I'm interrupting our travels to mention the current top news item here in the USA, the shocking attack in an elevator by a footballer upon his then fiancee, now wife.
Every US channel report we saw last night showed the sickening video in its entirety multiple times. This morning the BBC World Service by contrast is illustrating the same news item by selective still shots from the video.
Domestic violence is an abhorrent practice. I wonder which is the better approach to publicly reporting such events? The 'in your face' coverage by the US channels which seems salacious or the BBC's discreet style which may have the effect of understating the seriousness?
