I don't know...Sounds like he was pissed at the media present because they caused such a ruckus at his arrival.
Sounds like he was kind of pissed about not being able to just sit there like everyone else. He got up talked to the organizers, and then left. The media followed and then he issued statements to them telling them that they are "bad."
Sounds like all he wanted to do was to attend the event but his presence caused too much of a ruckus, so out of respect to everyone else, he left. But not until he talked to the organizers (probably asking if he should leave or not).
Sounds rather respectful if you ask me.
“I think it was very disrespectful," said Donna Graves, who was on the planning committee for the commemoration ceremony. "The intent of today was not to look at Howard Dean.
“The planning committee didn’t know he was coming as we invited a lot of people. It was very hectic and this is a day that is supposed to be about Martin Luther King.”
You know, they never say what "it" is. Was "it" Dean's actions, or the media's?
If it wasn't for lack of context there would be no news.
And sounds like I say "sounds like" too much.

Problem is that it was on the media's press schedule (which should NEVER have been on there if he really just "wanted to pay tribute to Dr. King"), and they didn't bother to contact the organizers of the event. He just showed up with a busload of people and can not have thought he wouldn't be the immediate center of attention.
It was grandstanding, and it failed miserably.
