Kevin Ware broken leg: CBS refuses to show replay, CBS won’t replay footage of Kevin Ware’s horrific injury, which occurred during yesterday’s game between Louisville and Duke. The network said they would not replay the footage due to its graphic nature, reports Fox News on April 1.

CBS is being applauded for its refusal to continue to air replays of Ware’s gruesome injury, even when they know that others are airing the footage and that it is widely available online. Even in the immediate aftermath of the injury, CBS was both respectful and judicious in what it aired during its live broadcast. The took care to never show a close-up of the injury and only twice replayed the scene from a cross-court angle.

They did show footage of Ware’s teammates, as well as Duke players and coaches, reacting emotionally to the sight of Ware laying injured on the court. Coach Rick Pitino called his players to Ware’s side before he was taken off the court, but, respectfully, CBS only shot and aired footage from the waist up.
