I'd like the New Yorker to read this article:
I knew most of what was reported in this article already from various
things I was reading, but I have corroboration in one article now --
most of the violence that was reported happening in New Orleans by the
national media after Hurricane Katrina *never* happened. (The local
media on our battery operated TV never reported things like that. They
were busy getting the real stuff out that people who were still around
needed to know.)
This makes me so mad, because most of the nat'l sources have not made
any retractions. They were just reporting what they heard on the street
and not following up on it. As if the squalid conditions and the
indignities that people had to endure -- that really did exist -- were
not bad enough to report on! Because of the rumors and false reporting,
I'm sure some of the rescuers were deterred from what they needed to be
from Kenner -- 2 suburbs to the west of the city of N.O.
