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.
