[name here] from WNYT News Channel 13 was very flip when covering a story about a musician who had his oboestolen and felt devastated at the loss. The man earns his living playing that oboe. I’m sure many musicians consider their instruments an extension of themselves and feel that loss deeply. I found his attitude and tone insulting and irreverent to the musician he interviewed and to all musicians who create music for us to enjoy!
(Yes, I deleted the reporter’s name. I am not the one who saw the news segment, so there is no way I would put the name up here.)
