Liking negative newsTuesday, November 23, 2010 at 2:39 | Posted in ethics | Leave a comment
I am sometimes confused to detect what kind of news some people press the like button for on Google Reader. Deaths, accidents and other kind of news that are generally regarded as negative. What is there to like?
For me news about somebody’s death is by definition a sad piece of news. Whatever they did in their life and how much I may have disliked them while they were alive, everybody deservs to die in dignity. Hitting the like button for news like this is just bizarre.
What is the matter with you people?
