Hurting people is good for sales

The news has recently been full of the killing of 5 women in a fairly quiet part of the country.

The children’s news accurately described these as 5 women under 30. Every other news program seems to have called them the 5 prostitutes and mention heroin addiction. Why talk about them like that? How many other people get called by their job title? Do you know the job titles of the tube bombing victims? I wonder how this prejudice helps anyone especially the families and children of these women. They have become victims in appalling circumstances; the media wants to make it worse, presumably because we, the public, lap it up salaciously.
