Just Another Example Of CNN Being Asleep At The Broadcast Wheel

Meet Matt Reis. His father-in-law was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings, and he gave a borderline-teary interview to CNN last night.


However, during that interview, and because of a cable-news fixation on overloading your minds with information on a steady stream, and thanks to a flashing red light behind him — blaring your eyes the entire time — it was possible, within mere seconds, to get this scare-screengrab.


I shudder to think how easy it would have been for someone just tuning in at that second to presume that Reis had a backpack and mission to maim.
