Abbotsford incident video

Postby kal » Tue Nov 01, 2016 6:35 pm

Some anger at Global BC for running, albeit partially obscured and audio partly cut, of student video of serious incident this afternoon at Abbotsford high school.

Here's one tweet:

Ok @GlobalBC - showing even part of that video with blurring and audio crossed a line. Done with your station.

Earlier, there has been praise for the station after anchor Chris Gailus said the station wasn't running the video. However, later in the hour the video ran. Even with the obscuring it was very disturbing.

This should generate some discussion by media types.

You assume 'media types' actually watch Global.
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.
