Welcome to the 21st Century were the World is instantly made aware of the shootings that occur in our country. CNN, Fox News, and all the other networks are going to pick this event a part, piece by piece. Wolf Blitzer, Piers Morgan, etc, etc. Boy, they will just go crazy over this because they get to plaster their faces on the news again, and people will be watching.

Can I be honest with you Lane? We have over 300 million people living in this country, and the ONLY focus you see, is what the television networks cover, and that is the SENSATIONAL EVENTS. They (news networks) are the most hated people in this country right now. Every time something happens, the news networks pounce on it like a sharks going after bait. We will now hear about this for about a week or so, and it will all die down. That is how it all works over here. Media, media, media.

Not to say these type of events are not horrific, but can you please try to put in into perspective with all of those human beings that were recently killed in Syria with chemical weapons? Please?

Go and tell that to the relatives of the 12 dead, I am sure you will put a big smile on their faces and they can even start to give you a big hug.
