Cis: Media Gave Killer What He Wants

But when I see the picture of the young man in the paper, I have got to say, I am not only upset with him even in his demented state of mind … but also with the Media … To me, the picture says it all. There he is in his range, with a big smile on his face … like he got what he wanted. MEDIA COVERAGE. He doesn’t have the demeanor of say the Unbomber, (which by the way, his lawyer has stepped up to the plate to be a lawyer for this mental case.) No head bowed like one usually is … when someone thinks the government is taking over his mind, and other claims by this person. No anger of say, like McVeigh, but it appears to be the, I am enjoying all of this attention. Sad on so many levels/Cis, From A Simple Mind. More here.

Question: How do you think the media have handled the Tucson shootings?
