Hurricane Ike: Complaining Journalists

Posted by JungleBoot on September 15, 2008

Local and national journalists are upset that they can’t gain access to Bolivar Island and the west end of Galveston.  They feel it is unacceptable to keep them from “showing” the devestation.  My personal opinion is they can’t wait to show “bodies”.  One of the main pushes has been to get an accurate body count.  This has been broadcast sensationalism at its worst.  A group of people who want to report on the pain and suffering of others “first”.  What a horrible job to have.  I don’t know how they sleep at night.  What is wrong with showing some discretion and allowing government officials to release information when they are ready?  I don’t get it.
