There's one on the Today show right now, but they've been on every news program all week - montages of footage from the earthquake, occasional snippets of reporters being sickeningly overdramatic, and swelling dramatic music in the background like it's Schindler's List. I'm sure it will be submitted with a "for your consideration" subtitle to the Emmy committee, hoping for a nomination in the news & doc category. It serves no purpose but to desensitize people to what's really going on there, the same as it did after the tsunami and Katrina and 9/11. So, why do we (they) continue to reinforce them as being "good journalism" or appropriate?Answer Question
