How is my comment insensitive? I think you are just thinking of it from a numbers aspect. I'm not saying that it's devastating because the guy was a celebrity. A homeless man could have died today and I would still feel sorry for the loss of life.

I don't hold the loss of one life over or below someone else. They are all equally sad situations imo.

Mate, it's alright, I understand what you mean but it's just the 'overshadowed' comment that I don't like. Journalists have to think what is more newsworthy and I'm afraid that has to be the disaster in Japan. The death of Nate Dogg would barely make a national paper.

oh of course, the disaster in Japan is more newsworthy and will sell more papers, get more attention from viewers.

Yes, basically mate. The Journalism industry like all other industries has to make money and that comes above anything else, might sound sad but it's the cold, harsh truth/reality of it all. I study Journalism in Chester Uni btw!

I don't know how you gathered that I give people's lives value, but the fact is the death of a musician isn't anywhere near as important as the complete devastation of whole communities. Saying that the two are equally tragic is probably one of the most idiotic, ignorant things I've ever heard, but I'm honestly not surprised at all that you expressed that sentiment.

"If one person dies, it's a tragedy. If thousands of people die, it's a statistic." - please, never perpetuate this frame of mind...

Although, rest in peace and whatnot. Haven't heard much of him, but he was always nice to listen to when featured in some songs I used to listen to. Best wishes to his family.

you and a few others still don't understand my point. it's not even about the rapper. If you read the rest of my post you would understand that I value all life the same. It could be a homeless man on the street that died and I would still mourn his death why don't you guys see that?

Whatever.

How about the loss of thousands of lives against one life? Cause that's what happened.

EDIT: Also applies to the post you just made.
