Where Death is Okay?
I chose to take the movie route on this again. In the reading talking about death and journalism, this lady focuses on near death photos. Although in part of the reading it states that sometimes we never see these photos because of what they are showing. However, we see death everywhere we look. We read about it, either in news stories or books, we hear about it on the radio, and we watch gruesome movies all the time, where people die and or are killed. But I think near death, and especially when it is a photo touches us in a way that all of these other medias do not. We are seeing this person, or people possibly the last moment that they were living, for example, the man jumping from the world trade centers, and it makes us stop, and think, and feel for that person. I dont think there’s anything wrong with showing near death photos. I think they make us feel and think twice, and they should be in the news when they can be.
