No Good Deed Goes Unpunished as Today Show Now Frets Too Many Troops in New Orleans

<p>It had to happen. When the chorus of MSM complaints of federal inaction was drowned in a sea of thousands of soldiers moving into New Orleans, the MSM nimbly adjusted. Now the problem is . . . too many soldiers.</p><p>NBC's Carl Quintanilla framed it this way on this morning's Today show, with the rubric &quot;Chaos in New Orleans&quot; displayed on screen:</p><p>&quot;Now that the military is moving in huge convoys of soldiers, concerns that too strong a military presence in too small a space could cause accidents, crashes.&quot;</p><p>Today then aired footage of a rescue helicopter that had rolled over in the mud, as Quintanilla fretted &quot;it's just what residents of New Orleans do not need as they decide whether to leave a ravaged city or tough it out.&quot;</p><p>When it comes to the MSM's treatment of the Bush administration's response to Katrina, it's damned if you do, damned if you don't.</p><p><i>Finkelstein has degrees from Cornell University and Harvard Law
