone, but won't stand in line to give blood to save a life.. makes me wonder. value technology/material things more than possibly saving a life, maybe?

Obviously the prankster was not a Fox Noise Channel fan. Not a moron. Quite smart.

The iphone has no keypad!! How do you text message? It also doesn't do email, and the connection speed is slow. Do these bafoons even know what they are buying?

It's somewhat hysterical that you people are making fun of other people for standing in line to buy a "phone" when you yourselves will stand for hours hoping to get a glimpse of some "celebrity". A phone is a lot more useful than a blurry picture of Paris Hilton's panties.

To #6-Janet: You wrote: "The prankster was not a Fox fan...quite smart."

Dear Janet:
It's not "smart" to interfere, obstruct and steal a microfone in the middle of an on air interview. Even if he hates Fox News he has no right to do what he did. He is a bully, who probably want only his ideas to prevail. That si facism. We live in a democracy and we have free press, which means, we honor different points of view. Is that to hard to understand?

Hope he goes to jail. Congratulations to the cameraman to stop this jerk!

The person who called Iphone buyers "buffons" earlier is an idiot. I dont plan to get one but the phone does do email and text messaging, The keypad comes up on the screen when its time to type. It's a touchscreen keypad. Do actually believe that Apple would make a 600 dollar phone that doesn't do text messaging or email?? I dont think its worth almost a thousand dollars but everyone has the right to spend their money on what they want.
