A mother -- visibly upset by all she and her family have endured during Hurricane Harvey -- goes on an obscenity-laced tirade on a CNN reporter who was interviewing her.

Before you jump all over the media and side with this woman, asserting that this was irresponsible, exploitative journalism, take a moment to consider this:  It is abundantly clear that the woman agreed to be interviewed, based on the fact that she was standing right next to the reporter, on camera, obviously waiting for the reporter to turn to her and begin asking questions. She was not ambushed by the media during her time of crisis.

I do, however, take issue with her choice to use such blatant profanity in the presence of her young daughter.
