Judy Finnegan, 71, previous host of This Morning with husband Richard Madeley, has said in her column that she writes for the Daily Express that TV news is just “wallowing in tragedy”.
Judy accused them of “non stop images of raw mourning and loss” Judy has also questioned the amount of live interviews with bereaved relatives. Saying it only leads to “despair” for those watching.
She said ” I’m sorry to say this but sometimes it feels uncomfortably like the news is wallowing in these tragedies, not simply reporting them”. She went on to say. ” do we really need to be shown all these interviews of distressed relatives? We all know what grief does to us, it makes us cry and despair”.
