Shame on NBC and Christin Cooper

Shame on NBC and Christin Cooper, the interviewer who couldn't take her own question's answer at face value.

No, she had to ask basically the same thing three times until she got what she wanted-tears. She made Bode Miller cry about the death of his brother.

And shame on NBC for playing back the video that way in prime time.

And double shame on NBC for the statement released about the post-race interview afterward, once social media started to break bad on them.

The minute I was watching it unfold on TV Sunday night both Sandy and I were yelling at the TV to stop it!
Bode was asked about losing his brother. Asked and answered. Then drilled at him a second time and answered. Then a third reference as the camera inches closer and closer to Bode's eyes in the hopes of getting great TV....tears.

You got what you wanted NBC. Hope you're real proud.

And then after all the backlash from viewers about the interview, the network has the audacity to attempt to explain the attack on the man by saying it was needed to get his emotional answer. He gave that after you asked the first time you idiots. Don't lie to us. We're not stupid. You wanted to see him cry. You got what you wanted. Shame on you.
