There’s no good reason to show news correpondents in hurricanes

I call it weather porn. They could just show the view from a camera without having someone get pelted by wind and rain. We could see the bad weather without a miserable person in the picture.

Why do we want to see other people suffering? This also applies to shows like Highway Thru Hell and Heavy Rescue 401. They show an endless series of trucks destroyed by accidents, generally in snowy weather in Canada.

I agree with this tweet.
