I've contacted my Louisville station about their coverage of the bank shooting

I asked them why they cover shootings differently from drunk/distracted driving.

I'm fed up with days of coverage of every detail they can find -- picture, work history, education, etc. etc.

Aside from the "encouraging copy-cat" aspects and the fear-mongering the pure unchecked bias of their wallowing in the details is disgusting.

Anyone else feel this way?

    The school shooter needed attention and texted a friend that he/she would be in the news.

    Apparently the bank shooter tried to live stream the attack.

    Our news media is making these people heroes in a sick and perverted way, which feeds the twisted egos of those who crave the attention their lives are not gathering.

    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    They want to ban firearms, not alcohol. Any bad publicity is good publicity for their demented cause.

    MSM. Not your Friend.

    Their "Agenda," is pretty well established.
