Networks Detail the Terror at Joplin Hospital

St. John’s Medical Center stands out among the devastation in Joplin, MO. It still stands, seriously damaged — windows blown out, two top floors gone — while the neighborhood around it is flattened. That may be why each of the evening newscasts, who all dispatched anchors to Joplin — featured the hospital in stories tonight. Brian Williams called St. John’s a “landmark in Joplin” which has “become an iconic picture” of the devastation all around. Diane Sawyer reported the “World News” piece on St. John’s, doing one interview, with a medical flight manager who was inside the hospital, in the driving rain.
