PR guy rubs KGO-TV crew the wrong way, literally
A PR man for San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital repeated patted Dan Noyes with a hand as the KGO reporter attempted to interview Hospital Director Mivic Hirose about irregularities with the Patient Gift Fund. The video shows what PR man Marc Slavin did — he not only repeatedly touched Noyes but also his female photographer. Here's Noyes' story. After the incident, Slavin's boss, Public Health Director Mitch Katz, admitted Slavin's behavior was "unprofessional." Katz wouldn't say if Slavin would be disciplined or whether he continues to work for the hospital, calling it a personnel issue.
