This is just another case of a reporter needing to think before he speaks.

Via Gawker:

As you’re all probably well aware, the shit-covered Carnival cruise ship finally arrived in Mobile, Alabama earlier tonight. CNN’s Martin Savidge, who during an interview with passenger Rob Kenny, compared conditions aboard the ship to life in New Orleans immediately after Hurricane Katrina.

You know, the storm that killed thousands and nearly destroyed a major U.S. city.

Thankfully, Kenny put Savidge in his place, telling him: “Well, let’s put that in perspective. Katrina was a major a devastation. We’re out on a freaking cruise ship, and just out here having a good time…those are two different things.”
