Trade and character

In 1999 a building at the site I worked at then was hit by a huge explosion. 2 minuttes later Fire Service, ambulances and police arrived at the scene. Followed by a couple of cars from the local eye report. Their interest was to film the whole event, ask questions to chocked people and disturb the Fire Services ability to work.

That sort of reporting was relatively new at that time.

Nowadays hospital emergency areas are monitored by cameras in order to prevent reporters from filming at the area, and most of all the areas around the emergency entrance.

This is costing tax payers tremendous sums of money. It also raises the question - once again - about media ethics. If there wasn't a buyer, there wouldn't be a seller. And un-fortunately "respected" newspapers and TV-stations are the main buyers of this type of eye witness pictures and films. They even encourage private individuals to send in material filmed with their mobile phones.

Media is not here to give us interesting and relevant views on the news. - Media is here for commercial purposes only. To make money. Why do we - the viewers and the readers accept this without questioning?

I think it's something deep in us that likes to dwell on others misfortune so we can say to ourselves: Good it wasn't me. It's not so charming but I'm not sure it can be avoided unless the media themselves try to curb the interest by not bringing it. And I'm afraid a lot of people is a bit too lacking in the mental department to be able to question what they see and hear in the media. If it was on the telly it got to be true!

You're right. And if you read the comments on the very blurbed (I don't know what else to call it) website tmz.com you really get anxious about the mental level of a majority of people. It's very sad to see how the media can manipulate with peoples brains and get the worst sides out in the light. I think humanity just got itself killed......

tmz.com IS a bit frightening but I've still got a little hope for humanity. I think that more and more people (but not enough yet) are tiring of the way the media get by at present time. And are tiring of the easy access the weirdoes have to the media. I hope that there will be a more morally driven media instead of the cash driven we have now...but I'm no where near convinced yet.
