Well, there is another side to the camera in everyone's pocket.  Those who 
are taking advantage of the free for all.  There is a question of ethics 
here whether or not capitalism is in the equation for the news 
organizations.  To me this is more a story about the fall from grace of 
news reportage in general.  The real news is that there is no integrity or 
ethic in most news reporting.  Photography is really just the willing 
victim of this wider trend which is more damaging and dangerous then just 
about anything I can think of, except maybe 4 more years of GWB
