But even everyday people deserve respect as well. If I happen upon some gory scene like a car accident I don't take pictures of the injured. I'll render assistance if needed or get the hell out of the way if not.
Yes I understand the press has a right to be there. After all, I swore an oath to defend the Constitution. But with rights come responsibilities and quite often the press forgets about that. They often get the story wrong. They brush aside details because they want "the big picture" and forget that if you get all the details wrong they aren't likely to get "the big picture" right either.
I have no doubt that some journalists are driven by an honest desire to inform the public, but I also know from my own experience that far too many are worried more about advancing their careers and all else be damned.
