I saw it on CNN live and the shot was not much different. I don't think that any of the photographers had a favorable shooting position and there was just enough time to get off a second or two of video. We saw the best they could get under the circumstances and would withhold judgment that any of us could have done better. For what its worth, it appears to me that the CNN crew was positioned to the right of the FOX crew based on the photo you posted. CNN had a slightly better view but not much.
That's my sentiment exactly. From a mother's point of view, I don't exactly think I'd really want a camera in my pointed at my kid after he'd been lost for 4 days. All I would care about is that he had been found relatively safe and unharmed.
