The Media: Our New Security Breach?
Only a couple short days ago, our President emerged from his situation room to let us all in on what happened the day of the failed bombing attempt on a Detroit bound flight this past holiday. Since then, and even prior to President Obama’s press conference, the media has been having a field day trying to shine the light on airport security flaws. Everything from drug sniffing dogs not passing their tests to unidentified “passengers” entering through the exit doors and cameras that fail to record have graced the media headlines, morning, noon and night. While we can appreciate the media’s attempt to keep us all informed, at what point does their “expose” style of reporting endanger our security? If some nut case wanted to penetrate our transportation system, they need only watch the news for ideas on how to do so. As frequently travelers for business and leisure, the amount of openness that our media has on this subject matter is quite unsettling to us.
Let us know what you think Vyne Readers. Is the media our new security breach or are they helping to fix the problem?
