Media's roll in mass shootings
If mentioned to us, most of us would know the names of many of these mass shooters, yet other than Mrs. Giffords I do not know the names of any victims. Where is the medias roll in these shooting, do crazy people crave the type notoriety the 24/7 news cycle can give them?
Shouldn't we study this, even baseball broadcast cut away when a fan runs onto the field! Do I need to know the name of a nut case that kills people, no! Do I need to see what he looks like no! Does it sell.... I'm saying yes!! Does it cause more shootings, I don't know but I think it should be looked in to!
Re: Media's roll in mass shootings
The word is role...
But that's insignificant..
Give us Dirty Laundry.
We, the people, eat it up, lick the plate, and ask for more...
And, the crazies say "Izzat all you got? I can top that!
