Anyone else remember the "Tylenol killings"?
Some whackjob poisoned some bottles in stores. The media pounded it to death... and then other, totally unrelated whackjobs started doing the same thing across the country.
Note how shootings seem to occur in groups. I blame most of them on the mass media, for putting the idea into the heads of other whackjobs.
I SURE DO REMEAMBER IT AN SUDDENDLY FOOD TAMPERING WAS THE THING.
THE MEDIA IS PROTECTED BY THE SAME CONSTITUTION GUN OWNERS ARE AN YET THEY FEEL ITS THERE RIGHT TO DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT.
I SOME TIMES WONDER IF FREEDOM OF SPEACH SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO COMPANYS THAT SELL THERE SPEACH TO ADVITSIERS . . LETS ALL REMEMABER THAT FREEDOM OF SPEACH WAS NOT TO ALLOW NEWS COMPOANYS TO MAKE MONEY SELLING ADD TIME. IT WAS THERE TO GIVE INDIVIDUALS THE RIGHT TO SPEACK OUT .
TODAY THE NEWS IS ALL ABOUT SENSATIONALISM AN LITTLE ABOUT GETTING THE STORY RIGHT.
