Does the media need to rethink gun violence coverage?

  • media research and coverage

    I spent many hours researching, media coverage. They have a job to do I get that. I also get that the public has the right to know what is going on in the world around them. Society is so easily influensed, and when crimes are being glorified more crimes are going to happen. The media has guidelines they have to fallow when covering a suicide. They should have guidelines on any violent crime as well.

  • The Pundits need to focus on the real issues

    As far as the actual reporting of the incident goes, the coverage is about right. A horrific event deserves a good deal of coverage.

    On the other hand, many of the opinion makers tend to focus on the tools used, (guns) and not on the motivation that drives an individual to commit such heinous acts, and what can be done about that.

  • Yes

    The media gives these killers exactly what they want by sensationalizing the story and leaving a traumatic mark on society. The fact is a lot of these killers probably seek these soft targets because they know that they can scar society the same way they feel they have been scarred.

  • Popular Media Perpetuates Gun Violence

    Every time the print and visual media delves into the gory details of a gun tragedy, it inflames the imagination of those who glory in violence. In their eagerness to report something that will retain readers and viewers, media personnel engage in highly invasive behaviors, exacerbating the pain and sorrow of anyone related to the violent act. It's not worth it.
