Oh, The Horror Reporters Endure

Hollywood Reporter discusses the astonishing fact that many news outlets haven't simply let the Katrina story die after a week or two. But was the following spin on the issue necessary?
A year ago, television journalists were plunged into unimaginable hell, telling the story of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath that devastated one of America's great cities, killed 2,000 people on the Gulf Coast and forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee for their lives.
I think it was the PEOPLE who suffered an "unimaginable hell," not the journalists who covered it and (unintentionally) boosted their careers.
