How the American Media Fuels A Cycle of Violence
The media is partly to blame for why mass shootings keep occurring. They're not the only reason, we do still have to blame the shooter. But it's a complex issue involving the media, our culture, how we raise our kids, etc.
The media's portion of responsibility is outlined well in the video below. "Media is a business" I've recommended Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator before and it does a great job of illustrating why journalism is now sensationalized in an effort to get 'more clicks'.
If it was up to me, they'd never show the face or speak the name out of the shooter's face. No need to give him celebrity. No need to let other crazies imagine how much airtime they could achieve.
