Shame on NBC

April 19, 2007

Imagine the pain of those families witnessing the murderous prelude to their loved ones’ death. Everywhere they turn is the last face their child saw.

Oh sure, Mr. NBC will say the “public has a right to know”. It would be “censoring” if they chose not to broadcast Cho Seung-Hui’s video and instead handed it immediately over to the police.

Bogus. Every day NBC “censors” out a hundred newsworthy stories because they are not sensational or sexy enough. NBC’s decision to broadcast the video is further evidence that network “news” is primarily gratuitous entertainment.

Whats next? Funniest Psycho Killer Home Videos?

    Another reason to just unplug it

  2. Just wait! I fear that in a few weeks, there’ll be another attempt to do one bigger than Va. Tech.’s melee. How else to become somebody who will go down in history? They should report the news but quit showing potential psychos how it was done and how they might make a bigger splash!

    NBC created this monster and they are trying to create another one by playing his propaganda video over and over. All the victims’ families should join together in a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT against NBC for wrongful death. You don’t believe it? Well, why did he sent his garbage to NBC? He knew that his propaganda would be shown by them because all he was really doing was mimicking their propaganda anyway. The Left says all us crackers deserve to die for what some moronic morons who lived 200 years ago did, and this guy just took that stupidity to it’s illogical conclusion. NBC is Cho’s father and ABC is his mother, and they are proud of their bastard child. Just turn on the TV and you can see their pride and joy.

    VT Killings: Have NBC and the media gone too far this time?

    The coverage has been extremely unsettling to me.

    I have such warm memories of Blacksburg, so it was hard in the first place to imagine that sort of melee in that setting.

    And then seeing that his face all over the tv and the front pages of newspapers (the Philadelphia Daily News had a full front page dedicated to the photo of him aiming straight at the camera, which freaked me out a bit, so I know it must have disturbed any friends or family of the victims if they saw it).

    Jules, perhaps a reggae song “just unplug it”. (note: Jules has unplugged her tv for almost three years now)(TVA tv anonymous).

    onepart, I hope we are wrong about a repeat but it seems the odds are with one. I remember being confounded when I heard of the first ever mass school shootings. It happened in Texas on August 1, 1966. “Why would anyone want to do that?” Now, I know better.

    jk, I am not sure what you mean regarding two hundred years ago but I do like your take on causation. I love “NBC is Cho’s father and ABC is his mother,”. ps: I am technically unable to link back to you.

    howard, yeah, the Daily News needs a dope slap. What was/is your connection with Blacksburg? The place seems cool. It certainly seems to engender deep loyalty and pride.

    qazse – My sister and her family lived down there for several years while my brother-in-law was in grad school at VT. I made it a point to visit as often as possible. It’s a beautiful town – perfect for college living because everything is pretty much walkable. It’s strange to think something like this could happen in a place like that, though by now we all know it could happen anywhere.

  8. qazse Says:

    howard, I am sorry.

    Unfortunately, that campus is going to be a mecca for the curious. I hope it is not exploited commercially. You know,”Come tour the numero uno of lone killer massacre sites!” You know, rationalize: make it while you can because he may not always be number one.

    It seems to me Blacksburg and VT will rise from this tragedy and persevere. They have some unique assets. It was always on my list of places to check out but never got down that far. I am still keeping it on my list and I will purposely not go near either infamous building.

    Seung-Hui Cho

    brilliance beyond thought
    disconnected soul storming
    magnified madness

    disconnected soul –
    or disconnected psyche?
    chemical madness
