In response to FEMA’s request for news outlets to not photograph the dead bodies left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina by filing a lawsuit. Because of that, a federal judge has issued a restraining order against the ban. I guess we can expect to see the pictures of someone’s family member found dead in their house after they’ve been left there for weeks all in the name of the “free flow of information”. Check out the arrogance of CNN’s Anderson Cooper…
“The government cannot be allowed to hinder the free flow of information,” said CNN journalist Anderson Cooper. “That’s what we say in the lawsuit.”
I guess the media cannot be allowed to have a sense of decency and decorum either. No wonder CNN’s ratings have been on the slide for years.
UPDATE: The federal government has dropped the ban in response to the lawsuit. I guess we can look forward to Anderson Cooper’s Cadaver Variety Hour now. Believe it or not, there are some things the media doesn’t need to know.
