Last night (1/16/08) my wife & I were watching Action News 24 at 5pm on WJET. The were talking about an automobile accident yesterday morning in Cranesville on route 18. Sadly, a 12 year old boy died an hour after the accident at a local hospital and the video showed the 17 year old brother (who was the driver) crying and wondering how his little brother was. We both were stunned that they would show the boy during a very difficult time & felt that showing him was not appropriate under the circumstances. What do you think? Did Jet TV go over the line of ethics & class during a very difficult situation. Feel free to let me know. Our condolences to the family during a very difficult time.
