Sorry About Your Home, Where’s My Private Jet?

Sorry About Your Home, Where’s My Private Jet?

I have this no doubt unpopular view that the multi-million dollar news anchors who go on site during a tragedy should be contributing substantially, financially, to the relief efforts. After all, it’s the loss and misery of the people involved which has created the news event, driven the anchors to arrive in person to boost their ratings, and subsequently increase their income even more.

Is it so unreasonable to hope that a network multi-millionaire, after interviewing someone who’s lost a home, for example, might then say, “Here’s a check”?

    I’ve thought about that too, especially when they interview people in extreme poverty in the third world. But, I’m not sure if that’s ethical. I think the media needs to be detached from the news their reporting on.

    I think contributing to a charity privately is good, but if they give right at the scene, then it could bias other interviewees, who might tell the reporter what they think they want to hear, in order to get money from them.
