Patrick Murphy each easily won their Senate primaries Tuesday, setting up a November showdown that’s guaranteed to be nasty as each party grapples for a majority in the chamber.

Suicide is a topic that the news media, so often accused of exploiting misery, handle with unique reserve. Most newsrooms don’t cover suicides at all unless they happen in a public place or involve someone of public stature. The standoffishness is odd, since suicides are often violent deaths and, by law, are serious crimes – both categories that normally qualify as newsworthy. Nevertheless, under the unwritten canons of U.S. journalism, suicide is an intimately personal matter, and journalists steer clear of it. Coverage is avoided as intrusive and likely to cause needless torment to the survivors.
