Coverage of Spain Train crash, 90killed

Speaking of representations, it is interesting to look at CNN images of the train crash showing bereaved families, individuals distraught, and multiple pictures of two people hugging. Compared to pictures of train crashes in India, which would show angry people, carnage and debris, and large crowds. Less directly, images of terrorist attacks also show a lot of carnage, blood and destruction. It really is amazing how few shots of the actual destruction are shown and how much focus is given to individual and couple mourners. I can definitely see how different reactions are required from these different representations of similar events.
