I was watching Ch7 News Brisbane (early in the 6:00pm broadcast on 26th September, 2019) when they aired a news article of a woman who had been murdered, showing the deceased de facto "carer" giving a sobbing interview (and thus a consensual exchange). Then, apparently not satisfied, they showed footage taken at some distance of the instant the woman (the carer) was told that the woman (who the news described as like her daughter) had been murdered. The elderly lady literally collapsed in shock and grief for the morbid benefit of the audience. The woman was stripped of any dignity just because Channel Seven had 'good' footage. As they already had shown the sobbing interview, showing the moment the dear lady was told her ward had been killed had absolutely no news value whatever and as such was pure exploitation of a woman's understandable grief.

Our family are avid viewers of Channel 7 however in recent times during horrific home and world events the coverage has become ghoulish with absolutely no compassion for the victims, families and your viewers including children who are left traumatised by unnecessary images of these victims. Horrific images i.e. would be (R) rated, worthy only of horror movies not for 6.00 o,clock news. Channel 7 has a Duty of Care to viewers i.e. the public not to be transfering trauma to the public via their transmission. It is too late to change channels after you see it without choosing to. Then to go on to report the burials is scummy. Give these people dignity in death even if you have none in your journalism to give the the news reader. For the cameras to show and try to angle behind the white barriers erected is sick and to show it is unforgivable. Muck raking Channel 7. Lift your game.
