What do you do when you’re just slightly in trouble? We’re talking “ate the roommate’s leftovers without asking,” not like “ran over Grandma’s prized poodle.” Sheepishly hide in your room?

Easter morning came with a jarring jolt of profanity when CNN correspondent Susan Candiotti delivered quite the rotten egg during on-location coverage of the April 6 shooting spree in Tulsa that resulted in three deaths, killings that authorities contend were racially motivated.

The world’s news media does so enjoy the caricature of Oklahoma as the buckle of the Bible Belt. And, yes, while there’s no denying that much of the Sooner State’s population is devout, every so often a TV correspondent will stumble across an Okie who hasn’t gotten the memo. That’s what happened last week when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer did a live TV interview with a woman whose family survived the May 20 tornado.

After her house was destroyed in the May 20 tornado, Rebecca Vitsmun bravely ditched the rules of Bible Belt conversation when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked her in a live interview if she “thanked the Lord” for having survived. Vitsmun hesitated before answering that she’s actually an atheist. That declaration prompted atheists everywhere to raise money for her, showing that Christian charity can be just plain charity.

You would think after 44 years as a hotshot journalist that Joe Klein, the author of the political novel Primary Colors and current Time magazine contributor, would know to do his research.

Take a number

Aaaaand we’ve made another list. Big-league status indeed! In yet another media company’s quest to deliver more bite-sized, easily digestible, scientifically ridiculous and irrelevant information, we have made CNN Money’s list of most stressed cities.
