"[Video] Woman filmed falling off bridge"
Sensitive and tactful as always. Hey you know that tragic attack that happened yesterday? Why not watch a video of one of the victims as it happened! Won't that be entertaining.
It's not news, it's not informative, it's just morbid curiosity and rubber necking. People should be above seeking out content like that and the media should be above promoting it for clicks.
Can't believe BBC posted that video. First time I've seen anything like that from them.
Not sure what's happened to the BBC in the past 12 months but the website has completely fallen to bits. It's full of click-bait and scare stories now alongside the occasional link such as the above which really should not be there. It's vile. BBC has traditionally been my main source of news but have started migrating to others recently.
Yeah I noticed this with the sports section first. It was always just factual and opinion articles but is often now full of rumours and speculation.
