I think it's wrong for a guy like that guy who lost 7 children and a wife to fire to be made to feel obligated to talk to the media.
I think it's wrong for the media to advertise, promote and present, in a "tonight at 11" way, coverage of his grief.
I understand that many people feel sorry for him, and that creates a *need* to make his story a news story, but I believe the way to respect his soirrow is to let him be alone with his friends and his faith.
Watching his pain doesn't ease his pain.
Maybe I'm a bit too "Don't photograph the Amish" in this regard.
