There’s an interesting debate taking place online about the media coverage of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Michael David Murphy wrote an interesting article in Foto8 entitled Does Haiti’s Coverage Call for a New Photojournalism about the redundancy of a large number of images coming out of Haiti. In The New Republic Noam Scheiber asks whether so many different media companies need to be in Haiti all at one time, using valuable resources at a time when water, food, and electricity are all very scarce. They both make arguments for pooling of tasks by different media, whereby they should co-ordinate their coverage and minimise their impact on a disaster zone. Photo District News also step into the fray with their own viewpoints here.
