That anchor on CNN, Alisyn Camerota, is just deepening this man's pain of his missing

son with her questions. Release him from the interview as you have now resorted to unrelated questions and that will help him a lot. To drag the interview out for television purposes is just cruel. I am in tears as I watch it. Prayers that they find his son, 24 year old Jody Coffman.

1. I've always hated the 24-hour networks' practice of dragging grieving family out so they "can tell

their stories." It's cheap, cruel and exploitative. I turn it off when I see it because I just can't participate in that.

3. It's sickening. CNN sucks so hard. And there's no reason for them to. It's not like being...

sensationalist garbage that Trump plays like a fiddle is helping their ratings. I think it would be awesome if left-leaning billionaires like Bezos bought some media outlets, relinquished any kind of editorial control, and basically told them to just do their fucking job and not worry about profit (like he's done with WaPo). That's a better solution than a government-sponsored network at this point. I had to be up at about 03:30 this morning and woke up to the horrible shooting in California. And sure enough there they were with their cameras in the faces of a bunch of traumatized people who'd just seen friends gunned down.

4. You can take a Camerota out of Fox, but you can't...

I'd love to read professional psychological profiles of those who use their considerable talents to spread dangerous and destructive lies on Fox, but we don't need them to identify extremely bad character by her actions.

5. She did that before with the family of a woman who died

in the wildfires in California. This woman had her grandkids with her too. Alison kept the woman's brother and his wife on the air as he just fell apart. It was horrible to watch.

6. People do not have to do the interviews, if they are asked


When my neighbors home blew up from a gas explosion several years ago, the neighborhood went to help out with 1st responder's and watch them put out the blaze. I was approached for an on-air interview by a local news outlet. I declined. And that was that.

8. It's ever so, idiot reporters pressing people at times of crisis, "How do you feel?"
