I am personally disturbed by the recent reporting of this news (and perhaps many others in the past years all along too):
where the pictures of the minor children were published on front pages of newspaper. I first saw it on Lianhe Wanbao, when I google, I found the asiaone link with more images. In my humble opinion, I personally feel that some privacy and respect must be accorded to the dead and the surviving kins of the deceased victims. Will showing the faces/identity of the victims benefit the public more? Or benefit the paper more?
Shouldn't there be some considerations of limiting further trauma and harm to the surviving kins?
Another thing that bothers me is that these are private citizens, and involving minors/children, not some celebrities or public figures. Is there a need to comment about the 'suspected infidelity'? What kind of damage would be inflicted upon her? Has the media reporting already 'sentenced her'? Regardless of what she really did it is still her private matters, isn't it so? Again should there be some sympathy for a mother who had just lost both children?
My questions may be unfounded and my opinions may be flawed, if there are any journalists (ex or present) or sociologists here who would care to share some enlightening insights would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance.
