Media mogul Steve Forbes said he was assaulted by angry protesters Wednesday night in New York City at a conservative book launch party. Forbes, the 75-year-old CEO of Forbes Media, was in attendance at an event for the launch of a new book written by conservative authors Bethany Mandel and Karol Markowicz. He said protesters disrupted the event by throwing drinks at him and toppling a book display. "Suddenly I heard screaming, had books thrown at me, and I was soaking wet," Mandel told the outlet.
