This metafilter thread
about the Golden Bridge suicide documentary stayed in my mind for weeks after I read it. It was haunting.
Yesterday the Langara Journalism review
from Vancouver published a very interesting article
about responsible coverage of suicide in the media, notably after a mediatic chaos ensuing the suicidal attempts of two persons wanting to jump off one of Vancouver's bridges last fall.
An excellent read for anyone tired of sensationalist horror stories, the consequences they can trigger, and the lack of taste they are treated with.
