Field Reporters Should Be Nominated
I’m finding that more and more networks are sending their reporters into harms way with all the hurricanes that are hitting the States this year. How much of the reporting taking place at ground zero is theatrics and how much is real? I’m not denying that these reporters are standing in the middle of a hurricane; I’m questioning the force of the storm at the time of their reporting. It amazes me that when you see them reporting that they are being blown all over the place, attempting to hold on to trees, mailboxes, and telephone poles so they don’t blow away and all the while the camera that’s shooting their apparent demise stands still. Are the camera men that CNN hires perforated so that the wind passes through them, or is it actually an Oscar winning performance by our honest media?
