A reporter in Phoenix was covering a story about flooding when he and the cameraman stumbled across a woman screaming for help.
So the reporter helped her. And the cameraman shot the rescue. Then they aired that on the news.
Did the reporter do something heroic and thus become newsworthy? Or is he simply casting himself as a hero by airing his good deed?
If you had rescued that person, would you have broadcast it?
