    There has been no suspect IDENTIFIED/ There is video of a possible suspect. I would think Politix (who jumped the gun on this just like everyone else) and News Media in General should be just a little less sensational.

    Seems a 4chan think tank collaborated and came up with this:

    If they'd release all the videos/photos they have to the internet, I'm sure 4chan and Reddit would not only find the person who did it, but also have their full name, address, place of employment, SSN, closest living relatives and the answers they used on their 2nd grade spelling test, all within a weeks notice.

    I absolutely agree. My Criminal Justice prof has emphasized that the media can be your enemy or your friend. I feel that during any major situation like this the media are the worst because they stir up so much dust that it's harder to see the clearer actual picture.

    I miss true journalists . . . you know, the old timers who used to verify their facts via multiple sources before opening their cake holes. What passes for media these days is sensationalism produced in order to make a lot of money. Public service is an oxymoron.

    @SavageMazx i thought that a news service was just that... isn't it supposed to be about reporting the news, rather than selling advertising?

    just like developing new cures and making them available to the public for a reasonable price is all about helping people to live a better life, right?

    boy, was i ever naive.

    @dances-weebles use to be that way, now it's a puppet of the political system and it is ratings driven. Wake up and smell the hogwash they are pushing lol

    @SavageMazx shyte... are you trying to tell me that people don't run for political office because they have ideas that will make the world a better place? are you saying that they're all in it for profit?

    SAY IT ISN'T SO!

    CNN looks foolish right now. I wonder if the new boss, Mr. Zucker, will cause some reporters to take advantage of "outplacement assistance"?

    We need to be careful and wait for the investigation to thoroughly to the job.....
    I can understand media wanting to give out information but if they need to maybe they should do so with a caveat saying that it is fluid information and due to change.....

    If they would hold the media accountable and hand out some kind of punishment then maybe they wouldn't be in a hurry to be the first team on site.

    No doubt media sometimes jumps the gun.What disturbs me more is the statement'We ask the media to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate OFFICIAL channels before reporting.Many communist and oppressive governments dont ask but demand the same.

    No vote . The media should just report the news as it happens & drop the one-upmanship , personal feelings & political agendas . Give us the news & allow us to form our own opinions or views . The bias coming from the media is the main reason I only watch about 1 or 2 hours of TV a day . I prefer to seek out my own answers.

    We are blaming the news media, guess what, they were trying to please we the viewers, If you want to shut this down fast, quit watching the news on the news channels!! That is our decisions as citizens and viewers. I don't blame the liberal or conservative stations, I blame us for being lead blindly by the media. And we are still speculating all sorts of myths even on Politix, but is US as much as THEM, we invite it.

    The reporters want to scoop the other news networks. They also like to stir up rat droppings. Or they were told something that was not to be leaked yet. Especially if the description was correct.
