David Hogg is wrong about gun control, but he is right about the news media. I’d say that Hogg didn’t go far enough in condemning the media’s role in getting our kids killed.
Some of us will kill to be on the news. We have data that mass murders have increased due to the news coverage they receive. Is celebrity violence real, and how do we fix it?
Our major news networks have not signed up to the new media guidelines. Companies like ABC, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, CBS, and CNN have not signed on to any of the efforts to stop celebrity violence.
After each mass murder, the news media shouts that attacks on our schools are a growing epidemic. Once we read past the headlines and we see that the news media is complicit in killing our kids.
