Earlier this week, The New York Times ran an article titled "Media Strive to Cover 9/11 Without Seeming to Exploit a Tragedy". "There’s no precedent for something like this,” said Lawrence C. Burstein, the publisher of New York magazine. There has been debate about how the anniversary should be covered. Should it be left to great thinkers and elegant writers to define what the attacks have meant for the country? Or are Americans better served by the accounts of those who experienced the attacks first-hand?"
