Helicopter deaths: shame

The news that four people died when two U.S. news helicopters collided last week was stultifying; the deaths seemed too pointless to even mention here.  Then I read Mark Hamilton’s blog post, and find myself in agreement with his opinion that the helicopter crash is a sign that “somehow journalism has lost its way and has copped out of making tough decisions about what deserves to be covered and about what’s important.”

Read it yourself.
