I can’t say I am much of a fan of CNN but this time they stood up to big government and told them to shove it. I don’t see why we can see pictures of Uday Hussein dead, pictures of the mass graves in Iraq, pictures of the Holocaust but cannot see pictures of Americans dying, no photos of Abu Ghraib because someone might hate us. Government has became the photo police trying to take over the first amendment so no one questions them.

FEMA is just trying to cover up something (possibly the governments bad job) by not allowing reporters to view the recovery.

Read post about how they possibly treated women.
“CNN talk show host Larry King announced late Friday a federal judge in Texas issued the restraining order and scheduled a hearing for Saturday to hear arguments in the suit.”
Now I hate to see people die, but if it wakes Americans up to the fact that people did die and that something must be done in the future to stop it and it prevents government from mishandling this recovery mission as well than I am all for showing as dead bodies to make sure more people don’t become one of them.
“HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) — Rather than fight a lawsuit by CNN, the federal government abandoned its effort Saturday to prevent the media from reporting on the recovery of the dead in New Orleans.”
Thanks to Rick Rajter for the link to CNN defeating the government.
