Sky News Live - disgusted of Tunbridge Wells...

#1
I'm not sure if it's all that new but this morning Sky News showed the 'live' discovery of the bodies in one of the light aircraft which went down yesterday. For once, I was shocked. How would a relative feel watching the dicovery of their dead father? Surely this really isn't news, it's just utterly blatant 'grief tourism'?

Sorry, not making myself clear as usual. What they showed was a Dr finding a body in the aircraft, they didn't show the actual body. Even so...

This very much reminds me of a shot from the live coverage of 7/7 when they showed a young man being taken into the Hospital being given chest compression, I though it was in pretty bad taste to show a guy who had a very good chance of not making it live on TV, however the footage was repeated again and again on futher bulitens and I often wondered if he pulled through or not.

I wonder that to this day - who was that guy? and did he survive?

What makes Sky's coverage all the worse, that when it was first aired, all NOK hadn't yet been informed. The aircraft was identifiable enough for any of those concerned to put two and two together.

People complain when the News take away from the reality of things, people complain when they keep things real. Basically, the Media will always be criticised by someone no matter what they do.
