JEFF JARVIS OFFERS SUGGESTIONS for 9/11 anniversary coverage.

UPDATE: Reader Steve Mytyk emails:

The best thing that any network could do, from both the public service aspect, and adding to their own bottom line, would be to replay their exact video coverage of that awful morning, from 8:45 am ET until the fall of the second tower. I guarantee it would have every TV eyeball riveted to their station.

I guarantee it won’t happen. There’s too much investment in forgetting all that stuff. The networks didn’t even show most of the jumpers at the time for fear of making America angry.
