Media Making VT Killer A "Sympathetic Figure"

He had issues. He didn't talk much as a child. Where were his parents. Nobody liked him. Whaaaaah!

Last night I was flipping through the channels and CNN had the "Developing Story" banner STILL up in regards to the VT shooting. What is left to develop? He shot up a school. He killed many people and himself. He made a video telling us why he did this, even if we don't understand all of it. Case closed. We should be focusing on helping VT heal and move forward, and replaying this video and showing the pictures of him with his guns do neither.

What is funny, or sad, is how the only people defending the showing of the video and pictures of the VT killer, is the media. If MSNBC, CNN and FOX NEWS think this is news, they need to re-think their direction. Because frankly, I am having a hard time lately differentiating between them and Inside Edition.
