After reading Megan Carpentier’s Raw Story article about our experience in the White House Rose Garden standing next to Daily Caller heckler Neil Munro, we decided to go back and listen to the audio we were recording on our iPhone of the event, and compare it to other news outlets’ audio.
Shockingly, it’s cleaner than anything else we’ve found online — clearer than the White House’s audio or even NPR’s (because, of course, their microphones were trained at President Obama and we happened to be next to Munro).
If you want to hear what Munro actually said (with his, ahem, immigrant Irish accent), take a listen. It’s in three chunks, with brief silences between. The first segment is when Munro first jumps in, the second is when Obama answers him (and Munro tries to interrupt again), and the third is right after the president finishes his remarks and Munro yells out again.
The audio can be downloaded at soundcloud. If you use it, please credit “Steven Thrasher, Village Voice.”
