Newspaper practically destroys privacy0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:34 pm

A front page story gone too far?
 
Many Americans woke up today to a horrific photo on the front of one of America’s most popular newspapers, the “National Enquirer”. This wasn’t a photo of a gory film or a battleground but instead it was a picture of Whitney Houston’s dead body in a coffin. The image was believed to have been taken from inside the private funeral home where Whitney’s closest friends and relatives gathered.
 
The picture showed the star wearing a purple dress with a golden broach – however, it has not yet been confirmed if the photo is 100% accurate. Personally, I think this is sickening. Why are people so obsessed with seeing the dead bodies of infamous or famous people? Thousands of people begged the government to release photos of the dead Osama Bin Laden which was understandable due to the circumstances of the past (not necessarily morally right, but still understandable). Now, people seem to be desperate for pictures of a dead singer… has anyone heard of a thing called privacy?
 
People in Whitney’s hometown (Newark) were shown the newspaper and responded to it. Some of the responses included “That is invading her privacy. That is messed up.”, “I think it’s very disrespectful.” and “I would like to see her, but not like that. Whitney was a great person.” However, some people in support of the picture claimed that “it’s fair because they wouldn’t let people go in and see for themselves.”
 
Let’s hope the employees of the newspaper learn to buck up their ideas and think about morals before profit.
