I understand your feelings, but you are quite wrong.
A house fire IS newsworthy. A suicide IS newsworthy. A house fire combined with a suicide is VERY newsworthy. Anything that creates public attention or alarm, or uses public resources IS newsworthy.
There is a difference between reporting a newsworthy event and creating entertainment from a newsworthy event. I don't see a thing WWAY did to entertain anyone with this reporting.
There is anger in your post but I think it's grossly misdirected.
