A News Man Worthy of Respect

This post by Nashville news anchor Neil Orne should be read in broadcasting classes everywhere. Here's a snippet:

More often it seems that instead of actually being an informed observers we (the news people) are placing ourselves ahead of the news we cover....It just seems to have gotten to the point where the news presenters are more important the news being presented. Granted not many news events come with a supplied audio feed of what’s happening, but when they come along I just wish someone would recognize how much we would appreciate not hearing the anchors for once.

Exactly. Now, if we could just get Orne to stop that reporter with a microphone hollering at the guy on the perp walk....

Hat Tip: NIT
