    Just because these videos is shown to the public doesn't mean people find it entertaining. News is news, and sometimes watching the images of something gruesome is also a way for us to fully grasp the situation at hand.

    I believe the closest thing to entertainment of this sort would be MTV's 'Scared'

    it depends only here in america they dont show things like that on the news alot. In other counrties, you tube, and face book you find it every where if you know where it look. Its a fact of life that things like that happen everyday, everywhere. for the most part its the best way to deal with it, to actually see that it still goes on, and be able to know how to deal with the situation.

    for me i dont like it, but what can we do, television is changing everday. from more sexually enhanced shows - to viloence. i can deal with it for the most part, its not pleasent but its reality, im more not into the sexual stuff that people like my children will be watching one day and on basic cable. the violence i can block from them for awhile since many children and young adults dont like the news, the other well.....most of the channels have to be blocked.

    ..........nothing is true, everything is permitted..........

    If its not real, then there is no issue on the cause, put a 'Mature' rating on it and let it be. Ive seen plenty of movies that were sick and twisted, but a movie is just a movie. Being real is a different story

We are all fans of visual culture but when does a desire for entertainment become to much. I think television is wrong to show clips of people being shot or what not to death. They are just wrong.

    What say you!
    I say, we need to be informed.

    I do agree with you that sometimes the media wants its brownie pts. with the pop culture, but they also need to stick with their roots - which is, tell us what it is, how it is, when it is. It's our right.

    So to tell me, "this is what happened, because of this, here - see for yourself.." I can either chose to see it, or not to see it.

    Don't try to censor what I can and cannot know, because if you do there is going to be a serious problem.

    For entertainment purposes, I don't think that's the reason, really, why the media is posting it out for us to see (unless they are television shows and movies, werein lies the *entertainment value).

    imo.

    Well people die all the time in all manner of ways, and people get off on the misfortunes of others............

    So, it's perfectly natural to have images of people dying or getting killed on TV.

    Are You Not Entertained???

    Who watches the news to be entertained? The only reason I watch the news is to learn, and if my learning process is disrupted, I might as well not be watching the news.
