Okay, we get it. When big disaster happens, TV is on the scene trying to get that one viral shot that will knock their ratings out of the park. But sometimes it comes at a cost to those being interviewed.
Take, for instance, Danielle, who was chosen by CNN to be part of an interview about Hurricane Harvey and her journey to the shelter. She seems like she's about to do a raw, emotional interview but then the twist.
The reporter, Rosa Flores, begins asking how Danielle was rescued. She answered honestly, saying she was waiting for rescue from police, but made the trek to a gas station in hopes of rescue.
Then she brought the kids into it. She asked Danielle about saving her kids and was about to ask how that made her feel, then she went for it.
Y’all trying to interview people during their worst times. Like, that’s not the smartest thing to do," she says, shaken.
"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 continued, while the cameraman still filmed. "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!"
