Disgusting Profession

It has recently been reported that the mass murderer at Virginia Tech sent in a manifesto the media prior to his murders. Now the media is airing it for everyone to see. It shows his complaints and grievances to the world.

The media has gone too far on this one. There was a poll recently that said more young people wanted to be famous rather than rich in this country. The desire to be famous is the culture of this killer's generation... and the media is falling for it by publishing this guy's picture, by publishing his name, and now worst of all by airing this guy's manifesto. How is it that this individual has earned the right for millions maybe even hundreds of millions to see his picture, to know his name, and to listen to his complaints? Because he murdered 33 people. He figured that if he murdered people would listen to him, people would study him, people would try to understand him...and now he is right. There will be copycat murders. There will be more kids who see that you can become famous by committing horrid crimes and it will be the media's fault. They are no longer reporting the news, The media is aiding and abetting the evil that men do. The media has become the drug dealers of these fame seeking murderers. The media supplies them with the goods to get high, and the innocent suffer. They can't stop doing it because their ratings are tripling by airing his manifesto. The media is one of the most disgusting professions. It's sickening. We need a new rule. Members in the media need to be boycotted, they need to be criticized and ostracized for giving this murdered a stage in the same way Don Imus was..... Will anyone stand up?

A voluntary, self-imposed rule, of course. But you can't get away from it by just turning off the tube. The internet loves propagating such things as the pictures of the killer. So the next guy will just send his propaganda to Drudge or SmokingGun or the snuff site du jour. What you'll ask for next is a China-styled law for the internet. It's coming.

The media did a heck of a job keeping the identity and pictures of the duke rape accuser secret. Why can't they do that here?
