        He was the one whose belongings were carried out in paper bags as his neighbors watched; whose roommate, also a student, was questioned for five hours (“I was scared”) before coming out to say that he didn’t think his friend was someone who’d plant a bomb—that he was a nice guy who liked sports. “Let me go to school, dude,” the roommate said later in the day, covering his face with his hands and almost crying, as a Fox News producer followed him and asked him, again and again, if he was sure he hadn’t been living with a killer.
        My bolding. Just when you think they couldn't be any lower.

          In the better world in my head, that producer would have no job now. Jeez.

          Of course, the way this really works -- and I wish I could just pin it on Fox, but it goes well beyond them -- he's probably on his way to a promotion for asking the "hard hitting" questions.

          Of some random student who had already gone through a hard enough friggin' day.
