A local NBC reporter seemed caught unaware Wednesday at a May Day rally in New York City when asked if she planned to cover the communist hammer and sickle flags some demonstrators were carrying.

“I haven’t seen any of those…” reporter Ida Siegel told the male videographer who confronted her.

“You haven’t seen any of those?” the videographer asked.

“No, I haven’t — what are they, what do they represent?” Seigel replied.

“The hammer and sickle, you don’t know what that represents?” he pressed.

Siegel at that point asked which group the videographer was with.

“I’m not with any group, I’m just curious as a major media company if you’re going to show in the story you do about this the hammer and sickle flags,” he said.
