Re: Journalism Ethics

In reading over my shoulder, the wife actually brought up a good point...

Channel 5 was selling a tape from the Worcester Firefighter's disaster.  Was
that crossing the line?  The difference being OpSail was info-tainment, the
Worcester Firefighters story was straight news, hard news I might even say.
I'm not sure what the actual content of the tape was, but then again...

And yes, before anyone chimes in...I know the money from the sale went to
the memorial fund.  Not that the money wasn't going to a good cause - but
that struck me as odd.  OpSail doesn't strike me strange.

Do you suppose Chet, Nat and the good folks at Ch. 5 were compensated for
their work on the tape?
