Katrina Truth - Shame on the Media!

I was listening to Dennis Prager on the radio today. One of the most fair and thoughtful hosts in the history of talk radio. For those of you unfamiliar with Dennis, to say he's a restrained and careful communicator is definitely an understatement. His motto is, "I prefer clarity to agreement." He takes great pains to present each side of the story, usually greatly exaggerating the time allotted for the side he disagrees with.

I say all this to recommend a story by that "politically inflamed" hyperbolic media outlet known as Popular Mechanics. Dennis referred to a story run in March 2006 that addresses the facts of Hurricane Katrina, and it's aftermath.

It is an astonishing story to read. The positive aspects of the tragedy have been totally ignored in mainstream media. Really makes them look VERY bad. I've been jaded for years on the media as the result of all of my research and "info-obsession". But this story exposes surprising journalistic irresponsibility in the mainstream media even in light of my prior utter contempt for them.

You must read it! The link is the title above. When are they going to get it? There are reasons they are loosing audience. The fraud this article uncovers is a big one.
