Katrina: “Don’t Be A Hero”

By Brian 

From Nick Matigan‘s Baltimore Sun piece about hurricane safety for news crews:

“The first thing we tell them is ‘Don’t be a hero,'” said Nancy Lane, CNN’s news director, as she concluded her fifth conference call of the day yesterday in preparation for the storm. “We don’t need any heroes.”

“You have to consult with your troops,” Lane adds. “Safety is always the first thing. If they didn’t feel safe, they’d get on the road.”
