Media Disconnect from Texas Reality

A distraught Houston mother tore into a CNN reporter during a live interview — blasting the woman for putting a microphone in her face just moments after she arrived at a shelter with her two young children.
"Y’all trying to interview people during their worst times. Like, that’s not the smartest thing to do,” the shaken up parent, identified only as Danielle, told reporter Rosa Flores.

"People are really breaking down and y’all sitting here with cameras and microphones trying to ask us what the f–k is wrong with us,” she seethed. "And you really trying to understand with the microphone still in my face! With me shivering cold, with my kids wet! And you’re still putting a microphone in my face!”

The interview happened a little before 1 p.m. central time at a shelter in Houston. Flores appeared to approach the woman at random just after she arrived there with her kids.
"We was waiting for the police for like 36 hours and they never came,” the mother said. "We did the white flags and everything — and nobody came.”

END OF QUOTE

This line of questioning isn't that far removed from the sick joke - but one tempered by over one hundred years of time to heal - that I heard as a child. "Besides that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play (at Ford's Theater)?"
