As some of you might know, Fox caused some controversy today when a car chase and subsequent suicide aired on their network (not going to post a link in order to comply with Giant Bomb's rules, but you can practically find it anywhere on the internet if, for some reason, you're interested). Shortly afterwards, Shepard Smith and various Fox execs apologized for the footage profusely.
Anyway, I want to hear what you guys think about the issue. Do you believe footage like this should be aired on live television? Do you think censorship should be used to a greater extent to avoid similar issues in the future, and/or that apologies should be made after such events take place? Personally, I've never been a fan of Fox, and I think their apology was unnecessary. Although I do not believe in the deliberate airing of suicides, executions, etc., I have no problem with this kind of footage airing unintentionally (as was the case here); we get a better grip on reality that way. Still, those are just my opinions; I'm more interested in your thoughts about this "scandal."
