Katrina, two years later
CNN, MSNBC, and Fox had the best live coverage, and the public knew more than the government. The best coverage anywhere: The New Orleans Times-Picayue. Even when they couldn't a publish a print edition because their printing press was flooded, they published a massive number of stories online, and they had a depth of coverage and understanding that only a local could have.
As citizens, we have a duty to revisit Katrina and the aftermath. It tells us volumes about government and its failures to protect us from a known danger. One can only ask: Why did the Bush Administration do so little, so late? The events of August 2005 remind us of four years and one month earlier when the government had warnings of another potential disaster.
