Isn't it self-explanatory what I'm doing there? Getting preached to on how insensitive I am.
Writing about "this person" was a nice touch, wasn't it?
A bit more serious:
It's a topic that interests me. Journalism plays an important role in democracy, I think. So to me, it's vital to ask questions.
Besides, why would I throw away my opinions just so that a person would still talk to me? I have a backbone, you know. Pfffft...it's not as if she talks much to me as it is. Not exactly losing much, am I?
