Truman crew ambushed by NBC

Well, well, well. Turns out the national media covering the Katrina response got tired of the intergovernmental finger pointing, and started a witch hunt of their own. The first trial: the crew of the USS Harry Truman.

Granted, the Truman -- equipped with a huge hospital -- will likely not be much help at this point because the seriously injured evacuees have already been air transported to regional hospitals. But the ship's deployment is indicative of the "look-at-what-we're-doing" version of public relations that I mentioned in a previous post ...that the Truman's arrival is nothing more than a publicity stunt.

Well, watch this to see Ann Curry do a classic ambush interview ...doubt the Truman's captain or public affairs officer saw it coming. I'm surprised NBC chose to fry the US Navy, but I hope the word spreads to the other military services, including my beloved Air Force.

I don't doubt your theories one bit, even though it's a crying shame that things like that take place.
