FOX News broadcasts suicide live

Yep. I just saw it by accident (was changing channels and landed there just in time to see the end). If you missed it a man was apparently in a high speed chase running from police (you just have to broadcast that, right?), and he bailed from his car ran a ways then pulled a gun and shot himself in the head on live national TV. Score another point for our voyeuristic society and the anything for ratings mentality on the news.

I've long thought that reality TV was essentially the modern colleseum.

Reinforcing why we haven't had cable tv for almost 3 years and why I don't watch the news in any other form.
