As someone said in here a few days ago, sport is more important for some than breathing

I don't think BBC Breakfast got the balance right this morning regarding the Japanese typhoon. 18 dead and thousands of people's lives ruined, followed by Ben T and Sally N laughing at the footage of the Japanese rugby team negotiating a flooded staircase, followed by 'thank god the match today is going ahead'

It seems to have been reported widely in the context of the Rugby World Cup rather than a natural disaster. WalesOnline has the headline "Rugby World Cup Latest: 18 dead", which makes it sound like a particularly brutal match.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
