From the BBC Radio 4’s today program;

Has the media’s coverage of the Haiti earthquake been too graphic and violated the dignity of the disaster’s victims? The chief executive of the Disasters Emergency Committee, Brendan Gormley, has warned against using material that “connives in the sort of disaster pornography that does exist” after newspapers published images of dead bodies being emptied out of trucks.”

My favourite, like so many other persons I feel is this one, it just portrays utter joy and relief. However , if you only show images like this, will the people donate so much, do we need to be shocked into giving?
