Do you think the news should have to pay to play the Walter Scott video?

    I just don't want to see the videos anymore period. Not on TV, on my timeline or my Facebook feed. Seeing death just desensitizes you to it imo and white folks™ already don't give a damn about us dying.

    I think that some compensation should be given, even as a donation. That man just moved a mountain. He should be compensated. I don't want to deal with the ethical nor moral issues in it. Cut him a check

    I thought the cameraman gave the recording to the family in the first place, to avoid all of this. For him to suddenly start appearing places negates that - though I give him no ill will for doing so. If he worked for one of these news networks, he would be receiving a salary. There is no "for the good of society" when a man has to eat - even moreso when one has a credible threat from a formidable opposition. This is not random video of the snow falling - this is actual news. That said, I don't believe that a "pay per play" policy is as appropriate as providing a fixed fee, based on newsworthiness.
