I don't think I have often seen nastier pictures than those of Press photographers clustering round the relatives of those on the lost airliner in order to get good pictures.

A good thing there were Press photographers there to photograph the Press photographers ...

Exactly, Father.

For some time it has bothered me that the Press are so often ‘in the faces’ of people after an accident or disaster, clamoring to get their reactions with inane questions such as: “How do you feel…?”

I have the same sentiment about reporters in locker rooms after sporting events. It shouldn’t be allowed and people should be given space and time to compose themselves. Likewise photographers, instead of going to someone’s aid, have to ‘get the shot’ first.

Not quite the example of the Good Samaritan.
