WorldNetDaily has the details:

KPRC News Director Skip Valet told WND the cameraman’s flying of the Mexican flag broke station rules.

“It violates our policy, because we’re always objective observers of these situations,” Valet told WND. “We don’t take sides in news stories; we cover them. That policy was clearly violated.”

The cameraman has been disciplined, Valet said, but he could not disclose details, because it’s a personnel matter.

Valet said the employee is a legal U.S. citizen who has been with the station for about five years. He went to cover the event by himself, the news director said, with the exception of an intern.

“We don’t take sides in news stories; we cover them.”

That’s news to him! Heck, going by the way this cameraman’s peers cover news items like the War on Terror, he was just following their example.

Hot Air reader, Bryan filmed the cameraman:

I was video taping with my anti illegal alien group at a protest on Saturday. Our Houston NBC affiliate was at the protest to do a story. The following picture below is a screen grab from the event. The NBC cameraman had a Mexican flag attached to his camera! This is making headlines on some forums here in Houston, and was talked about quite a bit this morning on both Houston and Dallas talk radio channels. Fair and balanced, unbiased and non partisan, right? Ha! The pro illegal alien supporting side no doubt got a kick out of seeing the NBC cameraman and reporter on their side!

Meanwhile, in Chicago today…you must see this unbelievable video from Freedom Folks:
