When death becomes a way to earn!

Yesterday a celebrity, a movie actress who is famous in my place died. She died due to cardiac arrest. Her name is Kalpana. She was really a great actress. She mainly handled comedy roles and she had a way with it. Hats off to her works. But as soon as she died, I saw the television news media were competing to report the video of her death. I saw a post on Facebook with a video with her dead body labeled with a courtesy to a tv channel on it. I think they got the video first and it was all over the Facebook for the whole day. They had exclusive interviews with the relatives and her siblings, their sorrow... I just couldn't take it! I mean it's not the right time. Just give them sometime get over it. But what the media's are aiming is to capture the tears. I just feel like it's wrong to do this. What do you say?

You are right. I don't know if anyone want to see these videos they are covering with their greedy cameras.

They should change this attitude towards this kind of emotional incidents. They have to be more humane.

Welcome to the media. :) They don't care. They are cold hearted people who just want to get their perfect photos and videos to share with the world so they can make money.

It is wrong for the media to get those pictures. All they are seeking is money and that is wrong. They have no feeling for the family and friends.

They don't care about what other people are going through. They are just after the news and their jobs.

It's really frustrating even for us to have no privacy. I couldn't even imagine about them!

Very true it's become like a part of modern media culture to forget that the bereaved has a family.The whole probability of finding responsible journalism in india is less than finding a needle in a haystack.
