Maybe news crews could get the real news and get it confirmed instead of just trying to scrap together a story. They rely too much on live interviews and footage, when they could record in advance and not worry about Howard Stern goons.
I agree that news crews should ensure that a source is reliable but that just is just disgusting.
I really don't understand how some of these people were brought up. Who were their parents? Did they just not care or teach their children anything? This guy also sounded like a grown man, acting like a child.
Although I would never pull a prank like this, I think much of the news businesss is garbage and sensationalism. The reporters thrive on the worst stories they can find, and seem to get excited about telling us who died or was killed, or if britanny slept with her Father. It is nowhere near indicative of society at large.... That being said......
