Do I assume correctly that you're referring to people working for Fox? :)

This is actually an important issue.  Before all of this happened, I
had seen a documentary on how network news were going to greater and
greater risks in their coverage of hurricanes, spending huge resources
to have their journalist in greater danger than their competitors,
solely to improve their ratings.  Extreme Journalism for the Extreme
Sports generation, Survivor takes Big Brother to the heart of darkness.

It will be interesting to watch the same dynamic at work in Afghanistan.
