Posted on 09/09/2005 5:04:35 PM PDT by RTINSC
Anderson Cooper announced on CNN that a restraining order (1st Amendment) has been issued allowing reporters to meddle in the search for dead bodies.
Oh good lord...this is low.
I don't believe it.
For what good could it be?
I would ad a caveat - every one they find they have to tag 'em and bag 'em --- and they can't count the ones already found.
See how long that would last.
? Taking pictures of the dead is protected political speech. Another dumb judge cannot distinguish between political speech and commercial speech.
These ghouls want pics because it sells. Their true interest is in their wallets.
High risk of the meddlers contracting a fatal illness?
I heard they found one horribly disfigured dead body...but it was just Larry King taking a nap in his office.
One can only hope.
From past experience I can tell you that having news media dogging a body search can end up with a camera man or two falling down!! Just not a good idea.
Of course the images of the planes crashing and people jumping from the twin towers are to disturbing to air, but somehow this isn't/sarcasm
After the Galveston TX 1900 hurricane, Kodiak fiends (love that word they had for MSM pimps of the era) were shot dead on the spot by the militia and police for taking pictures of the nude dead. I would suggest the practice be revived for modern MSM Kodiak fiends.
Sick. But not surprising.
Next, they will be digging up bodies in cemetaries.
The MSM had three goals to accomplish from Katrina disaster.
1) Blame Bush
2) Everything that goes wrong, blame Bush.
3) Show as many dead as possible, blame Bush.
MSM is now in phase three.
Ping for the media corpse show.
Seems that this was predicted, and the infanticide in all of its High Definition Technicolor gory (not mis-spelled) is no longer taboo. For shame.
So they can sell the raw footage to Michael Moore for his next crockumentary.
"Looters found despoiling the dead were summarily executed by the militia - stood against the nearest wall or pile of debris and shot without the hindrance of a trial. The same brutal justice was delivered to amateur photographers. Word received from Galveston today indicates that Kodak fiends are being shot down like thieves. Two, it is stated, were killed yesterday while taking pictures of nude female bodies. Dallas News, September 14, 1900.
Let me see if I've got this right...
During the aftermath of September 11th, the media dicatated that the pictures of the dead were "offensive to the memories of the dead and their grieving families", but now the eagerly await the opportunity to provide 24/7 television coverage of the victims of this hurricane.
Hmmmmm... what's different about this situation? (sarcasm font off)
Maybe we will get to see Anderson's dead body.
I wish I could find a picture of a hearse with a satellite dish on it.
It seems this would violate Teddy Kennedy's HIPPA regulations.
Amen to that.
who said you have to help them stay in the boat (oops ot again CNN) thats the 6 th time today you've fallen in the muck (oh that was an old man)
The media seems to be pathologically obsessed with viewing corpses.
Their preoccupation has gone way beyond morbid curiousity and their single minded desire to look at and photograph corpses conjurs up images of grave robbers.... and worse.
Anderson Cooper has been talking about dead bodies every single night.
When he was a teen ager, he saw his brother dive off the balcony of his mother's ( Gloria Vanderbilt ) high rise penthouse .
Perhaps in his case, it's some sort of post traumatic stress flare up.
The phrase-" just when we think the media cannot sink any lower " is not sufficiently strong to describe their disrespectful and odious mission to sensationalize the last remains of someone's mother or father or son or daughter.
CNN is so behind on this. DU has already been linking to pics and waving them around like the neanderthals that they are.
Even ghouls would pass up taking pictures of the corpses in some areas, from what I understand. Perhaps the 'news folks' will get their fill in an hour or two and abandon their folly -- though never being able to erase from their memory what they saw.
So if they locate someone presently deceased, how will they know for sure he/she did not die of shock at seeing Anderson Cooper. After all, it is virutally impossible that they would have seen him previously on TV.
Such a disappointment for CNN to find out today, early estimates of 20,000 dead way high. In fact, Trace Gallagher to John Gibson on FOXNews, just a few minutes ago said, experts are now saying there could be as few as only 1/4 that number who died in the hurricane.
How disappointing for CNN's program planners who obviously expected to see piles of corpses to photograph.
Why are these CNN scum allowed in while legal residents are kicked out of their homes?
who said you have to help them stay in the boat (oops not again CNN) thats the 6 th time today you've fallen in the muck (oh that was an old man)
It's called the Constitution. I raised my right hand to defend it. Any questions?
If CNN thought that Americans deserve to see the morbidity of this, why didn't they feel that way about the pics of Americans falling to their death out of the windows of the WTC?
"For what good could it be?"
RATINGS = M O N E Y
but they never showed a photo of someone jumping from the WTC, or the body on the sidewalk. that had to be sanitized, but they want to tag Bush with these photos.
Can you say, "ratings"?
While I routinely boycott cnn, I will especially do so if they are allowed to show bodies.
This is going to backfire big time; no matter how many times, Cooper says 'we're going to be respectful," they won't.
I absolutely positively HATE the press....ours and theirs.
Ghouls is a great word to describe these cretins.
Nobody wants to see this, except the press.
On August 31, Anderson Cooper accompanied a search and rescue team in Mississippi, going through a neighborhood, finding a body on the street and dead families in the boarded up houses.
CNN had a link to the video last week, but I can't find it now.
However, here's a link to the transcript of the video:
The transcript for the video starts down near the bottom of the page, where he interviews a neighbor named (not kidding) Sally Slaughter.
yep, first they want to censor the news and now i see take away guns, whats next quartering troops? I never had to take an oath, but I'd raise my hand to defend it.
I need to see what judge, located where, wrote what, with what parties before the court. It smells like legal sewage to me, but I need the particulars to be sure.
Cooper will pass out at the sight of a decaying dead person.
Is that "Kodiak" or Kodak, like the camera?
FReeper near New Orleans goes and pretends he/she is near death, waits for a CNN camera do a close up and then say, "Why has the governor and mayor forsaking me? Where are the promised buses?"
How does the song go? - Dirty Laundry...
"The bubble headed bleach blonde comes on at Five, she can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye...It's interesting when people die........"
That's why.....because they want too.
News, ya know.
