Did CNN exploit Whitney Houston ” homegoing” coverage?

Did CNN exploit Whitney Houston ” homegoing” coverage?

Like many I watched CNN’s coverage of Whitney Houston’s “Homegoing” coverage. I was happy that they aired the event because not only was it a great sendoff for Whitney Houston but it gave the entire world a positive view of what goes on in the black church. At the same time some of my friends had the uneasy feeling that CNN was exploiting Whitney’s death for their own benefit. I think it’s a very close call here between exploitation and covering an event. I don’t think it was exploration at all. What do you think?

Give your opinion here: Did CNN exploit Whitney Houston’s “homegomg” coverage?
