This is now the pinnacle of network journalism in the United States
Heard a few minutes ago on CBS This Morning:

"What was it like, standing in the schoolyard, looking for your son's face?"

This was, mercifully, at least said to a mom whose son did survive the shootings. But, making someone cry on camera by asking emotionally manipulative questions to which every human being over the age of six knows the answer must be way more profitable than practicing actual journalism.

Sure is easier, I guess.

Are we, as Americans, ever going to stand up and say to media, "Do the damn job for which America gives you First Amendment protection?"
