everest avalanche tragedy special discovery gi 'Everest Avalanche Tragedy': Did Discovery respect the dead Sherpas?

The “Everest Avalanche Tragedy” special on Discovery focuses on the April 18 avalanche that killed 13 climbers on Mount Everest. While the network canceled its planned special on Joby Ogwyn’s live jump off the summit, does the replacement documentary offer proper respect to the Sherpas who died?

You can’t fault Discovery’s attempt to be respectful. The footage focused on the disaster and its aftermath, and it included much from those directly affected. None of the “fun” of the live jump makes its way in.

There’s also the fact that Discovery was making a donation to the Sherpa Family Fund.

But was it enough? Could anything? Vote in the poll below!
