“CNN Petitions to Dig Up Hastily-Buried Flood Victims
by Scott Ott
(2005-09-10) — The Cable News Network (CNN), fresh from a legal triumph allowing it to televise the recovery of dead flood victims, today asked a federal judge to allow it to dig up and videotape any bodies buried in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
‘While we were petitioning the court to cover the recovery of corpses, some victims were hastily buried,’ said an unnamed CNN spokesman. ‘Our viewers have a right to see the decaying flesh of each and every citizen who perished from lack of federal government assistance. That’s why the First Amendment exists.’
The network source said news anchors will issue the following warning before each ‘CNN Cadaver Closeup’ segment:
‘Caution: the following report includes disgustingly graphic depictions of rotting human flesh. If you can possibly look away from your TV set, do so now…especially if you have any relatives in the South that you haven’t heard from since Hurricane Katrina hit.'” — Scott Ott / ScrappleFace
CNN is without dignity or respect. The vulture like shadows of their executives are now being cast on their office walls in Atlanta for all of America to see in their true blood thursty glory. God have mercy on your souls.
Did you threaten to go to court to over rule Lt. Gen. Russel Honore’s directive against media photographing dead bodies for a buck? Ratings? Or to further a perverted political cause? Oh, yes, of course, it must have been to foster 1st Amemendment rights. What was I thinking? – zzb
