MH17: Appalling act, even more appalling media response

The downing of the MH17 flight in Ukraine is APPALLING!

Downing passenger flights should be made akin to a war crime.

More than that, however, I am appalled by the media response. Do we really need to see pictures of the explosion, wreckage and even passengers’ luggage sprawled over the landscape? Do we need to see pictures of grieving relatives?

When will the media learn that this is completely unethical? How about treating the families, and the viewer, with some respect and dignity? Showing these pictures must be distressing for the families who will be wondering and imagining what happened. Harassing families to get their pictures or interviews in completely inappropriate! How would they feel is someone shoved a camera and mic in their face after one of their family was murdered?

Appalling act, and disgraceful actions by the media!
