you think the news media is going to avoid sensationalism because "its the right thing to do"? are you fucking kidding? just like they "do the right thing" when it comes to war crimes, politics, imperialism and all the rest?

its about MONEY kids, ratings, hits, likes, attention... whatever gets people to watch gives the networks more potential ad revenue

how many times will this have to happen until people understand that? the answer is that it will keep happening forever, because humanity is unable to move beyond it and get their priorities in order.. it will happen until there is no one left to die anymore, because no one will still be alive

cynical, yes - but accurate according all the data at hand in the past century of broadcast journalism

Agreed. And the irony that this clarion call is coming from Forbes of all places, lol! A magazine by douchebags for douchebags who make a living fucking over other people.
