Which Reporter Wanted to Throw Her Shoe at the Pope?

I was listening to the press pool’s open microphone as Pope Francis entered the House of Representatives’ Chamber. Standing behind the Pope was an army of reporters and their cameras and open microphones.

I had my studio headphones on listening to the chatter of the reporters when suddenly, distinctly, I heard a reporter say she wanted to take off her shoe and throw it. Seriously.

Listen for yourself.

Maybe, to be charitable, her feet were hurting. But it was definitely caught on tape and aired live on CNN right after Wolf Blitzer tuned in for live coverage.
