Really, news worthy?

A bunch of photos of a funeral had ended up in the news recently of a man who had passed. His family wanted him to be seen in his favourite place - in front of the TV, with a beer, smokes etc. Sounds pretty nice, and a great way for a person you loved to be remembered. But would you really want to see the pictures? I'm not talking about a far away photo that shows the set up but I mean a foot or so away of the face?

Dead people and death photos maybe good for the family, but I'm sorry putting them in the news paper or on a message board (as entertainment) is just totally in-fucking-appropriate.

It's another one of those, I've been overruled so whatever...
