Simply have lost it, fed up with trying to contact family with no hope and just ready to yell. So fucking sick of shit today. And sick of these fucking reporters trying to win an oscar and all these fucking ass hats on tv and seeing the sick and elderly lay in the heat and watching the goverment not know what the fuck to do.

I have to agree with you on this one Oly. These people are vultures. I am sick of them actually acting like they care when in truth, this whole situation makes these news people orgasmic because they have a big story to cover and ratings shoot through the roof.

In addition, I am equally sick of all the criticism I'm seeing. These people act as if it's possible for FEMA to overnight snap it's fingers and feed, supply and evacuate 4 million people. Considering the enormous logistical resources that would require, it just isn't possible. Yet they know this. But they try to use it to create a stink because they know the braindead sheeple have no clue about what it takes to pull off something like this.

Did it ever occur to you they may be real?

Pretty brave words from people sipping on their coffee, watching CNN in their air conditioned homes. Oh that's right, the people of NO deserved it because they didn't heed the Gov's warning.
That's the same mentality the Libs have--Someone commits a crime with a gun so no one should own a gun.
Some criminal is looting, raping and shooting at rescuers so the whole community needs to die.
I thank god half of you people aren't in charge.

Not in NO, I am sure they are all fine. If they where in NO I would be down there right now even if it meant no weapons.

Bingo.

When Uncle Sugardaddy gets those new Star Trek transporters built we'll be in business. Until then we have to do things the old fashioned way when dealing with people living in a giant, flooded bowl.

"Instant" internet. "Instant" communication. "Instant" welfare check. "Instant" t.v. report. Blah, blah.

Guess what? Some shit isn't instant.

Think emergency management is easy? Those that do had better do some more thinking.

I doubt it, the media is the scum of the earth, only slightly above the looters. They are a bunch of socialist leftist bolshevik scum who know exactly how to manipulate their viewers to get the desired response.

Their only job as far as they are concerned is to push their socialist agenda, and destroy America and replace it with their socialist utopia....

So, no, I don't believe they're real....

The people of NO DID NOT deserve this, no one does (well, except maybe a city full of fundamentalists). And I don't see where anyone called for the whole community to die because of the looters. I have seen and concur with the calls for ALL LOOTERS AND CRIMINALS taking advantage of the situation to be riddled with 5.56mm diameter holes....

If it were not for the Media, thousands and thousands more would be dead.

If it were not for the Media, you would not see the images of dead bodies at their feet as you watch TV in your living room.

If it were not for the Media, more would be dying.

If it were not for the Meadia, you would not know what is going on there and 3/4 of these Hurricane Posts for the past 5 days would not be here.

Yes, they are just as bad as the looters.......Give me a break.

You guys have enough people to bash that are breaking the law and shooting and raping and murdering and .gov and the 1st responders and the 90,000 sqaure miles of waste land.....and you need more fodder?

Meida reporters have been covering dead bodies while .gov drive by them.

Go down there, with a camera and a mic, put a AR15.com sleeve on the mic, stay there for 5 days with little or no sleep see the death and destruction and the savagery that is going on and be all smiles for us as you report.

That one bug-eyed gal on CNN last night lmost had me throwing up. She's always been like that but it was magnified last night. Her and Aaron Brown are CNN's new "we really care" reporters. They think that will win them back some viewers.

Oh, I forgot about Anderson Cooper who was on the schene and MAD AS HELL. He is suddenly an expert on preparing for emergencies. He is the epitome of "hindsight is 20/20". And I was under the assumption that reporters were merely observers and could not lend their personal emotions to the report...at least that's what they all said about helping a wounded U.S. soldier if they were in a position to do so.

"THERE'S A SHORTAGE OF GAS!!!!!"

that may be true but wouldn't the public be better served to report it in a calm and rational fashion? The media has driven high fuel prices as much as the storm. Again, they claim their role is but to observe. Yet they are definitely involved and driving a lot of things through their reporting.

Even though john40mm should be the janefonda of this board, and it was proven yesterday...I tend to agree with his post here today.

First off I have only seen two field reporters with the water works, I guess new casters? I don't know what their names are but who ever sits behind the desk and reads the news. I have seen it quite a bit of times, more than I can count.

Ain't it rather strange they can be reporting 14 American Soldiers killed and they can do it and go onto who tom cruise is dating with out emotion.

Damn man, you're still trolling? Shit enough already.

Only a DU troll would somehow see people refusing to leave the area and now "deserving" (in your words) what is happening to them to liberals claiming no one should have guns because someone commited a crime. Those two things have about as much in common as me and you do.

Besides, it's not A CRIMINAL, it's a whole shit load of them. Are you willing to get shot for no reason just in case you might be able to save someone? If so, get your ass down there.
