I was flipping channels tonight and I saw a bit of the NBC Nightly News. Brian Williams was in Haiti reporting on the earthquake.
He said something along the lines of, "It's not too often anyone can muster a smile around here, let alone a little boy who just lost his home."
It showed the small boy smiling for the camera, hopefully oblivious to all that he'd lost. Then Brian Williams says to the boy's adult companion, "Ask him what happened to his home."
WTH? The child was experiencing a moment of joy, and Williams had to take that away. If you make the boy cry on camera, does that make for a better story? Possibly a journalism award? Brian Williams ought to be ashamed of himself.
