  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
too sad by kazzzz on 18 August 2006 6:50am
For the whole day today at work, I've been staring at the Herald Sun, our leading newspaper,displayed in front of my counter. The front cover is awful. Huge headline reads "I killed her", with a full page pic of JonBenet Ramsay, and a picture of the man who's admitted to killing her.
It's quite heartbreaking.
I've been selling these newspapers all day and normally people comment on the cover. Not one person has commented today.

I wish they would just let that poor little girl rest in peace. She was exploited in life and then unbelievably exploited in death. It appears that the guy may not have done it so, I'm sure, the circus will continue on for many months. I've just given up on the mainstream media.

I agree, let the poor kid rest in peace.

Such is why I'm not going into news reporting(I much prefer special interest/culture)when I complete my journalism degree, to avoid the circus that exists in that line of work. Let it go already...let her rest in peace.
