Why are the BBC showing this video? What sort of message, information, do they want to convey to the viewer? Why do they show subquality, smart(less)phone unverified footage from an unverified source? Why do the BBC find it appropriate to forward such rubbish from YouTube?
Why, watching this video, do I have this sinking feeling of voyeuristic complicity with whoever, insensitively, recorded it? Why do we have to make a spectacle of everything? Specifically, why do we have to make a spectacle of other fellow human beings’ distress? Why did the citizen-come-unethical-journalist who recorded it did not feel his or her actions were objectionable?
Why did he or she feel it was OK to point a slab of pocketable hi-tech with an electronic eye at some bloodied innocent victim? Why, after having been lured into playing the video, I feel cheated by an otherwise reputable media institution? Why did I feel the need to do it…was it my fault to want to watch it?
Why did I have such a strong urge to write this post in the middle of my lunch break? Because I felt indignant.
Can someone help me answer some of the other questions?
