  •  So blame the headline writers. (0+ / 0-)

    They often write inaccurate headlines.  You're correct that what happened wasn't heckling, and that term should not have been used by anyone who viewed the video or read the entire writeup of the meeting.  However no one should be able to claim that the outbursts were answering the father's question, either.  That's at least as inaccurate as "heckling."

    •  No one said they DID (0+ / 0-)

      answer a question except for the diarist. However thanks to a deceptive edit, the lazy media (and their blind followers here) have however taken up the meme of heckling.

    •  What they did was worse than heckling. (0+ / 0-)

      That's mindless interference. Personal attack without much reason.

      This is far worse.
