Scout caught a short piece about Chertoff wanting embed reporters at natural disasters.

It won’t work. Reporters want to be where the action is, and I think Katrina made it quite clear that FEMA and Homeland Security are totally incapable of finding out what is going on. Without independent reporting they wouldn’t have had any idea what was really happening in New Orleans.

It took multiple media outlets and live images to convince DHS and FEMA that there were people at the New Orleans Convention Center.

Given their track record, FEMA will be lucky if anyone bothers to attend their press conferences.
