TV ACCIDENT COVERAGE SHOWS NO COMPASSION

I am outraged! Someone explain to me why, when someone is killed in a horrible accident, television news feels the need to horrify you with unnecessary photo footage? My teen-age cousin was recently killed in such an accident, and I'm sure his parents and five younger brothers and sisters did not need to see the body bag being zipped to know he was truly dead -- thank you, Channel 4.

Do station managers have any decency or human compassion? If they should ever find themselves in similar situations, I wonder what would come first, their family's feelings or television ratings?
