Over the weekend, former Congressman and current New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner hit the stump to push his campaign. During one event, he had an awkward event with a child. An eight-year-old second-grader at PS 182, Jenesis Vaughn, had the following exchange with Weiner after telling him she wanted to go into journalism:
WEINER: What kind of reporter do you want to be? A print reporter, for a newspaper, or a TV reporter?
VAUGHN: I just want to be a TV reporter.
WEINER: You might not want to go into TV – it’s a dying industry. The internet is where it’s at.
Weiner should know.
