Social media: shaming the shamers!

[VIDEO] CNN seems to have a bad rap among right wingers for fake news, but I really like this human interest story. It's a cautionary tale about social media and how people pontificate without knowing more about the context. Main thing we have to recognize, behind some of the memes we've seen online there is a story behind it.

In the case of this man, he wanted to make himself presentable when he finally met his brother. He had been ill, and was homeless. So one could infer that since he was taking a shave on a train, he had no where else to groom himself.

Perhaps it was rude, and perhaps it was gross. Then again there is a story behind it. Now that many of us know about it through CNN, we root for that man!
