Web Exclusive: Should beheading video be seen on TV and allowed on Twitter?

CNNMoney technology correspondent Laurie Segall, BuzzFeed deputy editor-in-chief Shani Hilton and Quinnipiac University journalism department chair Kevin Convey discuss how social networking sites and news outlets should handle the gory video of American journalist Jim Foley's murder.

A few of the highlights:

  · Segall: "This is the first time Twitter's really taken a stance" against a specific piece of graphic propaganda.

  · Convey: "I think it depends entirely in your audience... Obviously, The New York Post thought that its audience would tolerate what it put on page one. And it's no surprise, for example, that The New York Times, knowing its audience, did not."

  · Hilton: BuzzFeed initially decided to link to the beheading video on YouTube, but then the video was taken down. "We don't want to sanitize the Internet," she said. "It's there on the Internet, our audience is on the Internet, so to pretend like there's some artificial wall between our audience and the raw content, it seems a little silly to me."

    Bottom Line- If someone wants to see the video of Jim Foley's tragic demise, they will find it on the internet and view it.
