But if you used a gun to murder a bunch of innocent people the media would be on you like a fat man at his favorite all you can eat buffet. The media would show your photo,name, bio, the gist of what your suicide note said,tell us your hobbies, what kind of guns you got, where you got your guns, how many bullets you got, ask your victims stupid questions(like how do you feel,are you mad at the guy who did this and so on)and give a soap box to anti-2nd amendment trash.And the media will do this for weeks or even months.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, it's true. Canada's news networks are not unbiased but at least they are less sensational. They tried to introduce Fox News North and barely anyone up here watches it. This country just doesn't have the culture that appreciates salacious news reporting. It's viewed as unpalatable in most cases. People want to hear the facts, not a diatribe.

    The way the American media reports on these kinds of crises is why they continue to happen. Killers get all the spotlight, with detailed background stories and psychological profiling, and the victims are made out to be second rate. With that kind of shot at 15 seconds of fame, what psycho wouldn't go for it?

    It's not America bashing, it's the truth. Corporately owned media is a major problem in the United States and it has led to a dumbing down of public awareness. In the 80's the news reporting was way better. Now most news hours consist of two falsely positioned opponents screaming at each other, or at the very least poorly worded reports like the one in the OP demonstrates.
