Today's Two Cents Talk Show - Episode Two

Jul 5, 2006 at 1:54 AM

OK. Another reason I hate news & talk shows on TV. The logic behind the disaster and post-disaster reporting was terrible.

I remember watching footage of Katrina victims waiting on rooftops to be rescued, small children on their hips, stranded by water on all sides. It was a news helicopter reporting. Chopper kept wandering all around the city, looking for news of rescue vehicles. The logical course of action when you have a helicopter and help is taking too long is stupendously obvious. But not to a TV journalist.
