Reporting on Hurricane Andrew
Thank you for your upbeat and constructive coverage of the hurricane aftermath. It's a refreshing change from the daily fare of our other news sources. Which brings up the question: Have the media, for the most part, been doing the hurricane victims a great disservice?
If one of the greatest needs is for basic information and communication capability, why haven't the media been helping with it, instead of spending so much of their time and resources focusing on blame? Betty Smith, Chesterfield, Mo.
