MSNBC is again running its rebroadcast of its live coverage of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, in real time.

Whatever you think about the propriety of showing the images or how the media has handled them since, it still continues to be horrible and fascinating: not just because of the ghastly events, but as a chance to see how perceptions of the events (which, it took a while to sink in on air, were intentional), and with them the national conversation, changed in real time.

Seven years later, do you think it’s more or less appropriate to re-air the images?
