Tragedy hits a small Wisconsin town. Typical mass murder style: guy goes apeshit, kills a bunch of people for no apparent reason. Crazy shit, happens a lot in this country for some reason.
Here’s what bothered me. CNN.com’s video link, titled:
Watch the victim’s mom describe her grief
They’re really just cutting to the chase now. No “watch the impact on family and friends”, no “watch the family’s reaction”, just sit back and “watch the victim’s mom describe her grief”.
That’s all we really want right? Just give us a taste of the tragedy. Let us experience some vicarious grief and horror. That’s why we watch the news, right?
I can’t bring myself to click that link. It’s tempting though.
