Should we watch?: Kevin Ware and Youtube

Yesterday, my family and I were having a bit of a disagreement.

I’m a curious person, it’s probably why I’m in the media. Also, as such I tend to want to see everything.

Enter the horrific injury suffered by Kevin Ware this weekend.

The Louisville player completely snapped his leg during the Duke game in the middle of play.

ABCNews blurred out his leg when they aired a repeat on World News Tonight Monday night.

Naturally, I went to Youtube and watched. But, my mom and sister didn’t think it was appropriate.

I think that’s what Youtube was invented for: seeing repeats of strange, freak accidents or sports replays.

And this injury was graphic, especially in the video below, when they slo-mow it.

Here’s the video below, but I’m asking what you think: is it inappropriate to rewatch clips of injuries? Was ABC right to blur it?
