RIP Kobe Bryant And The Media Loves Death Porn.


The death of Kobe Bryant was tragic and felt around the country. There was a dark side to it though. His death showcased TV media, social media and websites obsession with death porn.

What do we mean by death porn?

Racing to release the story before his family knows, showing the burning wreckage of the helicopter crash knowing all 9 victims’ bodies were still there, TV stations in LA showing a truck carrying the wreckage of the helicopter down the freeway.

It’s classless and unnecessary.

Why is it news media coverage appeals to the lowest common denominator?

Mike Russell and Rob Hunter need a beer for this conversation. The Brewmance is ready to try Firestone Walker’s low calorie Hazy IPA called FlyJack. It’s only 96 calories. But, we want to know if it’s full flavored. We put it to The Brewmance Beerometer test.
