    Let's not give the evil animals, that kill innocents just to enhance their noteriety, any more recognition.
    Let's not use their given names.  Lets only refer to them as evil animals.
    Let's not watch TV shows that go on and on about these evil animals.  Let's not read newspapers, magazines or internet articles that examine every minutiae of their lives.
    Let's lift up those that stand up to evil.
    Let's celebrate the lives of those who are taken from us by the  evil animals.
    Let's minimize them.  Let's throw them on the rubbish heap of history.
    Let's only call them what they really are, EVIL ANIMALS!

      I understand your sentiments, but unfortunately to impose such restrictions (not that you are suggesting that) on the citizenry would be the same as taking away their freedom . What is great about this country is we can choose to not participate, to not listen, an exercise of our individual freedom and not an infringement on the freedom of others. So let's do that, call a spade a spade, an evil animal an evil animal!

      The non-stop deluge of information concerning these killers seeks to create ratings for the networks. The rush to get the information out led to the wrong identification of the killer among other things. I personally do not want to read/watch anything about this, I have no interest in the killer or his reasons for killing. If some people want to watch that's fine with me but if you're looking to try and understand why I think you will be disappointed.

        The media doesn't do a good job of vetting anymore - they make mistakes all the time when reporting on such events and once they make a mistake the damage can never be corrected with their usual retraction on the back page or burried somewhere long after the story was front page news with the inaccuracies. Then there is the stuff they do purposely like editing the Trevon 911 tape, or running a story based on falsified documents like Rather did on Bush. Real journalism no longer exists in America.

          Just look at what the media got wrong in the early stages of the Newtown shooting The number of dead was initially reported as anywhere from the high teens to nearly 30. The final count was established Friday afternoon: 20 children and six adults, as well as Lanza’s mother and the shooter himself.
              For hours on Friday, the shooter was identified as Ryan Lanza, with his age alternatively reported as 24 or 20. The confusion seemed explainable when a person who had spoken with Ryan Lanza said that 20-year-old Adam Lanza, the shooter who had then killed himself, could have been carrying identification belonging to his 24-year-old sibling.This case of mistaken identity was painfully reminiscent of the Atlanta Olympics bombing case in 1996, when authorities fingered an innocent man, and the news media ran with it, destroying his life. Such damage was averted in Ryan Lanza’s case largely by his public protestations on social media, repeatedly declaring “It wasn’t me.”
              Initial reports differed as to whether Lanza’s mother, Nancy, was shot at the school, where she was said to be a teacher, or at the home she shared with Adam Lanza. By Friday afternoon, it was determined that she had been shot at their home. Then doubts arose about whether Nancy Lanza had any link to Sandy Hook Elementary. At least one parent said she was a substitute teacher, but by early Saturday, an official said investigators had been unable to establish any connection with the school. That seemed to make the massacre even more confusing. Early on, the attack was said to have taken place in her own classroom and was interpreted by more than one on-air analyst as possibly a way for Adam Lanza to strike back at children with whom he felt rivalry for his mother’s affection.
              At first, authorities said Lanza had used two pistols (a Glock and a Sig Sauer) in the attack and left a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle in the trunk of a vehicle. But by Saturday afternoon, the latest information was that all the victims had been shot with the rifle at close range.
              There were numerous versions of what Lanza was wearing, including camouflage attire and black paramilitary garb.
