    Not sure if anyone saw this, but it was on my Facebook this morning. You can say what you like about Anderson Cooper or CNN's handling of some stories, but I think he's right on the money here.

    As for the reporter who asked him for the photo, who does that? I can understand how some people may be fan boys around a celebrity, but if you're covering the story, man up and act like you've been there before and belong there. I think that's even more the case when you're dealing with a tragic event like this one.

    Edit: As per second link that Huggy shared in the thread about the shooting itself, Sun severed its connections with the reporter.
