CNN's Gary Tuchman reports on Bryce Reed, an EMS worker in West, Texas. Anderson Cooper interviewed Reed after the deadly fertilizer plant explosion. Many regarded him as a hero, but now his statements about the incident are facing scrutiny.
Reed is currently in federal custody for allegedly having pipe bomb materials. He plans to plead not guilty to those charges, and his lawyer says he had no involvement in the plant explosion.
I remember Anderson's interview with Bryce Reed because Reed seemed too calm and scripted after a tragic explosion. Different than shock. I think he even recited poetry. Anderson was professional and gracious to all he interviewed. It was probably Anderson's interview that led to experts' suspicion of Bryce Reed.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
