As members of the media camp out for a third straight day at the end of tiny a cul-de-sac in Cerritos, many reporters were becoming blurry eyed hoping to be the first to snap a photo of one of the most famous figures on the planet, controversial Anti-Islamic Film Maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.
With a heat index well over 110 degrees expected for Saturday in parts of Southern California, Nakoula continues to be barricaded inside his two-story air-conditioned home with members of his family.
With Nakoula hidden inside the home, attorney Steve Seiden, provided a brief statement to the media on Friday afternoon, after he and another man met inside the Park Street home. Seiden, who would not reveal any specific details about his personal or professional details about his relationship with Nakoula, demanded that members of the media “leave them alone” saying his client and family “had become prisoners in their own home.”
As of 1 a.m., several television news trucks, vans, journalists, local bloggers, and newspaper reporters continued to munch on cold take out pizza and drinking cold bottles of water.
”No one is going anywhere until they decided to face the cameras,” one reporter from New York City told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper.
“This is the biggest story in the universe,” said another reporter who works for a local morning television news program.
