Getting aid to the Haiti earthquake victims sure seemed to take quite a while. I have always been amazed that the news people could get to a devastated location so quickly. Even when Katrina hit the media were johnny on the spot!
What I don’t understand is that if the news people can get to a stricken area pretty quickly how come they cannot take some supplies, like water, to the victims too? Or do they?
I mean is there a regulation that says Broadcasters can’t give out supplies while they are out and about doing their reporting? Or do they?
I’m really curious. They report so I assume they have transportation. Is it possible that they do pass out what little they might be able to take with them?
I really appreciate the coverage these News agencies provide but can they or do they do a little more when it comes to providing a little assistance?
If the media folks do this, too. Can’t they toot their own horn about it once in a while?
Inquiring minds would be curious to know. Thanks.
