Media Coverage of VA Tech Convocation was disgusting

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

I am angry at the media who covered the VA Tech memorial today. This should have been a private time for the families and friends.

If they had just shown the stage and ceremony, then I would have been okay with it - but they spent all of their time zooming in on the crying youth in the audience.

Sensationalism sells - but this was a disgusting and unforgivable act.

Another writer said it best with "Welcome to Baghdad!" - because this happens two or three times a day in Iraq.

I hope everyone will give these people some space and some time to heal!
