Media behavior unacceptable

To members of the media present at Friday morning’s Oso briefing: Your behavior was disrespectful, rude and lacked the professionalism expected of you in times such as these! The shout outs to Travis Hots (who appears physically and emotionally exhausted) after he had repeatedly answered the question regarding the number of victims and names was shocking! He clearly defined the process, yet the reporters seem to have felt if they continue to ask the question, they will get a different answer! This behavior is unacceptable in light of the good work so many are doing at such a difficult and tragic time!
