No Free Rides
As recovery efforts continue, the government reverses it decision to prevent media from documenting recovery efforts. Army Lt. Col. Richard Steele said:
"We're not going to bar, impede or prevent" the media from telling the story, he said. "We're just not going to give the media a ride."They weren't asking for a ride in the first place, asshole.
If the media had relied on federal officials for a ride into Katrina -- they might be telling a different story now, huh?
