Many reporters ask dumb questions, often focused on some variation of “Who’s to blame?” Or “How much blame do you feel you should be shouldering?” (“I don’t know. You want a percentage…?!”) They want to be the ones who get their sound bite aired on the nightly news, want to appear tough and probing and relentless, earning kudos for themselves and their networks.

Word of advice: formulate better questions. Or just don’t bother. We’re no better informed for having endured the vanity.
