Truth?

Considering all of the media coverage of Katrina's devastation...I wonder if anyone else has thought to consider this perspective...

We WATCH the aftermath of storm. The grief of the victims. Heck we saw on TV a woman in torment over her overheated and dehydrated baby. Why weren't the American people shown that same woman recieving help?!

I really am so fed up with the media coverage being on the negative slant that it is actually offensive to find that they would waste video footage on a woman in turmoil.

Put the damn camera down and give her some relief you heartless jerk. And if the camera person did help...why not bolster the rest of America's hope rather than fuel our fires?

Wouldn't it be a grand thing if journalists, who can get anywhere and go everywhere with a FREE PASS because they are journalists...would start HELPING people rather than just documenting their misery.

Now there's a thought.

I seriously wonder if our media coverage is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God.

PAH-REACH it to the choir, baby - you can get an "amen" AND a "hallelujuh" from me!

Media = Truth? That's like Devil = Holy.

Thanks for the post.

Good point...and how does this differ from the flooded plains of a few years (1992)ago when the entire Mississippi vally and Missouri River valleys were under thirty feet of water.As I recall, entire towns were completely under water for a thousand miles along the Mississippi and millions of peoples were wiped out. Guess what-They'rreee Baaacck!"
