No Rest for the Networks, Ike A Cat 4 Storm

With Hurricane Ike poised to be next week’s big news story, (it’s currently a dangerous Category 4 storm) the NYPost’s Adam Buckman has thoughts on the coverage of Hurricane Gustav.

“…while a correspondent on Fox News Channels was reporting that no levees had been breached by rising waters, a piece of text just below him on the screen was reporting urgently that a levee had failed…On MSNBC, a correspondent who was driving with a video camera through an area hit by the storm kept saying he didn’t see much damage other than fallen trees. But the video he was capturing showed fallen billboards and other smashed signage all over the place.”
