Showing The Smell

nyc_gas_scare.jpgWhile Manhattan residents continue to go about their day as if nothing happened — probably because nothing did — TVNewser tells us that the cable networks are all over the strange smell story.

The dilemma, of course, is how to depict said terrorist gas attack on television. Networks are getting creative, with mixed results. MSNBC showed a map of New York City, while CNN combined satellite pictures from Google Earth with wind data from its weather center. Were it up to FishbowlNY, we would have taken the barebones approach: A long pan of the city, ended with Anderson Cooper plugging his nose.
