“Brian, we as a business have been giving these kids a lot of coverage,” HLN host S.E. Cupp said. “All the networks have in some way or another. And as I was mentioning in the last segment with Connie Mack, gun policy is boring, right, so it doesn’t get a lot of TV coverage. It shouldn’t; it is boring; I understand that.
“But the policy’s the tough part,” she continued. “Do you think in showing these kids so often, as often as we all do, we’re doing actually them a disservice because the policy is actually what’s going to change this? The passion, I fear, will just sound like noise after a while, and people will tune it out.”
“A disservice is a strong word, but when I was interviewing David Hogg only 10 days after the massacre, there were a few times I wanted to jump in and say, ‘Let’s correct that fact,’” Stelter admitted.
“That’s so interesting. Let me stop you. Did you…” Cupp pressed.
“And at one of the times, I did, and other times, I did not,” Stelter replied. “There’s always that balance, how many times you’re going to interrupt.”
