He says:

Look at this photo from the Olympics. I count about 75 photographers, each decked out with a $9,000 (or more expensive) camera and lens (and most of them are carrying several cameras).

This is in a year when tons of journalists are getting laid off.

This is in a year when there are tons of stories around the world that aren’t getting reported on.

I couldn’t agree more.

Uh, not to put too fine a point on it, but it’s because the whole world is interested… including Scoble.

You’re right. There are two sides to it. That the world wants these photos. I reacted to it because I had thought the same thing.
Then, of course, I have looked at those same pictures.
It’s the hippie in me coming out.
