Sandy Hook Media Response
The role of the media beyond the immediate coverage of the disaster should be one of precise introspection rather than sensationalism. The responsible stations, press, and networks should be focused on two things; how people can help those families and others like them who are victims of random violence and second what exactly took place, without speculation.
Often the media with political leanings will exploit these horrid events to advance their political views and that should be avoided at all costs. By finding out what EXACTLY happened, however, we as a country can use those facts to develop useful policies that may impact and help avoid future potential acts of random violence. Since we are now all members of the social media our individual moral media compass should tell us to tread carefully in our comments so as not to do any further harm to the grieving families and communities but to offer our love and support.
