||The inequality of death: how news coverage can dehumanise us||Last week, the media was swept up in coverage of the horrific on-screen murder of two US television reporters. Meanwhile, the discovery of the bodies of 50 asylum seekers inside the hold of a boat in the Mediterranean Sea barely made the headlines. Europe correspondent Philip Williams contemplates how the way people die - and who's there to cover it - can determine how we often humanise some murder victims and care less about others.||29 8 2015||Free||View In iTunes|
