As journalists, its our job to show what's happening, not tailor it to preferences. If there are dead bodies waiting in line to be cremated, if people are dying without a bed, that's what we'll report/ show with proper advisories. Can't paintbrush reality because its distressing.
These calls to not show #cremations in #India on news is just another ploy to divert attention of from the #reality that crematoria are running full with people being denied dignity in #death. The #COVID19India situation is horrible and it has to be reflected on the news.
Yes its #depressing and the person reporting from the crematorium is not enjoying it. But that's what our management of the pandemic has led to. See what the situation is, fix responsibility and remember all this when you elect your leaders.

@secupp 1. It greatly bothers me when #Reporters say that #GOPLawmakers #Privately #Complained about @MattGertz...remember they did the same for the #FormerGuy......but no one talks publicly! Perhaps if the #Lawmakers & #Journalists hadn't covered.....
@secupp @MattGertz 2. for #MattGaetz, the #FormerGuy & others the #Scumbags wouldn't have done as much damage as they did. #Journalists have gotten too chummy w/the #Politicians they are suppose to report on! By hiding how #Incompetent the #FormerGuy & his staff were the #GOPLawmakers & the.....
@secupp @MattGertz 3. reporters are complicit in the deaths of 550,169 Americans! Allegations of #Gaetz's behavior while serving in FL's House first surfaced in 2013. Nothing was done then & it looks like #Gaetz's disgusting behavior only got worse.....

Their family home (a wooden hut) was burnt down & moved to a squatter area. He grew up w/o toys. A bowl of instant noodles to be shared among 3ppl as supper. His dad worked so hard as a taxi driver & finally be able to send him to Australia to pursue his study...
He studied hard to become a commercial pilot. Unfortunately his #father diagnosed w/colon cancer. The targeted therapy cost him $30k/month. He can afford it but this got him thinking, what abt other #HK ppl? He wants to do sth for #HongKong. He then become a #politician...

L’art.24 de la #LoiSecuritaireGlobale va être une épreuve cruciale après 2 ans d’une crise sans précédent pr les #journalistes. L’occasion de prouver à nos lecteurs que nous défendons la liberté d’expression/droit à l’info et pas nos « privilèges » de caste. L’occasion de... ↘️
L’occasion de renouer des liens distendus par les injonctions éco. ds lesquels on se débat au quotidien... À force de travail ce sont bien les #reporters de terrain qui ont permis le maintien/restauration d’un lien ténu entre #journalistes et population durant le mvt des GJ...↘️
Il suffit de voir la réception par le public du travail de @davduf, l’accueil réservé à @RemyBuisine, les fan-club des @T_Bouhafs et @GaspardGlanz pour comprendre le rôle crucial qu’on eu ces journalistes indés sur l’ensemble de la profession.

Black LA man, FW Bryant, was convicted for a 1997 "attempted simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling" & sentenced to no parole b/c of prior petty theft convictions. 5 white men on LA Supreme Court voted vs reviewing the sentence. #BlackLivesMatter nbcnews.com/news/us-news/h…
#Louisiana taxpayers have spent $518,667 to punish Bryant for attempting to steal a pair of clippers, Chief Justice Bernette Johnson, the only black justice, notes & compares the sentence to post-Civil War laws that aimed to "re-enslave African Americans."
#Prison activists/#reporters: I couldn't find Bryant in LA's prisoner locator. Says "high-profile" people aren't included. Wanna bet he's working for free in the fields at #Angola Plantation-LA State Pen (or has in the past)? @JeffreyGoldberg

What did you gain?

It's a simple question that I want to ask media houses that thought - and are still thinking - it's a good practice to terminate employees on the spot. The editor, board, management & HR all are collectively responsible but no one would reply.
Who will question the media, which prides itself in the power of questioning it has. Frankly, it doesn't matter if you say in private that I'm sorry and this shouldn't have happened. The fact remains it happened and it happened under your watch.
Were these the morals, ethics & values that the organisation was built on? Didn't you feel proud when the reporters brought you a story that revealed the unethical practices at various establishments, most notably the government! You would have put it on the front page too!
