Dear WDAY Reporter, Stop Interviewing Your Friends

One of the worst parts of being a reporter is interviewing strangers about current events. It’s awkward approaching people on the street and asking them for a few minutes of their time. But we do it anyway, to provide an unfiltered view into the minds of the masses.

But over at Fargo (N.D.) TV station WDAY, reporter Cassie Rohlfing-Delorme doesn’t see it that way. If she needs some quotes for a story on, say, Tuesday’s presidential debate, she hits up her trusty Facebook friends.
