A letter to the editor...

The effect of the undersea earthquake was unpredicatble- the response of Channel Nine was as predictable as the sun coming up.

I knew this was big news item when they went with the all too familiar "could it happened here?" story, reminding us that New Zealand is on a fault line and what if... etc.

While I have no problem with reporting the numbers of Australians lost, to run the "what if?" line the very day of the disaster is not good journalism, reporting, taste, science or sense. It does however create fear, fill in time and otherwise distract us from the tragedy at hand.
