A "mystery man" with press credentials gave the middle finger to hundreds of thousands of Fox News viewers on Monday. Former General and presidential candidate Wesley Clark was being interviewed by pundit Shepard Smith at Boca's Lynn University.
At about 2 p.m., Clark was answering questions from Smith about that evening's presidential debate when a man with a beard moseyed into the camera's view, and threw a middle finger up for all to see. But it wasn't a straight-up bird drop. The man pretended to scratch his facial hair with his middle finger.
Then, as mysteriously as he arrived... he vanished into the crowd.
Media outlets have been feverishly searching for the Bird-Flipping Man. Who is he? Where did he come from?

He is, of course, Jake Katel, videographer for the Miami New Times and New Times Broward-Palm Beach.More »
