This wasn't "reporting" by any stretch of the imagination. It shows just how ridiculous the "news" media has become. This was a bunch of ghouls, rumor mongering at best. The dad is dead, no he's not, the mother was killed in the classroom with her students ... oh wait, she was shot in the face in her bed ... it's Ryan, it's Adam ... well, maybe it IS Ryan... no, it's Adam who might have had Ryan's ID ... girlfriend is missing ... is she dead? It's a rifle, no it's two handguns ... rifle in trunk ... oh wait, now ATF says maybe more than two guns .....who was in the woods? was it Ryan or Adam or a friend?? one shot in the foot, 3 at hospital - what? more are dead? it's 12 .... now it's 18, now it's 20. Oh look, now Obama is crying on TV .... CRYing, I tell you .... let's talk about Obama crying instead of kids massacred ... he's gotta DO something this time ... he will, too - did you see him wipe his eyes?
Rumors and rumors upon more rumors ... it was worse than a circus. The poor parents will have the ghouls after them for the next couple of weeks ... they've already been interviewing traumatized kids .... how did you feel when you saw your mommy? Were you scared? Ghouls and more ghouls. The "news media" is dead in this country - about as dead as decency, morals, values, respect for life and the GOP. (pardon the mini-rant, but I'm just really ticked off right now)
If there was ever an industry that deserved extinction, it is the Mass Media in the U.S. A collection of fool, useful idiots and outright Traitors. There was a time when Treason was a serious crime, is that over? If so, the Republic is dead.
You get the award for post of the day! I like your assessment
The media blasts the picture of this creep into everyone’s TV, and every detail of its life 24/7 , making it world famous , making it a household name.
Does the media realize that this coverage of its life will create copy cats who seek fame or to go out in a blaze of glory ?
My answer: Yes the media know this and purposefully report on it in such a manner as to create more copy cats that seek fame or glory .They could report on the killings but not the identity, nor details of how it was done so as to not encourage copy cats but they do because the media want this to happen so they can empower government, take away our gun rights , take away our freedom, our rights etc. .The media created the situation where now mass shootings are happening very frequently as they didn’t happen with this frequency in previous decades if at all then. Then the media get excited and happy that their work paid off when one happens and they go all crazy reporting it like sharks in a feeding frenzy.
