Just before 1 p.m. central time, reporter Rosa Flores approached a woman named Danielle and her young daughter who had just arrived at a shelter in the Houston area.
When Flores asked the woman about how she protected her daughter during the storm that is when she said, “Yeah, that’s a lot of shit. But y’all trying to interview people during their worst times. Like, that’s not the smartest thing to do.”
At that point, CNN cut away from the interview, either due to the uncensored profanity or because there was just nothing more for the reporter to say. “It sounds like you've got a very upset family there,” anchor Jim Acosta said back in the studio.
Should reporters cover people in shelters who have just lost everything?
