Sad news. Can't think of anyone who hasn't been touched by this brave little chap.

Yes but is this really the kind of news that the BBC should be making their lead item?

It just looks like more of the dumbing down of news coverage that we keep seeing.

So brave this young man has been, battling a rare form of cancer always with a smile on his face. Pretty much everyone in the country took this kid into their hearts and he has been an absolute inspiration everyone. Seeing him mascot Sunderland and England was brilliant and Match of the day giving him the goal of the month was a nice touch. Jermain Defoe has been amazing with him as well, and should be commended. Never seeking publicity for everything he's done for Bradley and his family, just doing it out of love for the kid. I don't know if you have kids or not Xmiles but this is a pretty heartless post in my opinion. If this was a celebrity of any kind it would be headline news, so I don't see why this young man should be any different. This isn't dumbing down of the news, this is recognising the sheer bravery of a 6 year old in the face of massive adversity. 

RIP Bradley, a fighter to the end.

Yes I do have children and I resent the suggestion that I am heartless merely because I question the prominence given to news items like this. I am not questioning the sadness attached to any child dying. What I find disturbing is that this particular death is only more newsworthy than all the other children dying today simply because of the publicity it has received.

I don't disagree entirely. Lots of children go through stuff like this without recognition of the trials they have faced. To merely suggest this is just dumbing down of the news though is just bollocks imo. Aside from that, it's a whole other debate that can be had on another thread, without using a child like Bradley as a case in point.
