    The News Media Motivates Murderers

    The news media motivates murderers. After failed lives, and a lifetime of blaming others for their problems, the people who would commit these murders believe their future victims deserve to be killed. And they know that if they kill a lot of people in a dramatic fashion the news media will make them famous. They will then get the recognition they think the deserve. The news media does it over and over and over again. The killers think the media attention validates them. And the media gives them what they want. In fact, they both give what the other wants. I think there needs to be a national dialogue on the irresponsibility in the media. Maybe there needs to be some limits on the 1st Ammendment. Perhaps we need to start getting the media under control. It's become a sickening cycle - killers want attention, and the media wants something to report. And the more dramatic, the better for both of them. It had become a perpetual cycle. WE NEED MEDIA CONTROL.
