Subway murder

Today Show guilty of poor conduct

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
The Today Show interviewed the photographer who took a picture of the man killed on the NYC subway tracks but in a way that causes one wonder if they aren't more guilty than anyone of poor conduct.
To interrogate the photographer and to even quote some goofy poll they took is shameful. How bad has the TV news media become? To propose that a man over a hundred feet away could out run the subway, which appears even closer, to pull the victim to safety is idiotic. Matt Lauer's conduct during the interview was abrasive, condescending, and certainly not what one would expect from a seasoned newscaster. The Today Show should have done at least minimal investigation of the facts before such accusations.
