O'Reilly was scolded by some viewers for showing people flying out of buildings. No wonder one commentator called us a bunch of pansies.

I think the answer is YES, and that's just fine with me. Over time we will be able so see with our own eyes the utter devastation in NY, DC, and PA.
No. Adults understand the devastation and children do not need the nightmares and hardening.

All I can say is I wouldn't want my wife's or my child's severed head on national TV for all to see and then repeated over and over for days. It would kill me, literally.

My 2 cents:
Laz you are right; the internet is the
only truthful news source available.
Let's hope that it is still
here after this possible Reichstag Fire.
Stainlessbanner (gotta love that name; I also like "The Stonewall Flag"):
The Spanish cable TV stations show more graphic scenes generally. They repeatedly showed the "plunges" and that was the only place I saw 'em.
As to the "up close and personal" stuff; I think it is best kept to a minimum on TV because there are a lot of young eyes out there and also out of respect for the dead.
I believe that graphic and complete media archives should be produced and posted on the web for those who would like to see and tell this story in all its utter horror.
(But I don't think our handlers necessarily want that.)
