Metrodome Collapse: Staking Out A Disaster

Staking out a potential story is nothing new. Reporters do that all the time. But in the case of the Minnesota Vikings Metrodome collapse, one sometimes wonder if the lines between grabbing a scoop or an exclusive story & becoming a more active citizen becomes blurred.

If you haven't seen the video on the actual collapse as recorded by the Fox News team, here it is:

I'm not a structural engineer but when I sense something is wrong with a bridge or a structure and becomes a potential threat, I won't just leave behind a camera to record stuff and hope to get a billion youtube views. I'd call the authorities and ask them to take a look at it. You would do the same thing right?

Well, granted that Fox just gathers the news and not make it, don't you think they have a 'moral obligation' to discuss things with the stadium owner?

How about you, what do you think?
