Journalist's shoe seen 'round the world

You'd have to be living under a rock to not have already seen this:

I mean, wow. This trumps the "don't tase me, bro" moment. Clearly, no shoe will ever be as famous as the size 10 that narrowly missed our lame-duck president. And it's clear this "journalist," at the Bush-Iraqi prime minister's press conference, let go of all journalistic professionalism and common sense to make his point.

Question: at what point should you decide not to "cover" something if you cannot resist the urge to throw things at the people behind the podium?
