Mourning On Teevee

Is there some compelling reason why these poor fuckes in Newtown, CT, shouldn’t be left alone to grieve as individuals and as a community in private, and not on goddamn motherfucken teevee?

    It is easier for journalists to do this crap than to pursue hard policy questions on gun availability? Just guessing.

    Yeah, I was sort of watching something or other which was interrupted (initially unnoticed) by some tasteless stomach-churning “service”. ,,,and now the piano player… oh ffs.

    This is NEWS. A saleable comodity – and sales is what newsmedia is about any more. So fukke finer feelings, make these poor bastards suffer some more in the rush to titillate the american amind*. Even NPfukken R pre-empted regular programming to give totally content-free “coverage” to this tragedy – like this was an event such as has never fukken happened in the USA before….

    * mind – amind; like moral – amoral

    I remember that in Dunblane, community leaders approached the media and politely told them to fuck off after 2 or 3 days. The dude who does the press conferences (wears the awesome hat) effectively said the same thing to the media in Newtown this morning, but I’m not sure they were listening.

    I think the media coverage has been disgusting, but I’m not sure I can put my finger on why I think that. It just doesn’t seem genuine to me.
