Because that's where the fun is

THE PRESS WANTS TO SHOW BODIES from Katrina. It didn’t want to show bodies, or jumpers, on 9/11, for fear that doing so would inflame the public.

I can only conclude that this time around, the press thinks it’s a good thing to inflame the public. What could the difference be?

I could understand amorality that just exploited the dead for its own purposes, but the active hostility of Old Media to the very social structures that permit it to exist is beyond me.
