Don’t look know, but multiple media people are calling out ABC News over its interview with Alec Baldwin airing later tonight.
CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski called it “unseemly”:

I agree. It made me so uncomfortable to see this. It’s still an active investigation.

RealClearPolitics’ Tom Bevan called it “just sickening”:
I want to hear from Baldwin, and I'll watch this. But the way ABC News has chosen to promote this interview is just sickening. A woman died. It was, and remains a tragedy. https://t.co/AsBCdqEIic?

“This is tasteless,” writes journo Ashley Fantz:
I agree. This is tasteless
