CNN messes up in Texas

You and your child are stranded in floodwaters for several days and manage to survive.  You are tired, cold, and hungry, oh, and traumatized.  So you get off the bus and BOOM!, a CNN reporter shoves a microphone right in your face.  How do you think this ended?

This video shows the true force of Mother Nature:

Meanwhile, I-10 at Jefferson County line:

But one dog was saved:

while a Hawk decided to chill in a cab:

Well, KellyAnne, you should watch BBCAmerica or MSNBC if you don't want to see victims interviews. They don't do as many. Or watch the 30 minute to 1 hour news shows. Both CNN and FOX have made their 24/7 popularity 0n interviewing ordinary people in stressful situations and ordinary people who have nothing relevant to contribute to news subject other than their bias.
If people didn't watch and want to rubberneck disasters and tragedies, maybe they'd go off the air.
I'm not surprised it didn't occur to KellyAnne that those with relatives and friends in Houston might be glad to see that the person they are worried about has been rescued.
Since reporters showing up at the door when times are bad is our reality, all of us should learn to say, I don't want to be on television and of course, " no comment".
And,maybe, using a tragedy for political fodder isn't exactly civilized either.

"ordinary people who have nothing relevant to contribute to news subject other than their bias. "

So, a distraught person who has just survived having his/her house completely destroyed is showing "their bias"?

Got it.

Cnn reporter was empathetic and willing to stop.

Overblown by trumpers hate for all cnn

CNN is useless.

Don't care for CNN but come on. All the outlets do this and the fact is that America wants to see what is going on. Interviews, especially in stressful situations, can help bring resources and help to the victims. So it is a double edged sword. No story here.

I agree with 8:31.

The women agreed to an interview and that microphone in her face.

Then she got emotional.

That's not the reporter's fault when someone agrees to be on camera, but the reporter handled it as best she could.

I think this video would have gotten more clicks if someone had overdubbed Russian music in the background.

CNN asked if they could interview her. It is not their fault she decided she did not want to be interviewed anymore.

I live for the day when some displaced person yucks it up and satires the reports telling them that today is the best day of their life

I still kinda like the floating fire ants island picture & the the discussion if the ants float on top of dead ant or how the physic of water surface tension comes into play.

OH Smack, wrong person, wrong time, wrong train of thought by reporter. In other words CNN-MSNBC-FOX-NBC-CBS-ABC does not matter they don't give a damn about anything but first on story or first to create a story and create rating for the rate card that creates the bottom line. Always remember its follow the money, honey.

Limbaugh's montage today of all the TV Newsers dogging Trump for lacking empathy was classic! They'll be the first ones cleansed.

Never ask a question that you don't know the answer to......or be prepared. Crisis news -- what journalism majors today live off of, since it requires nothing but microphones and emotions. Ever googled the writers of articles in the NYT or WaPo or some other rag??? They're about 34 and have an internship behind them, maybe some college newspaper staff writing, but they're a great social justice warrior and suddenly an expert. God help us!

Nevermind the interview, can we talk about that hawk?! He probably thought driving was a safer alternative than flying during a hurricane...

Imagine how pissed that womman's going to be when she finds out this is nothing more than weather manipulation evidenced by strong burst of HAARP radiation before landfall...identical to Katrina

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
