Spike Lee: "I Don't Do Fox News"

DENVER -- Best line of the far:

Director Spike Lee hit town early Sunday evening for a reception for black state lawmakers at trendy East Colfax Mexican restaurant Mezcal.

He immediately was engulfed in a horde of media, showing his true liberal political colors when one reporter, identifying himself as a correspondent for Fox News, asked Lee a question.

I suspect Lee wasn't the first person -- nor the last -- to tell Fox where they could put their microphone. If you hear of a disturbance a few blocks from the Pepsi Center this week, it will likely be Fox News trying to get into The Big Tent to shoot some footage. It won't be pretty...
