Breitbart.com employee, Human Events editor and self-styled “bad boy reporter” Jason Mattera thought that he was scoring the “ambush journalism” coup of his life when he sidled up to U2 frontman and rock star do-gooder Bono Vox.
Sadly, Mattera’s scoop was scuttled by the fact that the person he had mistaken for the Irish singer was actually a celebrity impersonator. In video of the confrontation, the would-be shock journalist peppered the baffled-looking “Bono” with questions, never seeming to notice or realize that the person in front of him not only wasn’t Bono and didn’t have an Irish accent, but also kind of looked more like recent photos of erstwhile Wham! singer George Michael.
Watch the awkward, hilarious video, which has been pulled from Breitbart.com, but which we are lucky enough to have embedded below:
Mattera wasn’t the only one taken in by “Bono,” as you can hear in the Media Matters clip of The Sean Hannity Show, below:
