Grief: Not News.

Conjecture on missing Malaysian Flight 370 might make for a good story, even if the cable channels bleed it dry.Flight 370 search routeThat said, relentlessly filming grieving relatives is not news. Nor will it ever be.

  1. But wait, and yes, I’ll try to find Agamemnon and give it a read,.. but what if the news desk person said, “Get out there and get me shots of crying relatives, even get me the shot of you being punched at!” then the worker goes out and gets the lens into the face of the relative and gets punched,.. and ,.. then they get paid, and then they take their families on a holiday,.. then is it ok that they act that way with their cameras etc,… or should they quit in protest and then their families have to move out of their house and,…you still have CNN paying someone to do this dirty work,.. Turn off CNN and let them go bankrupt because they are already morally so.
