9-11 and the Media

Illustration for article titled 9-11 and the Media

I think recognizing and remembering the events of 9-11-01 is a right and proper and thing to do. I also understand that it is a historical event with many complex aspects to it and news programs and documentaries would want to discuss those. What I don’t understand is why images of the jets hitting the buildings and the buildings coming down need to be in the commercials to be shown over and over again. Why make the instant of death for hundreds or thousands of people the graphic image to represent the show during those quick breaks from American Pickers or whatever?
