Media on the ground in Texas received a harsh rebuke from a mother at a shelter in Texas live on air.
A CNN reporter approached the woman, who had apparently just arrived and was still wet and shivering, and began peppering her with questions as she held a child close to her side.
The Texan woman had her fill of being asked how she’s doing fairly quickly and gave the reporter and fill-in host on the show Wolf, Jim Acosta.

Clearly upset, the woman responded to the reporter’s question of how difficult it’s been to care for her children during the hurricane and flooding.
“I walked through four feet of water to get [the children] food on the first day.
Yeah, that’s a lot of s***.
But, y’all are sitting here. Y’all are trying to interview people that are in their worst times. That’s not the smartest thing to do.
People are really breaking down and y’all are sitting here with cameras and microphones trying to ask us what the f*** is wrong with us.
And you’re really trying to understand with the microphone still in my face?
With me shivering cold and my kids soaking wet and you’re still putting the microphone in my face!”
The reporter apologized profusely, to her credit.
