TV When Famous People Die#1

I notice something with Robert Goulet's death that I've noticed with other famous people. Why does the news always show the latest footage of the person? Robert Goulet was a good looking man and all the tv is showing is footage of when he was 80. Why don't they show him performing when he was younger? They seem to do this with everyone--not show them in their prime, but at the end of their life.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

The Daily News made a bizarre choice in the photo they ran: one of him at opening night at "Victor/Victoria" in the late 90s, a show he had nothing to do with.

In my area, the late night news was airing clips from Camelot and The Ed Sullivan Show.

Yeah I think it's a catch 22. When they run pictures from 1973 people say "Oh, he must have gotten UGLY when he was old!"
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Because they do a fast, lazy search through their increasingly lame and under-supervised archives and grab the first footage they find.

No actual thought behind it.

And most of the newbie underlings searching have no idea who the people are.

I totally flashed on the episode of MTM when her obit files get messed up because she is bored and she makes up the info and then someone dies and Ted reads the fake obit on the air.
