This woman speaks directly to a CNN reporter today, and tells the unvarnished truth. This has needed saying for years. I recall reading that early in her broadcasting career, Oprah Winfrey was fired from a local TV station because she is an empathic person. She could not bring herself to stick a microphone in a victim’s face and ask how they felt.
The example below is a generic hypothetical, but I have heard similar questions way too many times. There is far too much of this type of “reporting” on the evening news:
“Ms. Jones, your husband and four kids just burned to death in the house fire. Could you tell us how you are feeling right now?”
This woman responded in the best possible way, and because it was a live feed, the audience got to see all of it, uncensored.
