What The Hell Is NBC Doing Inside Attackers' Apartment?

Is this what passes for journalism these days?

I didn't have my TV on, but I saw my Twitter timeline explode: NBC, live on TV, rifling through the possessions of the San Bernardino attackers in their home? Is this not a crime scene? There they go, flipping through the pages of their books, rifling through baby toys and family pictures. WTF? So many ethical and legal breaches, I can't keep count.

Time for another bloggers' ethics conference!


John Amato:

Anderson Cooper: I personally kind of thought, this is one of the stranger things I've certainly seen in quite a while and kind of uncomfortable with all these people traipsing through this owner's apartment...

MSNBC wasn't the only culprit today, but their reporter showed a Farook family member's driver's license to the world. What the hell? I know Donald Trump wants to take all terrorists family members out, but this is unforgivable.
