MH17: Sky News offends the standards of any decent society

In a case of birds of a feather flock together; Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott insensitively inserted himself into a national and international tragedy for political advantage during the same period Sky News (part-owned by Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox through its 39% shareholding in BSkyB) was forced to apologise for an appalling breach of community standards:

London: British broadcaster Sky News has apologised after one of its presenters searched through luggage at the crash site of downed flight MH17 live on air.
In a news broadcast on Sunday, presenter Colin Brazier was shown rooting through personal belongings in an opened suitcase at the site, picking up a set of keys before saying: "We shouldn't really be doing this."
