Submit World Trade Center designs…

CNN.com – World Trade Center site: What would you do? This interactive page asks viewers to submit drawings for the 16-acre site. Tonight I watched Aaron Brown display a few of the drawings, and I wondered about CNN’s motive. Surely they know that no unofficial design will penetrate the authority of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., the Port Authority or any other association involved with the design selection process. Instead, CNN offers viewers a chance to go public with their ideas, make a fleeting splash on national television, and then fade back into the unknown. CNN gets a long-running human interest feature that neither comments on nor furthers the official process.
