The conscience of media

  1. So true, Chris! I have always held that we have, in fact, not at all moved away from the old Roman circuses with all its blood and gore. The “arena” has merely become the television set – whether the blood and gore is real or staged. An everyday example of this fascination with the suffering of others would be the block-up of traffic that occurs on highways when there has been an accident. How people love to rubber-neck and gawk! I guess that for many people the sffering of others makes them feel better about themselves and their own life situation.
