Reader: 9News hypocritical for trying to block Kyle Dyer dog bite footage
The comments continue to pile up on posts about 9News' Kyle Dyer and her dog-bite injury, including one featuring an admission in a Today show story that the station has been trying to keep attack footage off the Internet because of the traumatizing effect on staffers. This rationale prompted from passionate responses from readers -- including this one.
The same people who go through amazing lengths to report and video tape anything horrific, (the worse, the better it seems to be) happening to ''everyday'' people. Then a horrible story unfolds involving ''one of them,'' a co-worker non the less, not just ''everyday'' people. Suddenly, despite having a SHOCKING HEADLINE STORY and excellent LIVE FOOTAGE of the event, it's not something they feel needs to be shared with the world and broadcast!!! Just goes to show they do know what they're putting people through when they're ''just trying to get the story." They just dont give a shit!!! BASTARDS!
