You may choose only one
Avert your eyes out of disgust for the media.
Avert your eyes out of disgust for the senseless loss human life.
Avert your eyes for both reasons.
It's horrible but you can't stop watching.
On some level it's appealing, you want to see more.

the media is pissing me off a bit by being so sensationalist, with headlines like "coast of death."

come on, can the media have a heart just once?

anyways, it is horrible to see some of the footage, but I watch to keep updated on what is likely humankind's worst tragedy.

its bad, but worst tragedy? come on.....its just the latest tragedy

the videos and pics and such are disturbing....but on some level, i enjoyed watching them. now before you all get your panties all in a bunch, its not like a sick twisted i like to see death kind of enjoyment....but rather a, holy shit look at what just happened, thats crazy type of enjoyment.....if its even enjoyment at all. i would rather call it curiosity....

how's your WOW?

yeah, I guess that was likely exagerrated, I meant more in recent history.

100,000+ dead, it's bad. It may be the worst natural tragedy caused by an earthquake but I would say that the black plague and the flu epidemic that killed 40 million people in the early 20th century were worse natural tragedies.

I would argue that it's possibly the worst natural tragedy caused by a tsunami.

worlds worst earthquakes

Worse than any natural disaster that has ever hit mankind, unless you buy the Biblical stuff about the Great Flood.

Edit: Nevermind. I forgot about the black plague.

Oh, I didn't mean it that way. I'm well aware of the 110,000+ death toll. I get all my current events online. What I meant was, is the media coverage on TV really that shameless to warrant such a poll?
