CBS Defends Showing Crying Children in Tournament Broadcasts

There may be no crying in baseball, but CBS is happy to show plenty of it during their NCAA Tournament coverage.

Speaking to Yahoo Sports, CBS executive producer Harold Bryant defended the practice saying, "It’s part of the drama and the storytelling of the tournament".

Viewers have taken to social media to complain about cameras constantly panning to children in the stands, crying after upset losses.

Bryant, however, dismisses their criticisms saying, "We can’t control what people are doing on the internet. We’ve gotta strike a balance. We’ve gotta be journalistic and cover the story."
