Murder by Accident

This chapter focuses on the dire consequences of ignoring intention in live media as well as in literary theory. It comments on the television broadcasting of events such as O. J. Simpson Bronco chase and the Kevorkian-assisted suicide of Thomas Youk as part of an effort to encourage continued debate about the subject of intention. This chapter argues that the concept of intention is important not only in theory but in practice: the practice of theater and the practice of life.

Keywords:   live media, intention, television broadcasting, O.J. Simpson Bronco chase, Kevorkian-assisted suicide, Thomas Youk, theater
