CBS News gives "the media" a bad name in coverage of the Haiti story
As a newspaper person, I tend to disavow any association with "TV people," and for good reason. When people slam "the media" I often like to think they're usually talking about TV. Here's a good example, right here in Kuna. CBS News has a reporter following a local woman who has a connection to the Haiti kidnapping charges. Following is probably a nice word. Tailing or stalking seem more appropriate words. The ironic thing, though, is that they've blown any chance of getting an interview with her now.
