A reporter's job is to tell the story, not become the story. The accounts, video, and stills of an event are recorded in history for us all to remember. When something bad happens, what's the first thing you do? You turn on the TV or the radio to find out more information. When that bus crashed, everyone on these forums were clamoring for info. The reporters gave it to you. When 9/11 happened, where were you? Probably parked in front of a TV like everyone else trying to find out as much as you could. If all of the photogs and reporters decided to stop what they were doing and help, we wouldn't have the images and information that we do today. Without that, we would quickly forget what happened.
