Question:

What are two words you do not want to say to a reporter during a media interview?

Drake D.
Answer:

"No comment" In the broadcast journalism business, it is often assumed when someone or a company states they have "no comment", it usually means the individual or company is hiding something. While you may not have a comment to provide, you would want to tailor a response such as, "Due to pending litigation/privacy laws/family's request, we are not able to provide a comment at this time."

"Dan went to the store, where he bought bread milk eggs and candy."

Answer:

The comma is located in the wrong spot. It is after where which makes the sentence a conjunction. You will also want to separate the grocery items with commas. Below is the correct way to write the sentence: "Dan went to the store where he bought bread, milk, eggs, and candy."
