[Paul Lismore] WHEN MURDEROUS ACTS OF TERRORISM BECOME THE PREFERRED SHORT CUT FOR 'LIKES' BY A NEWSPAPER...


Rédigé par Paul Lismore le Vendredi 15 Mars 2019



Vreman ena bez dan sa ggt pays la! A terrible sequence of premeditated atrocities takes place in New Zealand and so far we know that 49 innocent people at prayer were butchered mercilessly and several more badly injured. 

You have to be an incredibly cold hearted bastard not to feel terrible anger at this horrific outrage and enormous sympathy for the victims and their families. 

But what makes it worse, much worse, is when a newspaper decides to publish the video that the homicidal maniac had filmed during the carnage. Sunday Times joins a long list of rags who act like vultures in order to boost its readership by publishing the most despicably callous and murderous videos imaginable. Shame on you!

Of course, Sunday Times will raise the convenient flag of 'duty to inform', when we know that our newspapers rarely, if ever, inform us about the things that really matter to our lives as Mauritians. This has nothing to do with the duty to inform but entirely to do with the mercenary need to exploit every misery in order to attract more readers. Shame on you!

I don't need to see skulls being blown apart by a bullet from a psychopath in order to know that this is an extreme act of cowardice and butchery. Nor do I need to see live images of men, women, and children being mown down by a terrorist to be sure that this is a terrible outrage. It is even worse when Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, the country that has suffered this atrocity, has urged us not to see this vile video filmed by the terrorist.

But Sunday Times apparently knows better than the people directly suffering from this evil act. Shame on you! I hope instead of attracting readers, many piss on your toilet paper of a newspaper and walk away in disgust!
