Despicable

The cover of today’s New York Daily News is absolutely despicable. Yesterday, a TV news reporter and her photographer were brutally gunned down on live TV by a disgruntled, mentally disturbed former employee of the station.

On today’s cover the NYDN ran a series of frame grabs from the gunman’s camera as he committed the murders, the video coming from the gunman himself after he posted it online. The full story is here http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/26/us/virginia-shooting-wdbj/

I won’t link to the cover as I don’t want to provide link reference or clicks. What angers me the most is we live in a society that refuses to condemn the sensationalism or do anything about it, and in some cases celebrate the outrageous like this.

Complaining about it is a start, but it won’t get anything done. Until we stop consuming this garbage, it will go on. And, that’s just what the scum want us to do.
