I keep thinking to myself: how can these people in the media get up every day and go to work?
Look, we all have this primitive urge to look at disasters. But why is it ok to build a business around it without anyone saying a thing?
The coverage of the Japan tragedy is just a farce. You have to read pages and pages to actually get to some useful information: what is happening, what can we do to help, how could we prevent something like this from happening again.
It is all about shock pictures, endless personal anecdotes, and all the stuff that only transforms that horrible event in basically entertainment. Sad but entertainment nonetheless.
Events come and go and this just keeps getting worse and worse. Someone is financing this mockery. I make a point of not buying from companies associated with this kind of media but apparently I am an exception.
