Ashok Malik, a writer for the Indian Express seems to think that media conglomerates in the West hold a different mirror to the current disaster in South and South East Asia. He feels networks like CNN and the BBC are more prone, and somewhat comfortable, showing corpses of brown bodies on their telecasts; something they deliberately shied away from after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center or The Pentagon in the interest of preserving the privacy of those families who were grieving.
