CNN Wins the Right to Cover the Search for Bodies of Katrina Victims:On the one hand we're fed up with government trying to sanitise the carnage. They do this not for our benefit but to minimize public outrage.
|In explaining the ban, Ebbert said (the city's homeland security director), "we don't think that's proper" to let members of the media view the bodies.|
But on the other hand the media want to cover it because they know that drama and horror sells.
|"In an e-mail to CNN staff, CNN News Group President Jim Walton said the network filed the the lawsuit to "prohibit any agency from restricting its ability to fully and fairly cover" the hurricane victim recovery process."|
And the political left want to exploit it for the "Perfect Political Storm".
Unfortunately that is the world that we live in. The public are but pawns in this political game. Either way the dead and the suffering lose.
