Not than I'm a giant CNN fan, but sometimes I think the demonizing of the media is just a kneejerk reaction. Yes, they do dumb stuff, but they also do great things.

I agree-- they do. I do marvel at the courage of journalists who bravely go to places we wouldn't to bring us information we need. A free media is crucial to a free society, but I don't think it unreasonable to ask professional journalists (or ourselves, in other situations) to think precisely about what their goals are in a particular instance, and how best to achieve those goals while respecting the dignity of all concerned. It's not only and all about the story.
