Feeding on the Dead is the New Contagion in Media

Millions of people log on to their personal machines to watch Saddam Hussian’s execution posted by a government official present at the scene.
The row between Shilpa Shetty and Jade in Celebrity Big Brother reported all over the world as news whiles the number of people watching the entertainment channel soar. Getting people hooked and quiet a few people making quick bucks by what is known as the most crucial part of striking a viral “timing”. This is defiantly a distorted uncontrollable and in my opinion unethical form of viral marketing where TV becomes sensationally real and reality becomes sensational TV
You know that when news channels begin reporting on Television as if it were reality and the news becomes a real life drama. How far are we willing to go? Seems to me that there is a price for human life and integrity and unfortunately may not even be able to rest in peace. The latest cash on death seems to be on Bob Woolmer.
