Today I want to discuss the recent television coverage of events in Haiti.  I have been distressed at footage showing women giving birth in the streets with minimal care.  I found one particular news story completely voyeuristic and disturbing; it showed absolute chaos with women screaming and doctors panicking.  I guess it highlights what is happening out there and if it helps to raise much needed funds that is good, but I can’t help feeling that we didn’t need to see such graphic detail of an intensely difficult and private moment for the women.
