Techno dinosaur- If one goes to this link for the Today show on NBC
on the right side top is says:Watch past broadcasts. Click and go to Wed. 12/6. The 7th video has an interview from the photographer.
My thing is that I can only imagine the families and the people who were there. Why should they be forced to see these things over and over again?
I agree that it is good we can discuss this rationally,without deciding one person's viewpoint is more valid than the next..all I know,from being a photographer at a certain level,his statement that he was running at the person,firing the flash,seems spurious to me,given the quality of that frame shown on the front page..and where are the ones directly before,and after,which would show joggling of the frame if he was running,no matter how good an image stabilization program on the camera..frankly I feel the guy is rationalizing,which I don't blame him for,cause he is under intense pressure from people as to why he didn't react.I think he learned a valuable lesson here.Shasta you are a good person to be upset about those images,however,they are apples to oranges as far as this is concerned..have seen the raw video of the nam shooting,it was swift and you do not want to intervene there or you will def forfeit your life I would believe,just like interposing yourself between jumpers at nine eleven and the sidewalk.Just different circumstances..if there is a bad guy here,it is the managing editor,cause they see all kinds of salacious stuff and should know better than to publish this poor man perishing.. the bar is always being lowered as to what is acceptable,as long as papers are sold..I wonder how his family would feel if that was him struggling for life on the tracks as that train bore down,and he is sold for entertainment purposes on the front page of a paper..not very cool,my friend..:glare:
