May I politely suggest that this quote be stamped on the forehead of every editor and reporter in every single newsroom in America? Or perhaps read aloud at the start of every daily news meeting?
This is from a waitress being interviewed over whether Hillary Clinton's team left her a tip:
"You people are really nuts," she told a reporter during a phone interview. "There's kids dying in the war, the price of oil right now -- there's better things in this world to be thinking about than who served Hillary Clinton at Maid-Rite and who got a tip and who didn't get a tip."
