Matt Frei is a Cock!

On yesterday's 10 o'clock news BBC reporter Matt Frei was interviewing a law enforcement official in New Orleans. He really dug in there and would not let the guy off the hook. What was the question that Matt desperately needed an aswer to?

He wanted to know why they were not removing the dead bodies from the surrounding water. He even pointed to one body and said it had been there for two days. And why would the official not answer his question, the stance that clearly warranted Matt's aggressive questioning and badgering?

Well actually he did. He very calmly said that his unit was 'tasked' with helping the relief effort by rescuing the refug evacuees. Now he did say this very calmly and did use a bit of 'corporate speak', but basically he gave an answer. Frei then badgered about the corpse until the official said that they were interested in helping the living and that the clean up of the dead would occur after.

Valid, reasonable point.
Now I guess that the emotion of the situation might have coloured Frei's judgement and if so then I guess his attitude is completely forgiveable. But last night for a few minutes he displayed all signs of being a cock!

Yes, he most certain is/was a cock, as you so eloquently put it.
