CPAC Gone Wild: Fox News' Steve Moore Kisses Media Matters


Surrounded by their own kind, CPAC attendees let loose. Enter Steve Moore -- Wall Street Journal writer and Fox News contributor. Despite knowing he was on film, Moore kissed the cheek of a Media Matters employee who had just introduced herself.

The Media Matters employee and her coworker asked Moore about recent controversies regarding GOProud, Lila Rose, and Glenn Beck, while disguised as conservative fans. Then Moore asked one of the Media Matters employees where she went to college, and she responded that she went to UCLA. Moore expressed surprise that she went to a "hard school to get into," and, unprompted, said, "and you're not even Asian."

MEDIA MATTERS 1: Nice to meet you.
STEVEN MOORE: I'm Steve Moore.
MM1: Steve Moore. Okay.
MM1: I'm from California originally.

[Steven Moore puts his arm around Media Matters 1 and leans in to kiss her on the cheek]

MM2: Yeah.
