I hate Shannon “I am a mega Bitch” Watts and the Bloomberg funded Mother’s Demand Action, so I was amazed today when they released a press release today that was not their usual ranting incoherent garbage.
Here is part of what they said:
COVER MASS SHOOTERS LIKE MURDERERS, NOT CELEBRITIES
TO: BEN SHERWOOD, PRESIDENT OF ABC NEWS; DAVID RHODES, PRESIDENT OF CBS NEWS; DEBORAH TURNESS, PRESIDENT OF NBC NEWS; JEFF ZUCKER, PRESIDENT OF CNN WORLDWIDE; AND ROGER AILES, PRESIDENT OF FOX NEWS
We call on your media outlets to treat mass shooters as murderers seeking notoriety, not as celebrities. Specifically, we ask you to immediately enact a policy to follow these guidelines when covering mass shootings:
– Do not use the name of the shooter, except when necessary in initial identification or to aid in apprehension of a suspect still at large.
– Do not publish photos that glamorize or aggrandize the shooter.
– Do not air self-serving statements made by the shooter.
Hell has frozen Over
I am 100% behind this statement. We need to stop glorifying Mass Murderers in the Press.
I am sure that the press person for MDA will be immediately fired for making sense. That organization does not believe in Truth or Making sense. But today I agree with their above statement.
