Quote of the Day - The price of freedom of religion, or of speech, or of the press, is that we must put up with a good deal of rubbish. - Robert Jackson

Full Coverage of Katrinaís Devastation

In light of the governmentís decision not to pursue a policy prohibiting the media from covering the recovery of bodies from Katrina-stricken areas, the responsibility for coverage in a respectful nature now falls on the media itself.  While I support the freedom of the press to cover the disaster in its entirety, I believe that the media has an obligation to cover the most sensitive areas and issues with dignity and respect, lest they forget the impact these images continue to have on families, friends and colleagues.

Now is not the time for sensationalism, but for the media to recognize that the price of great freedom is great responsibility.
