Journalistic integrity demands showing pictures of dead bodies?

This week, best viagra pharmacy the NPR show On The Media featured Zoriah Miller; a freelance photographer who was disembedded from the Marine Corps after taking photographs of dead US Marines and posting them to his blog.

In the report, find Mr. Miller said the dead soldiers were part of the story and it was just good journalism to show the bodies.


105 people were murdered in Milwaukee last year.

How many dead bodies do you remember seeing in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel?

Around 40, ailment 000 people died in car crashes last year.

When was the last time you saw a corpse being pulled from a car on the evening news?

Don’t let Mr. Miller fool you. When a journalist wants to display a dead body, it’s always a question of politics not professionalism.
