Is Anyone Else Tired Of The News Media?
I'm also disturbed by the images. Not the images of the aftermath - that is news. The images that are played over and over without any time or date stamp on them to let us know when they were taken. I've seen one particular scene (a man wading waste deep in water pulling a raft with what appears to be his remaining possessions on it) several dozen times. I know that image was captured within a day or so of the storm's fury. Here we are a couple of weeks later and they are showing that image daily as if it is current news. You know what I'd like to see? That street today. I'll bet there's been a little improvement.
And speaking of improvement, what of reporting on that? Why is almost all the reporting on the negative aspects of the story and not the heroics that are also going on there? Where are the stories of people who have given sacrificially to help? Where are the stories of the great neighbors who have risen to the occasion? What of the many who have made it to safety with family or friends, or even the open homes of strangers, and are putting their lives back together?
MSM (Mainstream Media) is wondering why it is losing its audience. Hmmm. What do you think?
