While television news programs rarely show horrific war footage, on the Internet you can see as much of the carnage as you can handle.
Sociologist and occasional Atlantic Tech contributor Zeynep Tufekci has written that she herself has had to stop looking at graphic photographs and footage, but that its availability is a good thing:
I am firmly of the opinion that the massive censorship of reality and images of this reality by mainstream news organizations from their inception has been incredibly damaging. It has severed this link of common humanity between people "audiences" in one part of the world and victims in another. This censorship has effectively relegated the status of other humans to that of livestock, whose deaths we also do not encounter except in an unrecognizable format in the supermarket.
