CNN Pot Reporter Gets Stoned On Colorado Story
No question reporting can be a dangerous occupation. But not every story is in a war zone and sometimes the impact of a story on a journalist can be pretty funny. At least it was when CNN broadcast its latest Gone to Pot segment on a cannabis tour of Colorado, which just made recreational pot legal. And as Gawker reported, journalist Randi Kaye seemed more toked than stoked after spending a day around people who were sampling the local goods.
With a big smile -- no, bigger ... bigger -- and a readiness to giggle at almost anything, Kaye's on-air demeanor during a segment of Anderson Cooper 360° suggested she had really gotten into the story and become part of it. She seemed so far gone that Anderson Cooper good-naturedly grilled her on air.
