CNN gets scorched when asking flood victim how they feel!


 Here we go. “How do you feel” question doesn’t go so well for this flood victim. Here is the blurb:
Houston flood victim scorches CNN reporter for her coverage in raw exchange. A Houston, Texas, woman who was one among thousands seeking refuge from Hurricane Harvey had harsh words for a CNN crew broadcasting live from the area to interview displaced residents arriving at the shelter.

    These reporters are looking to take advantage of these victims for ratings and they are neglecting the pain these people are going through. To them they are not real people but stories to be exploited, I am so glad they got called out on this!

    I will say that a black KHOU reporter at the convention center shelter was absolutely pitch perfect. No stupid questions and no dumb platitudes. She also was doing everything she could to help people. She spoke to a woman who was separated from her 8 year old daughter. The reporter pleaded for anyone who had information to call and even gave out her own phone number. Even the anchors in the studio were surprised.

    Okay – doing my due diligence the reporter is Sherry Williams and on her Facecrap page it says they found the little girl.

    I think I’d be upset too if I was so damned stupid to wait until the flood water as up to my ass before I decided to take some action (beyond answering the phone) that might save my life and that of my children. As Linda said, shades of Katrina in New Orleans. Now what most people seem not to understand is this: you can set your watch by the timing of floods in Houston; this has been going on for years. After all these years, it would not seem too difficult for a responsible city/county government to coordinate, in conjunction with the State of Texas and federal officials, improvements to woefully inadequate infrastructure. We could begin by realizing that it was federal engineers who designed Houston highways (funded by the federal government) so that almost all of these in the downtown area are in low-lying flood zones. Add to this, Houston/Harris County have had controlling Democratic governments for the past 35 years. Final note: Houston is America’s fourth largest city … so evacuation plans wouldn’t be easy … but you know, if we can send people to the moon and back, we ought to be able to figure out how to solve this annual problem.

      People are conditioned to being in a state of denial. Reality is shaped not on relevant information but by “wishing.” Here is SW Florida I keep my eye always on what churning in the oceans… I will be long gone I can assure you. 22 feet above sea level doesn’t give a lot of options.

        Linda… I realize there are those who are stuck due to financial reasons. But the majority could make it out….either to relatives or have the resources to stay elsewhere. This leaves the possibility of moving those stuck, moved in a reasonable manner to higher ground by bus or whatever.

      I can tell you, the majority of thought is not denial..or stupidity, being a survivor of Katrina and a devastating EF 5 tornado in 2011, it is matter of economics . Most of us folk live paycheck to paycheck…it took what was left to move, we sold what was left and came north. We spent our lives in the south, and it was hearbreaking…just being truthful…not that I’m hollering or trying to be rude. Needless to say, having Faith is a big part of our lives…maybe denial does play a part…I’m sure it does. But you know, there isn’t one place on this God’s green Earth that is safe from natural disasters. As for politics, my husband is a retired Federal National Disaster chaplain, and let me tell you, politics plays a part…however, most folks will tell you to yourface, just like that woman did…they will tell you to knock the crap out, all a person wants is warm clothes, a meal and to feel safe. Politics will always get in the way. That is a sad truth…

    The frustration in the mother’s voice started with the Houston mayor who underestimated Harvey which left his townspeople stranded etc

    Reporters today have no conception of what journalism or investigative reporting means. They spend their days reading cue cards and when it comes time to go into the field or do an interview – they’re lost.

      They have no educational background to come up with any sort of inquiry. They are devoid of a historical context for any interview. Dumbing down one more way. Now we need these twenty somethings as our reporters.

      Makes one wonder, why isn’t CNN interviewing city and county officials, who have done nothing in the past 35 years to fix continual flooding problems.

        Ooh Ooh I know the answer Mustang! Cuz they’re democrats? And besides, it was Donald trump and not them who had the martians swoop down at night without running lights and redirect the storm to circle over Houston.

        @ Peter … yeah, and do you still remember the genius who blamed Bush for Katrina? He claimed the White House had a hurricane generating machine. I wonder if one day we’ll be able to see that machine sitting off in a corner of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Just between you and me, I’d love to get my hands on one; we could clean up places like Detroit in less than 48 hours.

    It’s about f_____g time someone experiencing tragic circumstances who has just been asked by one of these mo mo’s who just came from a hot meal, shower and clean clothes . “how do you feel” or “what’s going through your mind right now?” puts the asshole in his/her place. For years I for one hves turned off many a news program incensed by the insensitivity of the reporter and scratching my head as to why a victim would give an interview.
    We should only be surprised the reporter didn’t ask the woman how she felt about President Trump sending this powerful storm to Houston.

    I read somewhere that the women and her family survived Katrina and they ended up in Houston, and she had had enough of the reporters in her face. At least FOX news reporters ask before and they respect the folks.
