Mediabistro Chats: 12.20.12


Mediabistro Do you think the media should cover tragedies like Newtown with a press pool? (via @Slate)

twitter@Judithqopr Simply, yes. Press pool far more respectful of the survivors and caregivers.

twitter@novafortnightly No. Different reporters may present news in diff ways; multiple reporters can interview multiple ppl at same time, etc.

twitter@sjer152 Absolutely...don't need intrusion of them covering (and tripping over) each other.

twitterSamantha McShine No, I don't. I think it glorifies tragedy... attention and memorial should be paid but not in a way that publicizes the killer...
