    Media's ownership of mass shootings began here, IMO. While mass shootings occurred before Columbine, few, if any were as publicized and sensationalized. Since then, any nobody who wants to become nationally famous while getting even with anybody and everybody who has ever given offense, real or imagined, can do so. There is a storyboard that has long been in place. Media saturation is directly related to how closely the particular shootings follow it.

    Very disturbing article. Not sure how anyone could get the media to cooperate in not publicizing these events but if we could it would seem to have some pretty dramatic results.

    The media giants thrive on mass shootings and the adoration of the left.

    Thanks, Mike. So, we have a ratio of 5 very liberal mainstream media companies to one quasi-conservative media company. I'd say we're in deep kimchee. This is the type of thing that makes me so fearful for the future of the U.S.

    The media giants have been formulating human thought and behavior for a very long time.

    I think the media is anal enough already without adding more.

    Remember 9/11, when airplanes flying into buildings video saturated the airwaves for days? Yeah, like that.
