Hurricane Coverage Suggestion

Many media commentators complain about the cliched coverage of hurricanes by having some reporter standing outside in the wind, shouting into a buffeted microphone that yes, indeed, it really is windy in a hurricane. While many ask that the stations not insult our intelligence or waste our time with such shots, I think they should be encouraged. The only modification I would seek, though, is that they be restricted to areas nearby scrap metal dumps or hubcap stores.

I've lived through enough hurricanes, I don't need to see video of it to know what's it's like. I track the storms via radar/satelite shots online.
