NBC Reporter: EPIC CRUDE [Vanity]

Unbelievable !!! Female NBC Reporter interviewing Bode Miller after his Super G Bronze Medal asked a question concerning the passing of Bode's brother. That was a fair question to ask.

Then, she asked a second question about his brother. Fair? Questionably ...

But, like a pit bull attacking a ham bone - she couldn't let go. HAD to ask two more questions concerning the brother ...

It left Bode in tears ...

Way to go NBC - Proud of yourselves ???

NBC is certainly the most reprehensible of the MSM pack.

I saw that and it was about as crude and tasteless as I have seen.

I found several articles but not yet a video.

Still... yeah. She was after the drama and she didn’t quit till she got it.

What makes that interview even worse is that it was on tape delay, so NBC had all day to edit it before they showed it in prime time and chose not to!! They think it was a good idea to show that! They are a disgrace! Is anyone surprised? Not me!!
Of course, they would never badger Obama with questions like that idiot reporter did!

I saw that a couple hours ago...

I was cussing a blue streak for 20 minutes...

Anything for a camera shot...and it's not the first time they have done this to Bode and other athletes.

I didn’t see it, but others seem to agree with you about Christine Cooper.

I saw it tonight on TV. I wanted to get out of my chair and shove her mike where the sun don’t shine...especially after the second time she purposely tried to get him to break down on camera. NBC should fire her ass...

Good point. The producer of the show ought to be fired right along with her. I'm still PO'ed.

Well, she did try to comfort him. She put her hand on his shoulder.

Reporters are typically insensitive. All they care is that they get a story. If they get a display of emotion, all the better — for their ratings.

I am watching the Olympics as a distraction tonight and yep, I saw that awful ‘interview’. Shameful, what a heartless pos. All media makes me furious these days.

“...they would never badger Obama with questions like that...”

Correct, even if he skinned and ate puppies & kitties on the white house lawn.

However, let me take this opportunity to pass on this great Obama diss I heard tonight.

We watch the Showtime show “Shameless” which really lives up to its name. It is the story of a hopeless drunken man (Irish American, of course, of Chicago, fwiw) and his hapless family.

It’s extremely well done, with William Macy in the performance of a lifetime as Frank Gallagher, but it’s just brutal and filled with degeneracy of all kinds and just super awful. Not for many Freepers, I reckon, so fair warning if anyone is inspired to check it out.

But tonight there was a bit of a conversation between 2 of the characters, a man and woman who are about to have several children. He is white and she is black and he’s reassuring her that their children will be OK. He says: they’ll be fine, they’ll play for the Bulls and one will grow up to be president.

She says: President of the United States?!?

And he says: sure, why not, we already elected a half black half white Muslim who’s got the name of a dictator.

I had to give hubby a high five and “Shameless” a round of applause for that one!

[dialogue is paraphrased as indicated and he did say a *something* dictator, but I didn’t catch that one word, understandably as I was already in shock!]

” - - - Female NBC Reporter - - - “

Hmmmmmmm - - - - - ?

What is in a name? What does it mean? What does it stand for?

Lemme see now, - - - with a long history to call on, NBC and MSNBC both claim to be news companies.

Sooooooo, - - - maybe NBC stands for “National Bitch Correspondents,” and MSNBC stands for “More Socialist National Bitch Correspondents?”

If the shoe fits - - - - .

NBC SUCKS.

That kristen cooper should be fired. NBC owes Bode an apology for that classless, tasteless grilling until he fell to the floor sobbing.

Also, who is the decision maker that chose to AIR that footage??

Disgusting.

Twitter is going nuts right now over it from the recent showing on the west coast.

reporters on this level are all sharks.
Local reporters are better because they know if they piss off people in their city they might as well pack their bags and get ready to farm reports on WMON( Middle Of Nowhere).

Brother is “Chilly” [nickname of Chelone] Miller - an accomplished snowboarder in his own right. Had an off-road vehicle accident some years ago, was in a coma for a while. Never the same snowboarder after that - suffered random seizures from time to time since the accident. Died from his last seizure about a year ago.
