Take your cameras and shove them up your asses, and leave these people alone.
SEC SEC SEC!!!
Making them relive it over and over for ratings seems to be the approach, similar to the poor little girl they had on CNN while they were still resolving the situation day off, if I'm a parent I woulda told them where to put that camera
Your logic is boggling my mind
I was just talking about this with a friend. Media-worthy or not, let these folks grieve and piece back their lives in peace.
A few years back I got so tired of how the media acts on almost all fronts, that I just stopped paying attention. I don't watch the news, don't go to news sites. I know it's not making a difference, but as long as people keep watching/clicking, they're going to keep doing what they are doing. I guess I'm a bit less informed on current affairs, but I don't even care. The way the media handles itself and the way it flavors the news to feed its audiences is a disgrace.
They try and act like they care, but in the end it's about ratings, which leads to money, and their ability to use this tragedy for political purposes of gun control.
Like Obama's fake tears the other day, they can't let an opportunity like this go to waste
Agreed. He's full of it.
Totally agree. Kids are sittn around watchn this BS media coverage thinkn this wOrld sucks i can get some attn. really pisses me off
Obama a phony asshole
Real slick move breaking into the sunday night fb game
Idiot is still campaigning.
Fellas that is Satan in disguise
So what is the change Obama talked about? Gun control? Obamacare? something totally different?
I would guess this is his chance to go after the second amendment, but can't see how anything serious comes from it?
How can you blame the media and slam Obama for their responses to senseless gun violence?
I get the hyper-sensitivity of the 2nd Amendment literalists to another mass killing causing some discussion around gun-control but slamming to media for giving people a forum to express their feelings, ask questions, putting back stories to names, share details, etc. is stupid. We should have a debate around guns, assault weapons, etc.
Also, I get the standard republican stance to criticize Obama for any and every thing but come on. Any president would have spoken about the tragedy. Any human being would be brought to tears about 6-7 year olds, teachers and principal losing their lives at the hands of a madman with an AR-15.
Save the politics, blame game & opportunity to slam the commander in chief for another time.
What's sad is they don't give NEAR enough air time to the stories about the gunmen that are NOT successful. As long as they keep making these people infamous, it's going to keep happening.
USMC- Breaking shit since 1775
totally agree. people here would criticize obama no matter what he did with this. guys dont misplace your anger
I agree any president would make a national satement on this trajedy. How could they not? Although I agree with him on some things, I fear the respone will be fixated on guns, which I don't think is the real issue. It is the easy fix, or so some think. What factors led up to this and the other mass shootings recently? There is a much bigger mental health issue at play, but it is difficult to recognize and very difficult to treat. Do movies and video games today have anyting to do with this? Haven't heard anything about that.
As far as gun control goes, this kid didn't own any of them. They were his mom's. How to you control that by legislation? What mechanism would have kept a legally sane person from owning a gun(s), which was the case with her? Some would say ban all guns. I don't want that to happen. Remember the overwhelming majority of gun owners go completely unnoticed because they don't do anything wrong with them.
Aggieque, are you blind to the Federal Government's creeping action toward limiting/removing our First, 2nd, and 4th Amendment rights? Murders happen. T&P to the victims families. Keep the 2nd Amendment safe and legal. And don't tread on me.
And right on "que"ue
Those were phony tears by Obama. As in he didn't cry. There were no tears, he was wiping dry eyes. Watch the PC, everyone could tell he wasn't really crying. He'll he could barely read off the script someone wrote for him. So inept.
It's shameful that a man who is supposed to be showing emotion is attempting to do it by reading off a script. Every damn word of it, absolutely nothing from his heart. It would be comical if it wasn't so sad. Just a poor excuse for a president.
I'm sorry your delusion for all things liberal and Obama blind you from the ruse of this current presidency.
Corruption, bribes, lies, scapegoats, etc. it's right there for you to see. He doesn't even try to hide it, and sheep like you are taking the rest of us down the shitter with you.
We could save the politics for another time but you and your damn liberal pansy ass friends always use these tragedies for a political purpose. Hypocrisy much?
Easy, bro. Nothing good comes of situations like the country has just seen. People are going to play the political card in any way they can. Republicans included. There is no end to hypocrisy when politicians are involved. It's on both sides of the fence. And before you blast, yes, I consider myself a republican. I vote republican and own 11 guns 7 of which are semi auto's.
At this point there is no right answer. If firearms are restricted we will have a much bigger issue on our hands. It will make the drug war look like a child's game. People will get guns illegal or not.

And this is why we'll get nothing accomplished in this country. If said politician isn't on your side, he's fake/acting/scheming/politicizing/ (insert any applicable action here). And if someone doesn't hate that person with a vengeance, they are a liberal hippy commie/bible riding gun toting lune from the right.
I'm not even 30 years old, but I feel like an old guy who just shakes his head in dumbfoundment at how worked up people get about the last 2 presidents. It's almost comical to see people who were supportive of Bush be against everything Obama does, and see people who were so critical of Bush support everything Obama does even though there's a lot of stuff that overlapped.
I go back to my original post on this thread. Our news is spoon fed to us in the flavor we enjoy. So we tend to just listen to the channel that we like the taste of the most.
I won't go into the age debate b/c it would side track the thread, but there is something to be said for life experience. You'll understand when you get older
I didn't call him a hippie or a commie, I called him a pansy b/c most liberals vote like women, all emotion and little rationale. (that's also a joke, but you know what they say about jokes)
Just because I bash him doesn't mean I liked Bush. I served under both too.
Is what happened a tragedy? Absolutely! Que is sitting here telling us to not play politics while his president is playing politics before the crime scene is even covered. That's my point.
It doesn't matter what side I'm on, there was fake crying and terrible acting going on....WATCH the video, don't take my word for it if you don't believe me. And yes there was scheming and politicizing of the event even before the bodies have been moved. Don't take my word for it just listen to what is coming out of the WH. Don't get mad at the messenger, the facts are still the same no matter who delivers the message.
He cries tears for children being murdered when he sends droids and murders other children? Hmm.
So whoever voted me down... Whatever deNile aint just a river in egypt. Obamas timing is amazing! Everything he has done including seal team six just happens at the right time. Oh thats right, we rnt a Christian nation anymore! Tell that to our forefathers. Only have to know history ( roman empire) to understand what is happening in America. But thats ok, living in ignorance is so much easier. I bet u drive a Chrysler 2. Hahaha
