Feeding on soldiers' families' grief...
Media will not be allowed into CFB Trenton to cover this week's repatriation of six Canadian soldiers killed Sunday in Afghanistan, The Intelligencer has learned.Thank goodness for this.
"Some of the family members of the fallen soldiers have requested that no media be allowed on the tarmac and we are accommodating that request," Second Lt. Jennifer Jones of the base's public affairs office told The Intelligencer Tuesday morning.
If I lost a child, under any circumstances, the last thing I would welcome is someone looking to make a buck off my misery.
I'm sure the media can report this sad event without having to wrench a ten second sound-bite out of some grieving mother's soul.
