US Abandons Efforts To Censor Media From New Orleans Searches.

In a follow up to the Nitwit Planet story FEMA Censors Search For Bodies, the US had announced it will abandoned its effort to prevent the media from reporting on the recovery of the dead in New Orleans.

The decision came after CNN filed a suit in US District Court, and Judge Keith Ellison issued a temporary restraining order Friday against a “zero access” policy.

Joint Task Force Katrina “has no plans to bar, impede or prevent news media from their news gathering and reporting activities in connection with the deceased Hurricane Katrina victim recovery efforts,” said Col. Christian E. DeGraff.
