  • Agree totally with you Caine but wanted to clarify for everyone that there is a difference between true news media and paparazzi. The latter are unscrupulous, rude, insensitive and yes, only out to get a story. It takes character, honesty and yes, sensitivity to be a true journalist.

  • In this situation, even the "true news media" delivered the news without checking the facts. NY Times reported wrong info at first and had to change the story when they realized they were wrong. The Media is trying so had to be the first to get the story that they aren't checking them thoroughly first. I first heard the news 1 hr after it happened on Wed (I live in NYC). By 11:00 pm the story had so many different directions and holes it would have saved so much confusion to wait until the next day (to release info to the public)to get the right facts.

    My heart goes out to his family.

  • The people have the power bondsman. Look at what happened to ET and the Insider recently. They were going to run a video of Ledger at a party but the entertainment industry fought it and apparently won.

    I think TV programs and print media need to make sure their facts are correct before they run a story. No speculation, just the facts. If not, the only people hurt are loved ones.
