    Damn Media! What's the point in showing a heap of rotting corpses!

    In my opinion it takes away from these people human dignity to show them pile up as mountains of rotting bloating corpses like so much road kill.

    I guess it will show people how bad it is down there so that more people will donate.

    Yeah but once or twice i can understand but every reporter at one point walks around showing you piles of bloating bodies...no names no faces just a pile of rotting flesh. That sh*t tends to desensitize people who turn them off completely....to the point where the victims start losing there humanity.

    Not even images...i'm talking about live reporting from haiti and the reporter from CNN showing you the yard of the morgue and there is bodies piled on top of bodies. Just a horror show.... and for a moment you kind of forget that you are looking at human beings.

    I've seen dead bodies for every catastrophe thus far. I agree it's not the best thing to show but if that's what it takes for people to understand what's really going on then so be it. Granted, some of the media outlets are using this just to bastardize the situation or make for good "ratings" but some may just want to get the message out there. If they showed ppl jumping to their deaths for 9/11 (they woulda prob showed the bodies for that too if it wasnt so damn thick with smoke either), and dead bodies floating around during Katrina and the Asian tsunami, why should this be any different? not every news channel is showing the gruesome images tho.
