I agree. I find it difficult to see people in jeopardy - even if it is make-believe. But I also find it hard to watch Reality TV as it makes me uncomfortable people being humiliated publically.

Hard for me is to hear of violence and hate crimes in the news. It makes me furious.

In addition though I hate it when news outlets show on site footage of such things and accidents on the television. Like we really need to see the crumpled car in a fatality. Back in April we had a horrific bus crash killing over a dozen boys and maiming countless others. For months now in what seems like every week the news trots out the footage of the appalling accident scene. Do we really need that? Is it reall necessary? Ugh. It really bothers me.
