I found this exchange on a newsfruppe I subscribe to. Someone commented on how out of character it seemed when Shepard Smith lambasted the feds on Fox News. But a day later Smith had disappeared:

Welcome, 1984 was not such a bad year.

Anyway, much credit should to to Smith, to Geraldo, to Aaron Brown, and especially to Anderson Cooper for actually being reporters during the long wait for federal help in New Orleans.
