‘Getting people information’: 9-year-old crime reporter schools CNN on how to do journalism

Published

on

Hilde Kate Lysiak, a 9-year-old crime reporter from Pennsylvania, gave CNN a reminder about what it meant to be a journalist: “I like getting people the information.”

Earlier this month, Lysiak came under fire from some adults after she broke the story of a man using a hammer to kill his wife.

Lysiak proudly told CNN host Brian Stelter on Sunday that she did all the reporting at the Orange Street News, but she said that her parents helped her with the technical aspects of running her website.

“I started handwriting a little paper for my family,” Lysiak recalled. “And [I] realized that my hand was hurting and it didn’t really get me anywhere. So, I told my dad I wanted to start a real newspaper, and he said he would do the printing and the layout as long as I did all the writing and reporting.”

“I like getting people the information,” she added. “Just being 9 doesn’t mean I can’t do great things. What if somebody told you, you couldn’t be a reporter just because you’re a boy?”

Trump adviser ties his tongue in knots trying to explain away the president’s anti-Hispanic racism

Published

On Monday night, President Donald Trump received heavy criticism after a rally in New Mexico in which he turned to one of his Hispanic advisers, Steve Cortes, said he "looks more like a WASP than I do," and asked him "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"

Talking with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, Cortes was completely undeterred from going to bat for Trump against accusations of racism.

"Forget about how he put what he put to you last night. He's not the greatest wordsmith. It was a little clumsy, you recognize that, none of that matters to me," said Cuomo. "Here's what matters to me. How can the Latino community believe that he loves them when he has said so many anti-Mexican and even anti-Puerto Rican things, how can he love Latinos when she's shown such animosity?"
