Scumbag media. Yeah, I’m looking at you Wilma McCorkindale @FairfaxNZ


Children’s funeral strictly policed

Opening paragraph

Tomorrow’s funeral for two Dunedin youngsters gunned down by their father last week is to be strictly policed.

Also in the article

Police say their family is worried about huge media interest in the event, and has asked for respect. A media area has been set up outside.

The family has asked that it and friends not be approached by journalists and not be photographed at close range.

So what is the second sentence in that piece? ?


The family would like some privacy for their funeral.

They especially don’t want it to be a media grief-porn circus.

So Wilma and her employer plaster the exact location and time all over their paper.

Great way to lash back people. ?Very mature.
