Newtown the Latest Example
of Media Overkill

Posted By:Kitty Myers, 12/20/2012 11:18:19 AM

I have been a resident of Newtown for over 30 years, save for a few years in the 1990s. I attended high school here. My oldest went through the school system here and my youngest is still at the high school. {snip} On behalf of all us, I beg the media: Please go away. Please stop cold calling my friends who live in Sandy Hook for potential news nuggets. Please stop harassing people like my mother as they leave funerals. Please stop parking on people´s lawns without permission. Please just...stop. For those of us who even have the heart…

Vulture msm has an agenda.

It´s gun control.

They have not a care about the grieving community. It´s all for their cause.

Exploit the families at every turn.

I have stopped watching the news when the reporters with their concerned look come on. We all know it is ratings that is now driving this. I wish that the news would also leave those people alone and let their healing begin and let them comfort each other.

Excellent article but alas, the media are like ticks...once they latch onto something, they gorge themselves until there is no more blood. They then seek another victim...err, story!

I dream of the day that someone looks into the camera when an invasive reporter sticks the microphone in the person´s face and says "don´t all of you out there think these people are nothing but g-d vampires? They´re living off of the blood of others and pretending to be legitimately interested when all they want is more blood" or something like that. I like #3´s tick analogy, but it still seems to me that they are more like vampires - ticks at least don´t intend the harm they cause.

There might be some justification if some actual hard facts would come out. It seems the products of this harassment are merely rumor, speculation, and scam.

Allows them to aide and abet the gun grabbers in their next step, and gives them an excuse to ignore the Benghazi hearings and oblamer´s intransigence over the "fiscal cliff" negotions. Win win win for the socialist propaganda complex.

In addition to the on-site media, I have a huge problem with the TV doctors, psychiatrists, etc. who continue to diagnose and put labels on people they have never even seen. Those of us with someone we love who has aspergers just have to shake our heads and get angry. With each day that passes I have less and less respect for most of the media.

The media throughout have been reprehensible.

No sense of proportion, propriety, or humanity whatsoever.

By dumb [and bad] luck, I heard several minutes of Mike Gallagher the other day. ["The Happy Conservative Warrior" -- so he says; IMHO, you could stick your bare hand in a metaphorical knife-drawer full of Mike Gallaghers and pull it out without a scratch; same for several others.]

I thought the segment-opener was a parody of the media wallow re Newtown. Nope, It was his actual intro to the discussion or whatever he did from there. I hit the tuner button.

#5: The commercial aspect of all this is obvious and understood. But hey, drug dealers sell their stuff as part of an "economy." Buying and selling are legitimate acts. Choosing to make drugs the product traded isn´t. Same here. Furthermore, there is a huge difference of both kind and scale between an intrusive "journalist" [hah!] sticking a mike in the face of someone suffering hideous loss, doing it again and again [as well as searching-out people who might have been affected], with no honest human compassion, and any given private individual seeing it on their TV [or iPod, whatever], alone. All the more when they keep watching and keep watching the sufferers. A huge difference. Is that "rubbernecking" blameworthy? Yes. Are the actions of the media people far, far, far worse? Absolutely! Absolutely! Reporters and viewers are not at all "equally responsible," any more than the Boeing assemblers are as responsible as bin Laden or Atta for the 9/11/2001 murders.

#8: As your respect for the media declines, the accuracy of your opinion increases. Keep it up.

I never watch this stuff.

Kudos to this writer for telling it like it is.

The media have lied for decades about all school tragedies.
Friend of mine explained to us all about 50 years ago how CBS lied in their story about
Webster Groves.

These MSM Ho´s can put on their kneepads and line up for their five seconds with... Wacky Baracky.

They´re all in it together to screw normal people.
Bitter clingers with guns and Bibles.

This has given me much time to listen to my beautiful Christmas CD´s. This story was worn out to me by last Friday night. Once you cover the basics, that about does it except for the rubberneckers who have to hear every little detail.

Poster #13, you lasted until Friday night?

I was worn out the second time they repeated themselves without any accurate facts at all.

If I ruled the world, when something like this shooting happens, the TV stations would grow a brain and a conscience. They would "cut in" to programming no more than once in fifteen minutes and if they had updates, they could scroll it along either the top or bottom of the screen, while continuing "regular" programming.

I detest all those supposed "experts" being "interviewed" (actually spouting unproven theories) ad nauseum while never knowing any facts and just inflaming the public.

Not wishing ill on anyone else, but if there is another tragedy, they will be out of there in a flash.

It´s morbid curiosity.

Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms

Pity the poor Chicago reporter. She is running out of ways to describe black mob violence without using the words “black mob violence.”Reporting on race is usually not a problem. Every day she writes about black caucuses, black churches, black police, black firemen, black schools, black teachers, black universities, black history, black music, black literature, black art, black television, and black radio. {snip} It’s a pretty easy gig: Or it was until the black mobs started showing up three years ago. Since then Chicago has seen at least 50 episodes of black mob violence of all shapes and sizes

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

´America´s royal baby´: How Chelsea´s first
child could give Hillary Clinton a boost in

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

   

 



 
Ted Cruz, Invoking Reagan,

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
