IMO, it's just common decency that you don't show dead or dying bodies in local newspapers or local TV news shows.

 

I know common decency is a thing of the past, but that still doesn't mitigate the fact that if indeed folks were exercising it (common decency) as they should be, we wouldn't be looking a dead and dying people on or in the local news.

 

People tune into, or read local news specifically to AVOID the "if it bleeds - it leads" mindset.

All somewhat irrelevant considering common decency departed the planet years ago, and this is but another bit of proof that not only is it gone, but that it will likely never return.

 

I'm all for press freedom, but this is a particularly sad exercise of that freedom.

CHEK and Black Press are hardly credible news sources to begin with.

 

I haven't watched, or read either of them for YEARS, and I suspect I'm not alone.

 

Where do you get your local news? 

 

Anyone reading this forum knows I've given local media a lot of grief (I got into a bit of a back and forth with a CHEK producer regarding a poorly done segment on Atwell once), but I also will commend them for doing a good job and will defend them when they're being unfairly slagged.

 

As for asking Bratzer to curtail his outspokenness on social media, dude, that boat sailed like ten years ago.

I don't think anyone is asking David to hold back his opinions. Quite the contrary.

He has a credible perspective for sure during his 6 year tenure.

Right here in the forum!, - much faster, more thorough, and way more accurate than any local newspaper or local TV station!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this in Vic West (not Esquimalt)?
