CNN filed suit for right to cover search for bodies of Katrina victims
HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) -- Rather than fight a lawsuit by CNN, the federal government abandoned its effort Saturday to prevent the media from reporting on the recovery of the dead in New Orleans.
Joint Task Force Katrina "has no plans to bar, impede or prevent news media from their news gathering and reporting activities in connection with the deceased Hurricane Katrina victim recovery efforts," said Col. Christian E. deGraff, representing the task force.
U.S. District Court Judge Keith Ellison issued a temporary restraining order Friday against a "zero access" policy announced earlier in the day by Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who is overseeing the federal relief effort in the city, and Terry Ebbert, the city's homeland security director.
In explaining the ban, Ebbert said, "we don't think that's proper" to let members of the media view the bodies...

The media has gone insane...
Cadaver News Network.
Cool! hurricane porn..Just the thing to watch at dinner time. Here are some thoughts:
9a) suits by survivors
(b) revulsion of viewers
(c) hypocrisy of refusing to show victims and jumpers on 9/11 because it would "inflame" viewers and then showing these for the obvious purpose of inflaming voters.
The macabre network for sure.
I hope the good General keeps them on their toes. I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of HIM, while depending on his command for info.
This also means the military won't aid the media in any way during human remains recovery.
CNN AKA the "CADAVER NEWS NETWORK'
We're not stuck on Stupid!
Commander, Joint Task Force Katrina
The ghouls @ CNN are obsessed with death. Who in their right minds would actually want to look at scenes of mass death. And they have an agenda as well, because with every scene of death they will try to 'Blame' GWB, and at the same time attempt to enrage Blacks. They won't be happy until they destroy America.
Anyhow if it's images of dead bodies CNN wants, they've been scooped big-time. I just watched a 5-minute segment focusing on nothing but corpses.
Did anyone else see Mexico's "hurricane assistance" caravan yesterday? Two or three trucks plastered with Mexican flags on their way to N.O.; and L.A. stations were giving it huge play, as if Mexico was going to save our butts. The trucks were probably loaded with illegals. I'm sick of this stuff. You can only be subjected to so much BS propaganda before you finally lose it.
I hope the lawyers are running tape 24/7 and sue these ghouls into oblivion.
OTOH, the NOPD has already shown itself to be so corrupt, they may just need babysitting. Some of them have already joined in the looting. If they had free reign to people's homes & knew they wouldn't be filmed (i.e., caught red-handed), who knows what they would do? I'm sure there are plenty of empty 2-story homes with high-and-dry possessions that aren't nailed down.
Also, after seeing some idiot Gestapo policeman/NG/whatever tackle an elderly lady in her own kitchen the other day... Sheesh! What if the cameras hadn't been there? If someone had been seriously hurt, it would have been a he-said, she-said type of deal. I just think both parties are better off having their forays into people's homes documented to keep everyone honest.
Coming soon from CNN, the "CADAVER NEWS NETWORK" Your dead family members televised live from New Orleans as CNN finds them.
What's so surprising about the left-wing media exploiting the DEAD? All they're doing is photographing future Democrat voters.
The Spanish-language networks were the only ones to show the jumpers on 9/11 as well.
Pure emotional lunacy. Like you are really going to be able to identify "Cousin Joe" by watching Anderson Cooper pull him out of that nasty toxic gunk 2 weeks after he died.
How 'bout if you recognize Cousin Joe's house?
hmm they will show the dead, but has ANYONE seen a single picture of citizens being disarmed?
Will we see a picture of a citizen being forced out?
Even the old lady they forced out is now back home per FNC.
Yet CNN will not show the TRUE pictures of 9/11 during 9/11 rememberance.
No innocent people plunging to their deaths so we see the truth.
No stories about the islam memorial planned for the 4th flight.
Should we now assume that CNN HATES BLACK PEOPLE ?
"Well since most of the people within New Orleans were black, one must assume that most of the dead will probably be black.
Should we now assume that CNN HATES BLACK PEOPLE ?"
Well, it must think it can make $$ off dead, Black people, and so is salivating at seeing them dead.
