Verstunkener Reporters

Are reporters just dumb? Many a time we've seen a reporter shove a microphone in someone's face and ask "How do you feel?" while the blood of a loved one is still oozing over the sidewalk at a crime scene or their house is four feet under water. Don't you wish the person would smack the reporter across the face? The other unnerving thing that reporters do is ask questions from a predetermined list. The guest has just said that he or she thinks that a massive earthquake will destroy the city of San Francisco tomorrow morning at 8 AM and the reporter asks where the earthquake will occur. I've yet to see a guest say, "Haven't you been paying attention?" Don't you wish someone would?
