9/11 anniversary and TV…

Here’s an article from the entertainment section of CNN.com about ABC lifting its ban on showing video of the planes striking the World Trade Center. The article says:

TV network executives promise to be judicious in how much they use video images that are already burned into the collective memory. But it’s clear those images will return. Nearly a month ahead of the anniversary, CNN began airing an advertisement that shows one of the planes heading directly toward the tower. The scene cuts away before impact, however.

Does anyone doubt that television will handle this “anniversary” poorly? I recently suggested a boycott of television this September 11th. OmbudsGod seconded my suggestion.
