How The Media Should Handle Mass Murderers
 Part of channel(s): Connecticut School Shooting (current event)

Repost or not, everyone needs to watch this. It holds just as true in America as it does in Europe. Today has been a media circus in America, and I imagine elsewhere as well.

  • Let this be a teaching for news outlets. Cut the 'wall-to-wall coverage'. Stop glamourizing sick fucks who kill. Such coverage plants the seed of competition for the next sick fuck to challenge.

    • @Megadeth to be fair i think they should at least talk about what to do with the mentally ill, not just be like "he's evil" ...noir do they really cover why it happened.

      in the end, if a school blew up the next day or something even more tragic happened tomorrow, they would drop everything to cover that, and the event and the loss would be forgotten.

      fucking parasites

      It's true. These days it's shooting rampages. In the 60s it was snipers from buildings.

  • Comment of user 'SatanIsGoodSatanIsOurPal' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • The FBI Forensic Psyhchiatrist in the end made an appearence on an HBO documantary where he interviews Richard Kuklinski The Ice Man. And has interviewed all known notorious killers and then some. We should take his advice. If anyone knows the mind of a looney tune. Its this guy.

  • Agreed, the media helps to promote these tragedies, they LIE about what happened, grant the psychos “celebrity” status and help to further desensitize the public to death. These events are turned into a sterilized reality TV show. They use these events to push their agenda.

      I made that comment the other day on a movie they are making about a serial killer called the ice man...I'm sure it will be a riveting watch, but maybe that's why it should not be done. I feel the same way about a lot of stuff in the mainstream media these days

    • @MR tommygun I feel the same about the ice-man movie. I had a conversation with friends who were excited about it being made, which made me sick that they were going to glorify his worthless life.

      The movie even goes as far as calling him "A Loving Husband".

  • something fills me with more rage then trying to argue gun rights, and thats CNN and other news companies exploiting the dead without regard for the family.

    in fact they have no moral fiber that they will show children and play shit over and over and over again, in fact CNN played fake live footage that got stuck and looped for like 4 min of the same woman saying the same line LOL.

    sad.....then they ask, how did you feel, how did you feel, what was your reaction that your kids dead or your fri More..

  • The event should be blacked out.Tthe killer/killers should become non-persons immediately. They should be given numbers and their names obliterated forever.

  • Unfortunately, the media benefits over these incidents happening in twos or threes - it allows them to make more content about a "trend" that they had a role in creating.

    • @sakb
      Good point even twitter has that "trending" function....anything going mainstream and benefiting commercially, kill for the ability to create a "trend".....even if its negative it helps sell......just about anything ':/

  • Congratulations to CNN. Without this massacre in Connecticut today, they would have had the usual 40 viewers. Anderson Pooper has already purchased a new tight t-shirt for his next broadcast.

  • The media has a financial incentive to hype these stories.

    • @ClearMud Sometimes it's not even financial, it's just political. Look at NBC/Zimmerman - CNN/Duke Rape Case. Find someone you hate and make shit up about them and then hype up the shit you made up.

  • Fucking media. When something terrible like this happens, I never watch anything for at least the first 24 hour's. You will learn nothing and will probably be fed hour's of guess work and false 'fact'.

  • Media wants more murderers to rape and kill your children, cause then they make more proffit with advertisement, and the bosses can get higher pay checks to buy cocain and hookers.

    The church also want more murderers out there cause then people will be afraid and they will go to church and donate moar money to the preist so he an buy cocain and pussy

    • @Haajib Haha. True. About the churches: More people will be afraid. When people are afraid they start searching for answers. People being afraid and searching for answers would in many cases end with them finding the wrong ones..

    • @Haajib don't forget Muslims killed over 300 children in one day in Belsan Russia and all over the world. The mosque must of made a lot money. And also women in Islam are for children and little boys are for pleasure. I saw that first hand since I served two tour in Afghan. Little boys being raped by elders in all the village that I went to. That's your Muslim

  • Everyone in Europe knows that everyday, every school house in America is shot up by mass-murderers with automatic military weapons that shoot armor piercing bullets. If you only watch the BBC, this is what is portrayed in Europe. Yet I feel safer visiting the American Midwest than any day in London England.
