VT Massacre

Of course as we all know a gunman who was a student at Virginia Tech killed 33 people including himself during a rampage on the campus on Monday, April 16th. At first details were scarse as to who the gunman was and if there was any motive to the attacks, but it was very interesting to watch and read how all the different news outlets handled the story and the sensitive information they recieved.

Things got really interesting when a package showed up at NBC in New York that had been mailed by the gunman the morning of the shootings.

Some people were upset that NBC chose to air the disturbing images and video that the multimedia package contained.

Other things to note are the fact that CNN decided to air the names of some of the victims before there was an official list of all of those killed.
