Abstract

Relationships between the news media and the “news-worthy” bereaved have long been problematic, with the attention of scholars and journalists alike concentrating on the issues of intrusion and harassment during grief. This study begins to consider media approaches from the position of the families themselves and finds that although there is some evidence of anger at intrusion, there is more evidence of harm caused by neglect, inaccuracy and insensitivity. It also finds that some families have felt excluded by the news media from the stories of their relatives’ deaths despite a willingness to engage with journalists.
