Ensure that sensitive newspaper articles have trigger warnings and information for advice

I am creating this petition because I think the lack of consideration and awareness in the media in regards to the dangerous effects that sensitive information can evoke in readers and audiences is an important issue that needs to be rectified.
The way that newspapers have handled Avicii's death has inspired me to create this petition, as it is shocking that these tabloids so openly state information that is often not verified, and could majorly affect readers by triggering unwanted and harmful thoughts and actions.
I believe that all articles, whether online or in print, that contain sensitive information that could be triggering to audiences with mental health struggles or destructive emotions such as grief should have a trigger warning placed at the top, to help encourage the safety and well being of readers, as well as providing useful information such as that of helplines and forums.
