The ultimate give-away line of first world war reportage.
Does the delicacy of our viewing habits need protecting?
Presumably anyone choosing to tune-in to world news should expect something a tad unpleasant. It’s not as if black clouds smouldering from the wreckage of collapsed buildings can be mistaken for Come Dine With Me.
I’d appreciate the same warnings being issued in advance of all programmes featuring Stephen Fry or Bono.
I’ve seen Sky News and the BBC do it a lot ‘Viewers may find some of these scenes distressing’.
Really? At the crash site of a Boeing 777 filled with adults and children? Distressing? I don’t know what they think we are watching for.
Exactly. And as far war reporting, surely we have some responsibility to watch. Before returning to violently killing some bad mutha fuckahs on the WiFi.
