I don’t understand why newspapers publish photographs taken at funerals. However, your front page photograph on August 27 was not just unnecessary, it was an entirely inappropriate invasion of the privacy of two young children.
There is no news value whatsoever in publishing a picture of children grieving at the funeral of their father.
Your readers did not gain any knowledge or insight from it.
There will, no doubt, be further news reports on the unfolding story of the sad death of Jason Corbett as proceedings progress through the US court.
However, one would think that the media could allow the young children involved to have some level of privacy as they grapple with the new reality of their lives.
