As I logged out of Hotmail, IE redirects me to the MSN News page. One of the links relates to the death of Merrick McDonald who had worked for Aegis Defence Services in Iraq for 18 months. http://newsbox.msn.co.uk/article.aspx?as=adarticle&f=pa_showbiz&t=3982&id=3966596&d=20061020&do=http://newsbox.msn.co.uk&i=http://newsbox.msn.co.uk/mediaexportlive&ks=0&mc=5&ml=ma&lc=en&ae=windows-1252 I'm pretty sure that the Sun also led on the same story this morning. What I find offensive is the categorisation of this type of story under the "Entertainment" category, with a sub category of "Showbiz News" - the reason, Merrick McDonald previously worked as one of the Beckham's bodyguards. I feel that if the only way that newspapers / news providers can encourage readers, is by linking the saddest occassions to "celebrity" we are suffering the lowest forms of journalism possible. Anyone of our visiting journalists care to put their' head above the parapet, and give us the journalist's / sub's view this sensationalism?
