I just watched your Thursday 6PM report on Brian Berger and was simply amazed by the conduct of the reporter who I believe was Cliff Pyron. I am not a Brian Berger fan, but at least he acted in a polite and courteous manner in answering the questions posed to him. The same cannot be said of Mr. Pyron's actions! First I do not think it was proper to go to County Commissioners meeting to interview someone about a personal matter. Mr Pyron seemed to lose it when Mr. Berger said he was owed an apology for the story that was reported about the incident at his home. For Mr. Pyron to say things like "are you calling me a liar", "why don't you man up" (several times), "you've always been a huge distraction this week" (which doesn't even make sense) and "you are the story this week (really?) is just beyond belief. How unprofessional and rude can you be in an attempt to getting a story? I think this reporter owes Mr. Berger and the whole WWAY TV3 viewing audience an apology on the air for his actions. WWAY should also reconsider whether Mr. Pyron is an asset or a liability if this is way he handles himself when someone questions a news story.
