Why Society Has Become a Cesspool
Because media outlets are very conscious of their public image (for obvious reasons), concise letters to editors of newspapers in the violator's media market, detailing the violations, may help also. This brings the station under immediate, unfavorable public scrutiny. It's no secret that the print media do not particularly like their broadcast counterparts, thereby subtly enhancing the chances that such a letter would be published.
We are not on a crusade to "get" the media, but we have seen too many examples where some of the TV chase crews have acted as though they are "above the law" and are free to do whatever they feel it takes to get their story. The responsible storm chaser has a moral obligation to react strongly and negatively to irresponsible behavior, no matter who commits the act. It is particularly galling to see media teams who piously pronounce their dedication to the public good on one hand and who callously disregard the law and common courtesy in their need to get air time, media awards, and market share. Not everyone in the media behave this way, so the irresponsible minority needs strong sanctions from within the media, as well, to protect the good name and integrity of those in the media who behave responsibly. We hope that responsible stations will come down hard and keep coming down on their irresponsible chase team members.
