So letโ€™s be realistic and while tolerating the โ€˜if it bleeds, it leadsโ€™ mantra of the networks, remove some of the poison being spread by these idiots. Take away their identity and fameโ€ฆ a small price they deserve to pay for taking away peopleโ€™s lives.

David, this reminds me of Zeynep Tufekci call to stop feeding copycat scenarios.

  1. Thanks for sharing Aaron, I love this point by Tufekci, โ€œWe know how to cover terrible news like this, without doing it on the killerโ€™s terms.โ€

    This is the essence of idea of calling these people idiots. Donโ€™t just omit what they want, but actually belittle their actions and profile… Tell potential copycats that they will not be glorified in any way.
