Seeing Reagan close up made lasting impression - Bob Paslay

It was hard to get a photo without getting 10 other cameras coming into my frame. If one photogenic and animated protester began to shout something everybody with a camera swarmed that individual. Is the media so over-saturated that it outnumbers the people at the event it is covering?
