Never shy of taking advantage of a tragedy, the DM must have posted around 50 articles solely about the Boston Marathon bombings, by now. They have already tried to sell us 3 symbols of the event so far (elderly runner, 18 year old girl, lady who saw her sister lose a leg), demonstrating how hard they’re working to be the ones to create an iconic image of the unfortunate event.
What’s really mind numbing is that it’s all ok in the name of “journalism”. Hasn’t any one of them stopped to think that maybe, just maybe, they should try and respect the victims and families of this tragedy, instead of researching about them and their close ones, plastering their details online for all to see and relentlessly hounding for details, just for the sake of a few more readers?
This doesn’t need any sensationalism to be extremely sad, but that’s exactly what they did:
RIP the 3 victims and hopes of speedy recoveries to all the injured.
