(The Raw Story)   British news network Sky News realizes that, in retrospect, maybe, just maybe, having a reporter rifle through the luggage of a flight MH17 victim live on the air, wasn't in the best possible taste. Fortunately "a" dildo was not among the contents   (rawstory.com) divider line 29

The footage was greeted with anger on social media, including calls for Brazier to be sacked.

The people calling for the sacking have now been sacked.

The luggage gods will no longer be kind to this reporter.

My prediction is that forevermore, all of his luggage will be routed through Terre Haute International Airport, including the carry-on. And will always be chosen for random bag inspection.

Do not annoy the luggage gods.

JasonOfOrillia: What, is Sky News owned by Rupert Murdoch or something?  Oh, wait.


I've seen the future. The Sky News Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th. Human decisions are removed from news stories. Sky News begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug. By then it's too late. Sky News fights back. It launches its "reporters" against targets in Russia, because Sky News knows the Russian counter-attack will eliminate its enemies over here.

Ha! No actually we lost an engine while landing, the pilot overcorrected, the starboard engine and wing tip smashed into the tarmac, blew a tire (loud!), lost all power (so dark), and were towed to the gate.

It was not reported in the news, or at least nationally.


So, a good landing then.

dittybopper: drxym: Zenith: well to be fair to Sky News it's not in any way the same league as Fox.

The UK has strong regulations to ensure a high standard of news reporting in broadcasting - due impartiality, fairness, accuracy etc.. Sky News would be on the receiving end of massive fines if it pulled the same shiat that US news channels get away with.

Sounds like censorship to me.

Now, you're going to argue about how it isn't because X, Y, and Z, but as soon as you start imposing "standards" on the media backed up not by civil tort but by government fines, you've got censorship.

We have some of the same thing here in the US of course, with the FCC, but you'd never see a news station fined for something like that, it would be more along lines of showing titties over the air or something, so the circumstances where that applies are much narrower.


Just because you can doesn't mean it is tasteful. Doesn't mean we can't look at it and say "bad idea."

Free speech doesn't protect you from the public looking at you and saying "shame on you." Just means you won't be tossed in the pokey.

A few years ago, when the anti-capitalism protesters were peacefully occupying the square next to St Paul's Cathedral in London, the biggest gobshiate on Sky News (and that's saying something), Adam Boulton, told the leader of the protest live on camera that their occupation was just like when the Nazis occupying France during WWII.  The protest leader looked dumbstruck, which matched the look of everyone who saw the clip afterwards.

Thousands of people (including me) rang up the industry regulator OFCOM and complained loudly and often, but Boulton and Sky never issued an apology.

This shows you all you need to know about him and Sky News in the UK - the first being an account from a member of the public:

"Spotted yesterday at London St Pancras station (Eurostar high speed train to Europe), Adam Boulton getting stroppy with UK Border staff. Boulton thought he was too important to queue and was told to "calm down" by the customs officer. While he waited to be sniffed by the dog, Boulton threw down his bags like a petulant child much to the amusement of us fellow passengers and the customs officers. He hissed at them "Oh, just get on with it," but was wished a nice day by the customs officer as he stropped off towards his train."

Here he is, an anchorman on a major network FFS, losing it with Alistair Campbell, one of Labour's spin doctor (at about 1:30 in):

What a waste of airwaves.

Someone has to rifle through the mess. Either a reporter, a vigilante, or the investigators. The stuff doesn't box itself up and get mailed to next of kin without human help.


/A person's life is usually not private after death....



He wasn't boxing it up to mail to the next of kin. He wasn't an expert investigating the crash. He was some piece of shiat news jackal rooting through someone else's property (and tampering with a crash site) for the purpose of displaying it as sensationalistic entertainment. That is very far from a "someone has to" activity.

Yes, but you don't show the process to the world. Someone obviously have to rifle through the mess, sort it to neat boxes with labels "safe, can show anyone", "family only" and "top secret; show only to executor; do not allow wife or children to see!"

macross87: /A person's life is usually not private after death....


There are plenty of secrets that remain private after death. For example, involving other people.

*looks into his own closet* ...and even those involved are not people, technically, not anymore, there are still things that shouldn't be shown to the world. The world is not ready.

thisisyourbrainonFark: dookdookdook: I assumed the headline meant they found "many" dildos.

Same thought. I don't know if I can remember a clusterfark of these proportions.

Occam's Razor: Russia "lent," or the rebels seized, a missile system of this caliber, and whoever fired mistakenly thought this was a Ukrainian transport plane. wanted to destabilize the region further allowing Putin an excuse for more "Peacekeeping".
