  • Disrupting the Infamy Game: How to Change the Coverage of Mass Shootings

    Anyone remember a fourth-century-BC Greek named Herostratus? He's the guy whose name history has recorded solely on account of his having burned down the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, in 356 BCE -- so that history would record his name. In a 1993 paper called "Ethical Problems of Mass Murder Coverage in the Mass Media, published in the Journal of Mass Media Ethics, Clayton Cramer explored a variation on the question my colleague Robert Wright is rightly asking now, following Roger Ebert's New York Times op-ed on Friday: Given that intense media...

    The mainstream media met our level of expectation last week by immediately – and wrongly – identifying the shooter in Aurora, Colo., as a member of the Tea Party. Congratulations to ABC for living down to what we have come to expect of the MSM – bash first, ask questions later. But wasn’t the presumed shooter more right than left? Wasn’t he one of those religious fanatics? After all, his parents attend church...

    New York Daily Mag ^ | July 23, 2012 | Joe Carscarelli
    During the chaotic aftermath of the Colorado shooting on Friday, a particularly chilling moment came when ABC News spoke to the mother of suspect James Holmes by phone. The network reported that the woman, reached in California, "told ABC News her son was likely the alleged culprit, saying, 'You have the right person.'" The article also said that Holmes's mother was "apparently speaking on gut instinct" when she "immediately expressed concern her son may be involved in the shooting death of at least 12 people overnight." Today, she disputed that account, claiming her quotes were misused. If true, that would...

    Arlene Holmes, the mother of Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes, has suggested that ABC News mischaracterized her when it reported that her initial statement to the reporter, "you have the right person," was a reference to her son. "This statement is to clarify a statement made by ABC media. I was awakened by a call from a reporter by ABC on July 20 about 5:45 in the morning. I did not know anything about a shooting in Aurora at that time," Holmes said in a statement this afternoon, read to the national press by attorney Lisa Damiani. "He asked...

    Gun Control: Colorado is a concealed-carry state, as a noted film critic points out, but so was Virginia when a college campus there was racked by violence. Like the school, the theater chain was also "gun-free." In December 2007, two church members were shot to death and three others injured after a gunman opened fire outside the New Life Church in Colorado Springs as Sunday services were wrapping up. That tragedy could have been much worse, but the gunman was shot by a church security officer and was found dead when police arrived at the scene. On April 22 of...

However, in this new tragedy at the Aurora Theater Dark Night shooting, one of the victims was a 22 year old woman from my church, Petra Anderson (pronounced Pay-tra). Petra went to the movies with two young friends who are biking across America. You and I have been inundated with news about what happened next. A joyful movie...

Now students who meet the state’s qualifications to carry a concealed weapon can do so on campus. “University campuses are places of work and study,”...

So the right to bear arms under the 2nd amendment - - written at a time when citizen militias might be needed to fend off the British or a foreign power intent on undermining the new Republic - - shouldn't mean someone has the right to barge into a crowded theater, open fire and slaughter people with powerful guns and ammunition obtained legally.

    “The Dark Knight Rises” is on track to earn $160 million after a shooting that left 12 dead and 58 wounded at a midnight screening of the Batman sequel in Colorado. Hollywood studios joined “Dark Knight Rises” distributor Warner Bros. in publicly withholding their box-office numbers for the weekend. Box-office tracking service Rentrak also did not report figures this weekend. An opening of $160 million would give the 2-D “Dark Knight Rises” the third-highest opening ever after the 3-D films “The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” with $169.2 million

    Within minutes of the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting, Brian Ross of ABC News reports to George Stephanopoulos that a man named James Holmes, same first and last name as the reported suspect, is listed as member of a local Tea Party group. Ross speculates, with any proof to connect them, that this James Holmes is the suspect. A search on PeopleSmart.com finds no fewer than 12 individuals sharing that same first and last name. Mark Steyn, substituting for Rush Limbaugh on the Rush Limbaugh Show today, reports that the James Holmes who is listed with the local Tea Party group...

    A young couple who'd recently moved from New Mexico and were attending the Aurora, Colo., midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" with their children said they had planned to sit in the front row by the exit in which a gunman entered and allegedly killed at least 12 people. "Where the gunman came in, we were going to sit right there," Jamie Rohrs, 25, told ABC News today. "God was definitely with us and watching over us." Rohrs said that before the movie started, he and his fiancee, Patricia Legarreta, also 25, opted for seats in the second-floor balcony....

    “Headquartered in Plano, TX, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry with 459 theatres and 5,181 screens in the U.S. and Latin America as of March 31, 2012,” their website reports. Cinemark owns the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, scene of last night’s mass shooting. Cinemark doesn’t allow anyone other than law enforcement officers to carry legal firearms in their theaters. The ban hadn’t escape the attention of some of Cinemark’s law-abiding, gun-toting customers—even before last night’s homicidal frenzy. Make the jump for the story of a Cinemark patron ejected from the cinema...
  • Time to Call Dems on Using Death to Advance their Politics

    Folks, it's time to start calling the Dems what they are...ghouls hovering over the graves and caskets of the dead, trying to use their deaths to advance their political agenda. They tried to use the Jared Lee Loughner shootings to justify silencing political speech... They tried to use the death of Russ Carnaham in Missouri to win a Senate seat... They tried to use the death of Osama Bin Laden to transform the Kenyan into a badass... They are trying to use the deaths in Aurora yesterday to advance their gun control agenda. And in possibly the worst display of...

    The Christian Diarist ^ | July 20, 2012 | JP
    A piece I wrote last weekend on Christian businesses prompted a snarling response from a reader who clearly was no follower of the Son of God. “Hail Satan!” it closed. I thought nothing of the comment, chalking it up to the hostility Christians sometimes face from non-believers. That is, until I saw the news reports of the horrific shootings today at a suburban Denver movie theater. The suspected triggerman, 24-year-old James Holmes, will be described variously as “troubled” or “unstable” or “detached from reality.” But I am convinced that the young killer was operating under satanic influence. Of course, to...

    Principles & Policy ^ | July 20th, 2012
    Shortly after midnight, gunman James Holmes attacked a crowded movie theater screening The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado. Holmes, age 24, is accused of murdering 12 people and wounding 71 more with a canister of tear gas and multiple firearms, according to the most recent reports. He is currently in police custody after surrendering to authorities without a fight once they arrived on the scene. While I believe strongly in the importance of the “innocent until proven guilty” doctrine of the American justice system, there’s pretty much zero doubt that Holmes committed this crime, so I won’t bother to...
  • NIGHTLY NEWS: DID ANY OF THEM MENTION THE BLACK BLOC ANARCHISTS OR OWS?

    This horrible event in Colorado dominated the evening news, of course. I flipped channels tonight watching bits and pieces of each of the Alphabet networks, NBC, CBS, ABC. I did not watch PBS. My apologies for expecting anything at all from PRAVDA, but I don't get cable. They kept mentioning that "no one knows the motive." But, I am curious as to whether ANY of them are reporting on the Black Bloc cult within the Occupy Wall Street crowd, the theory that was proposed this morning by the private investigator from Florida. I didn't hear anything about that at all....
