In a message to members last month, Zuccaro cited instant television news coverage of the fatal midair helicopter-airplane accident over New York in August as an egregious case of media malpractice. “Many unhesitatingly stated the accident cause, and action that should be taken; interesting that such statements were made absent any facts…I think serious consideration should be given to changing the name of these individuals, from ‘talking heads’ to a more fitting name which better reflects the part of the anatomy I think they are actually talking from.”
