NBC Sensitivity Crashes

If anyone watched the Emmys last night, there was a intro parady of the series Lost which featered a plane crash. NBC decided to air this intro even though there was a tragic plane crash in Kentucky at 6:30 that morning in which 49 out of 50 people died.

Many people are stunned and offended that NBC would be so insensitive to air such a clip on such a day.

Personally I hardly find it surprising. After all, why should it be surprising? When it comes to television, hollywood and the media in general, God is not sacred, religion or Churches are not sacred, human body parts are not respected, unborn children are disregarded, marriage is degraded, ad nauseum. If the fundamentals of life such as marriage, children, faith and sexuality are not respected and regarded with some dignity, why should anyone expect the industry to suddenly regard the deaths of people in a tragic accident with any respect or integrity? Anyone who thinks that this industry such as it has been would find anything beyond the almight $$$ sacred has not been paying attention.

My sincere condolences to all those who lost loved ones in the Kentucky plane crash. God be with you.
