Tuesday, 11 September 2001 : "FOX anchor"Some Fox anchor got Rudy Guiliani on the air and the first question he fired at him was something about 'so what do you think the death toll will be from this?'
Guiliani essentially waved it aside, saying that what we should be concentrating on is facilitating the work of emergency teams to save as many as possible now.
Mayor Guiliani has it right, and I offer rude gestures to the Fox guy for only thinking about one kind of story, namely how to quantify and rank and attach superlatives to a bad thing. There will be time for that later (if one feels the need to do that at all); right now news organizations should be talking about what can be done (for instance, giving blood).
