I find the idea that the media is complicit in these shootings to be absolutely ridiculous. People have a right to report on the news, and people have a right to know what's happening in the world.
The brutal and horrific nature of these things tends to cause people to scramble to point fingers and grasp desperately. But blaming the wrong people isn't the answer. It's not movies. It's not comic books. It's not music. It's not video games. And it's not journalism.
