Down In The Flood

Friday, August 17, 2007


A year and a half ago OTM took a trip to New Orleans to see what effect Hurricane Katrina had had on the city’s media. What we found was a city where nearly every aspect of the news was being reconsidered. With the 2nd anniversary of the storm approaching we check back in with David Walker, television critic for the Times-Picayune and Ernesto Schweikert, Spanish-language broadcaster.

I don't know what other Americans are thinking, but I don't consider New Orleans' people to be corrupt, stupid or careless. But I don't blame the Army Corps of Engineers, either. Nobody should be blamed for not making infinitely safe an area is that below sea level and subject to hurricanes.
