Profiting Off Spilled Blood With Useless Information

About the mainstream media doing what they do best:

One of the worst things is when they get shooter names wrong.  I forget the last time that happened (maybe Sandy Hook?  Boston bombing?) but all I remember is some kid was up on the news then a while later they were like “Ooops, it was someone else who killed all those people.. oh well here is his name”.  I really hope the times that has happened resulted in the news outfits being successfully sued for millions of dollars for temporarily ruining a person’s life, not to mention the long term effects because of the internet being “forever”.


Side note I’m glad to see Dom still rocking the face armor.

I remember facebook exploding with the sandy hook shooter’s brothers’ name, people were going crazy and venting the most vile bullshit to the guy’s wall. Meanwhile the dude’s mother and brother are dead and he’s still probably trying to cope with how he could have done that.

That was a bad period of time, gave me little hope for humanity.

Yeah… The media doesn’t get caught up in the little things like facts and accuracy. It’s just about who can put something out first, right? I hope these folks sue the shit out of these organizations, but there’s probably some sort of legal precedent protecting these idiots via a liberal’s take on the “first amendment” or some shit. No accountability in the media… Ridiculous…

Who else remembered the a-hole, sensationalist reporter character in the Die Hard films who aided the villains thanks to his ambition?
