ivan.184.6-1.jpg The thing that’s crazy to me about all these hurricanes sweeping through Florida and the gulf states is all the television anchors who put themselves in the midst of 100-plus mile-per hour winds to get the best shots. Last night, A_nderson Cooper was in Mobile, Alabama talking about how the entire city had evacuated, but here he was, covering the hurricane.

Panama City Beach, Florida is on CNN this morning, and anchor is anchoring himself against a tree to keep from blowing away.

Of course, it’s all about the ratings and viewership. It’s exciting. We like to see people in the middle of danger. I wonder how long before a news reporter is swept away by a hurricane some day?
