A CNN reporter was harshly criticized for her interview with a Hurricane Harvey evacuee, but was it warranted? CNN reporter Rosa Flores' interview quickly took a turn for the worse when a woman, who began the interview very calmly, became belligerent on live television in the latter part of the interview.
The woman, identified only as Danielle, escaped from her flooded home after waiting 36 hours for help to arrive and arrived at the shelter where CNN and other media organizations were covering the story.
Today on "Pat and Stu" the guys examined the woman's reaction during the interview and agreed that if she didn't want to be interviewed, she didn't have to agree to it in the first place.
"I don't think it's the journalist's fault at all, first of all," said Stu Burguiere.
"It's not. She could've not talked to her," added Pat Gray. "Here's how that works: Before the camera comes on and the live shot happens, they say, 'Hey, can we talk to you about what's going on?' You either say, 'yes' or 'no.' If you say yes, they'll interview you. If you say no, they won't. It's just that easy."
