On ABC's Nightline at about midnight, ABC correspondent David Kerley said something in a taped look live that cuts to the very core of how we go about covering news at TV journalists.
"Often I think television focuses in on something and makes it much bigger than it is. This is so big that we can't really give you the scope of it. Television
doesn't do justice to what has happened here on the Gulf Coast."
The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, much like Hurricane Floyd here in NC in 1999, but on a much larger scale, is a huge event of historical proportions, but all of the media, TV, Web, Blog, Podcast, etc...coverage in the world isn't going to scratch the surface of what has happened on the Gulf Coast.
