I don't suppose I'm the only TV viewer who is becoming more annoyed by the day when watching "The News".
We have a reporter, usually looking fairly dishevelled and surrounded by rubble and describing the latest atrocity. Then comes the "we can't show you these scenes as they are too distressing " - for which I read " we are trying to make you aware of what is going on but we don't think too graphic an image is good for you. We are seasoned reporters in a bad world but you are "the public" - hence we cannot risk upsetting you".
If you are reporting war, then for heavens sake report it -graphically - forget this "nanny knows best" thing. Make us cringe in horror and go to bed thinking about things.
