Re: Guess which game PBS says caused Lanza to kill people?

It's so effing amazing how ignorant and uneducated some of the "reporters" and "news" stations are. I almost want to avoid all news these days because of stupidity on this level.

It's almost like they were paid to hide what the real problem is so that the real problems which trickle from our governing bodies aren't held accountable. Sickening.

They are now saying Lanza was obsessed with mass murderers.
That he wanted to "out do" the mass murderer in Norway. The guy that killed 77 people at a school. Though the local PD [sandy hook] is saying that is mere speculation.

IMO, maybe shit like this doesn't need to be fed on the national news. Because maybe by nationalizing it, they are only encouraging others to attempt to out do the last mass murderer.

So, news of mass killings shouldn't be reported nationally? Should the government step in and regulate what gets reported nationally?

reported, yes... made famous/infamous by saturating the nation with non-news about a singular event... no. Nice try, shinjuru... but no, just no. No one is talking about asking the government to regulate their own media. We are talking about self control here... and the People should really let the media know that they are out of line.

Nice try? I'm trying to wrap my head around this concept of having the news media lessen national attention to stories involving mass killings in an environment like a school facility. I find it absurd that it wouldn't be getting the most attention on any community level; Local, State, or National.

It's a thought that has been expressed so many times before. That reporting on these types of killings only encourages other would be killers to come out and try to out do the other guy.

Hence if it wasn't so overly reported in the media, then maybe there'd be fewer incidents of it.

The government doesn't have to step in, the news media could self censor as could the viewer.

I agree, Shin. It should get attention. They just need to be careful how they present these theories on why it happened.

There is no news. We've learned nothing in the wake of this. If the killer is still at large, or we think there might be a string of copy-cat attempts, then yeah... keep reminding folks... but that is not the case here. It is being hyped because of the administration's need for "tighter gun control"... while those who oppose are pushing for "a new look at mental health"... and THIS MSM goes after video games. All the while, we are still making an icon of the person, rather than focusing on how to provide better security.

Your all-or-nothing post about censorship as a response to a call for more responsible reporting is what earned a "nice try" from me. That is what I think was absurd. We don't need to know anything more about Lanza... (i don't even need to know his name)... we need to know what we can do to make schools safer... from those who break the law... that's how we learn from this event.

All or nothing? Certainly not my stand. I lean to all, if anything. You want less national attention by the news media and I'm just trying to understand how do you make that happen?

I think it is not so much the attention from the facts of the event, as it is the glamorizing of it. The name of person(persons) involved in the alleged crime are plastered all over the news, while reporters try to find any Joe blow that would sit for an interview. With nothing more to add, but how they swung on a swing together in third grade and never saw this coming. Lets face it, Jerry Springer gets ratings, so anytime something terrible happens the news turns into a circus for how ever long their analyst say it is selling commercial time slots. This in my opinion spawns the copy cat to perk up, see the hype then do something worse. The media should have a responsiblty to make sure this person is kept out of the celeberty status. I am not sure if that is even possible any more, but it feels like they are not even trying. But again that is my opinion and from what my Girlfriend tells me... It is wrong.
