An element that enhances credibility of reports about an incident is
"accessibility."The more accessible an event being
reported upon, the higher the credibility of reports about the incident.
"Accessibility" issues have led to the development of the "Eyewitness
News" coverage today. Local stations work to enhance their credibility by having
reporters "on the scene" showing the audience everything from accident triage
units, to cats caught in trees.The "seeing is believing" maxim is one that
governs modern television.
