Rossi gets upset when a new female reporter comes in and is given the story about a possibly corrupt politician that he had unsuccessfully been investigating.
Did You Know?
She told him. She tipped him off about what was gonna come out. She is helping him beat us to the punch.
Why do you think something like that?
Because how else would he find out?
He would find out from somebody he knew in the D.A.'s Office, in the County Department of Health, in the Mayor's Office, in the Attorney General's Office, I'm running out of fingers, Rossi!
