In the aftermath of the recent prisoner escape and murder of a law enforcement officer, various on-line news web sites offer up photographs of the motel room where the suspects were arrested. Unmade beds and the remnants of carryout fast-food strewn about the nightstand do not begin to accurately depict the story of characters involved. A personal tragedy has occurred and we are shown images that could be found in any number of houses, apartments or dorm rooms around the world.
Between the media flocking to where the Georgia runaway bride-to-be was performing her community service by mowing grass and then reading in today’s paper about the South Korean dropping dead after hours playing online games(which I read first heard about two days ago, so why the delay Charlotte Observer, slow news day?) I guess I’m not surprised, just disappointed(again) with the ‘news media’.
