A little rant

I am saddened and horrified by the shootings at Virginia Tech.

That said, I don’t understand the need of the news media to bombard us with their lack of information regarding these events two or three times every hour.  It’s not as if the gunman is still on the loose, shooting people.  This is not a state of emergency where we need to be updated on a regular basis.  And the fact is, the news media does not have all the facts right now and are not likely to have them for quite some time.

In my opinion, we don’t need to be constantly reminded of the evils in this world.  I’m not saying we shouldn’t be kept informed, but to continually hype these events with nothing new to add  serves no purpose other than exploitation.  At least wait until all the facts are in before reporting on it.

No wonder we’re such a neurotic nation.
