CNN Wants a Body Recount

The Hollywood Reporter says that CNN has filed a suit against the government. The cable news station wants to be able to air the recovery efforts of Hurricane Katrina. Not to sound sappy, but haven't we seen enough already?

I love my news as much as the next person, and I am still interested in what's going on around the Gulf Coast, and how everyone will move on from this horrific disaster, but the idea of watching the water get removed to see hundreds of thousands of dead bodies -- possibly someone you're related to, met once, whatever -- is just a tad bit nauseating and tacky.

Call it what you want, but it sounds like a ratings ploy to me. People cannot resist a car accident. My morning commute is proof of that. So my guess is that CNN would hit a ratings high if they get to go in. Sorry, but no one needs to see that. If that was me or one of my family members, I would be willing to forgo my 15 minutes of fame.

Today, CNN is boasting that they have a judge that's on their side. They can call unconstitutional, they can call it un-American, they can call it just mean for all I care. Want to cover the relief efforts? CNN can do more stories on how people can help and their own $50 million donation -- oh wait, now THAT would be news. -- Rachel Cericola

NO, I WANT TO SEE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE, OTHERWISE THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION WILL SUGARCOAT IT, OR PLAIN LIE ABOUT THE BODY COUNT.

WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING POSSIBLE ABOUT THIS SERIOUS SCREW UP BY OUR GOVERNMENT?

Knowing everything is not the same as seeing a pale, bloated corpse... sorry, but it just isn't.

Give me some investigative reporting on it. I am all for that. However, I'm also an adult. I don't need a picture book to explain everything.
