Either NBC was deliberately trying to make a story look as painful and tramatic as possible, by placing their reporter in a canor, rather than having her stand in ankle-deep water, or it was an honest decision, made for the reasons given. I'll allow you to make up your own minds. But what struck me about this article was this: If it indeed was, what I suspect it to be...NBC via their reporter trying to make a situation look as desperate as possible to increase ratings and prestige, then obviously the media has learned NOTHING from the huge amounts of media bullshit that came out during the Katrina aftermath...and... Where is the media cry for honesty and integrity and treating the REAL flood victims with the respect and honesty they deserve? The "coached" military presentation was leading, front-page news...so why is this being treated as little more than a blooper. I am not implying that Bush's people feeding the troops the "right" answers is on the same level as this...but this event certainly smacks of a certain problem in the media...why do so many people NOT in the media seem to want to ignore it?
