When I Becomes We

Yesterday, FTVLive told you that KLAS Reporter Darlene Melendez tweeted about how she called a store while an active shooter was inside. 


After a number of people replied to her tweet and questioning her judgement as a journalist,  Melendez posted a follow up tweet: 


Notice that when she was proud of calling the store she said, "I called..." but when she started getting some push back, it became, "We call..."

Now, we were hoping that maybe one of her bosses would explain to her how calling the business while an active shooter is inside is not exactly the best idea, but that likely will not happen. 

KLAS Assistant News Director Joyce Kotnik was one of the first to retweet Melendez's tweets.

Journalists make mistakes, but it doesn't help when the bosses almost seem to encourage them.
