What is happening on the coast of Texas right now is terrifying and jaw-dropping in its scope. Reports say the rain may not stop in some areas until Friday. If you are reading this newsletter from that area, please be safe. Often during events like these, it is hard to process what is happening or to know the best way to help. The best thing we can all do now is pray and offer help to people we know who might be affected.
The longest storm …
TV reporter saves trucker … Watch this video. While we often talk about the biases of journalists in this newsletter, it is also worthwhile to take a step back and highlight when they do good. Especially when they save lives. The video linked above shows KHOU reporter Brandy Smith flagging down a Harris County Sheriff driving a rescue boat. The sheriff then saved the life of a trucker who was rapidly being engulfed by floodwaters.
Just another reason to attack POTUS … Twitter was full of journalists and cable news personalities attacking Trump for the response to Harvey. Including CNN’s Ana Navarro, who tweeted that Trump hadn’t given an update via Twitter on Saturday morning, but could talk about a book by Sheriff Clarke. The thing is, before Navarro tweeted, Trump had tweeted out storm updates. CR’s Chris Pandolfo called it deranged, adding, “Your dishonesty makes legitimate criticism of POTUS impossible.”
Weather Channel meteorologist rescues flag … Paul Goodloe, a meteorologist with the Weather Channel, saw an American flag lying on the ground while he was in Texas reporting on Hurricane Harvey. He picked up the flag and properly folded it. NewsBusters has the story.
