“If you don’t see it, I don’t believe the impact truly hits you.”

CBS News’ 60 Minutes aired a piece this week on the 2013 sarin gas attacks in Syria which used some extremely graphic video from the scene. Al Tompkins put together a piece on it for the Poynter Institute, well worth going through. That quote above is from Scott Pelley who explained why they used the video.

The piece is online, be warned: it’s tough to watch.
