NBC reporter almost tarred and feathered at DEFCON

It appears that there are always some people which need to learn it the hard way.

This was the case for NBC dateline reporter Michelle Madigan trying to undercover filming the DEFCON 15 conference in Las Vegas without permission, and without a press badge. When she was told (by staff/also undercover hackers) that she would need a press badge and is not allowed to enter certain areas for “hidden” filming she just ignored the warning, thus getting more attention than she could have wanted. Suddenly a conference speaker introduced the game “Find the undercover reporter”, which lead to big bawl and an escort to her car, with lots of embarrassing comments.

Meanwhile her MySpace account is removed as it was flooded with angry comments.

See Michelle, such stupid things can ruin your cyber social life.
