I'm so angry at CNN's coverage of the killings in Omaha. Did they not learn anything from the Virginia Tech incident and the backlash of the public who wanted the lives of the victims honored rather than that of the killer? I just went to, and I can't even find the names of the victims (and I know they've been released), much less anything about who they were or what their lives were like.

Yet intimate details of the killer's life are there. And it's exactly what he wanted--his suicide note said at least now he'd be famous. How many others out there are going to see that this method works if you're depressed and seeking fame?

I'm not saying we don't want to/need to see some of that, but my God, please, please provide some balance. Perhaps other media outlets are doing a better job, but certainly isn't...and yes, I already sent them a letter.

I totally agree. They don't care. It's all about the money.

Excuse my crassness, but CNN is a soulless whore.
