Cbs Blog Criticizes The Early Show Interview

The CBS blog Public Eye, which generally seeks to put a transparent face on CBS News, has taken the unusual step of criticizing the CBS News-produced morning program The Early Show for its coverage of an incident in which a Disney World employee dressed as Tigger allegedly hit a teenage boy. During the broadcast, a video of the incident taken by the father of the boy was repeatedly played. Public Eye's Brian Montopoli observed afterwards that he could understand why the father and son were invited to appear on the program: "Video footage like this is hard to resist, and the folks at the Early Show have a couple hours to fill in the morning. But," he added, "we'd like to think that we would have brought somewhat more skepticism to the table than [Early Show anchor Hannah] Storm, who did not challenge the family's characterization of the incident." Public Eye did not post any defense of the interview from anyone connected with the broadcast.
