Notice how this wonderful woman deals with the sick grief-mongering reporter in this video which is now making the rounds. "Oh, I know exactly what happened," the woman says as the reporter shamelessly angles for tears, or at least some self-pity. 

Then we have a story from Grand Forks where a high school student was killed in a motorcycle accident. The accident is news. This is not. Grief is not news. Interviewing the grieving and turning their grief into a news story is pure yellow journalism, an invasion of privacy and a abrogation of editorial responsibility.
