Working for NY1 Is Extremely Hazardous

A woman draped in a sheet climbed into an NY1 news van and allegedly attacked Vivian Lee as the veteran reporter covered a story in Cobble Hill Friday morning. The woman, who wore the white sheet over a T-shirt, sweatpants and green flip-flops, went inside the truck about 7 a.m. and began using Lee’s makeup and snacking on food, Lee and a witness said. When Lee told her to leave, the woman allegedly punched the reporter in the neck.

This happens to Roger Clark like every day though. (Relatedly, the story she was covering, of the church lightning strike killing a fellow at Kane and Clinton, is TERRIBLE and upsetting.)
