However hilarious it is (and it is hilarious), I cannot help but wonder how ethical the popular Web site FailBlog.org is. It is a forum for people to post embarrassing, hilarious, awkward, uncomfortable situations.
I am guilty of viewing this Web site often and laughing, but since joining a media ethics class– I cannot help but wonder, is it ethical? Not all of the posts on the FailBlog focus on people or even show people. But some do. They show people falling, hurting themselves or embarrassing themselves and then it is uploaded for a large audience to laugh at.
What are your thoughts?
