How do we report the feelings of suffering?

Bit off my normal patch, but a fascinating read:

Within the swathe of responsible reportage and post analysis, trying to convey an hour and a half of fear, human suffering and “being there” is something journalism in its present form attempts, partially succeeds (to degrees) and also struggles to convey. Within the boundaries of realism and journalism of probity it claims rightly so to make sense – a matter of semiotics and narrative.

David Dunkley Gyimah meditates on ways of capturing the emotion from horrific events beyond traditional journalism.
