Go on YouTube, suggested ABC's Nancy Cordes (subscription required), and one can find plenty of clips of teachers behaving badly in the classroom. This video, captured by students' cell phones, worried Cordes because it is an example of "disrespectful behavior" in contemporary society. Cordes seemed to be about to criticize teachers for their rudeness in cursing and screaming at their students. Not quite. Instead Cordes' target was those students for having the nerve to document bad classroom behavior by their pedagogues. Talk about blaming the messenger.
