oh, those funny, funny criminals

You would think reporting crime stories would be interesting work but reporters seem to need to spice up their stories.

In a story about a drug conviction, the reporter entertains himself by making fun of the man sentenced to prison. The story he wrote is oh-so-funny with jokes about the man being a bad rapper, including examples of his bad lyrics. It's a knee-slapper.

When did it become acceptable for news reporters to ridicule the people in the stories they cover? This man's life has just been sent down the crapper and the reporter uses it as entertainment.

I find myself wondering which profession is more honorable--drug dealer or news reporter?
