Gawker Not a Fan of KTLA’s Murder Coverage

Gawker called out KTLA’s David Begnaud today for the somewhat lighthearted tone of his report on the murder of MTV music/production coordinator Gabriel Aron Benmeir. In particular, Gawker’s Richard Lawson wasn’t a fan of Gegnaud’s interview with “Block Captain” Joann Smyth.

“They banter back and forth a bit, all the while seeming to entirely forget that someone was horribly murdered right near where they stand. Local news broadcasts are often a bit tonally off, but the cutesy get-to-know-a-neighborhood vibe of this strikes as especially strange.”

The interview in question takes place about a minute into the piece.

Can’t really disagree with Lawson’s take. Although the rest of the piece was fine.

In other news, police still have no leads on Benmeir’s muder.
