I am starting to wonder if the media coverage of the rampage shootings such as VA Tech and Columbine play a significant factor. We learn all about these demented individuals and this does seem to play a part in the crime itself.
We do live in a free society and the media is unrestricted. We get the media we deserve at times
and the lack of critical coverage of Obama outside of Fox is a joke. Our country is in a recession people want to find jobs and there is a real sense that government is out of control.
I am quite amused by commies who parrot the imbecile Noam Chomsky who waxes idiotically about corporate media. Commies create media events that often end in violence like the idiotic Gaza convoys. The notion that this was organized by terrorists and Communists as a media event and that the supplies were not needed is lost.
I am reminded of an event that was rather amusing at the RNC convention in NYC years back.
A woman screamed hysterically at Republicans you killed my brother. The cameras focused on a woman who was out of control. A veteran who was anti war asked the details and it was apparent that this persons brother fell off the aircraft carrier and the aircraft carrier had nothing to do with the Iraq War.
Terrorism is a publicity stunt largely perfected by commies with Red Brigades and Pseudostinians killing people for media coverage. Of course we can't and shouldn't ban coverage of 9-11 type of atrocities. However, maybe we need to rethink article after article on the lives of criminals and terrorists.
Unfortunately, the stories do sell and that is what drives publication. The media is merely guilty in those cases of giving us what we wish to read. They do this with everything except their sacred cow politician Obama and to a lesser extent Hillary.
The First Amendment is a great thing, but it comes with a price. The media wouldn't print those stories if we as a society didn't demand them.
Maybe a larger story should be can you still name the Columbine Killers or remember the details about the VA Tech killer. The fame is fleeting and they ultimately return to irrelevancy.
