Creepy

news01.jpgI've had the sound off all day on MSNBC because I'm having a hardtime watching them take a bath in the Virginia Tech shootings, but the video they just aired of the shooter really sent me round the twist.

I remember during Columbine there were measures taken to assure that the gunmen's videos and writings didn't get released to the public, and that they did not become cult heros as a result of their actions. It seemed like a bit of decency amidst the mayhem. I really don't know what's to be gained journalistically by broadcasting the killer's videos other than a ratings bonanza, but it seems quite ghoulish.

Drudge, of course, is all over it.
